    Co-founded in 2016 by 2x NBA Champion and Finals MVP Kevin Durant and his manager Rich Kleiman, Thirty Five Ventures serves as the umbrella for all of their business interests across sports, tech, culture and more. From initial success in venture investing (including Acorns, Coinbase, Dapper Labs, Just Women's Sports, Postmates, and Overtime), 35V has grown into a multi-faceted sports, media, and entertainment company. In 2019, 35V launched Boardroom, a media network that sits at the intersection of sports, entertainment, business, and culture. Recent film and TV projects under the Boardroom umbrella include the Academy Award-winning Two Distant Strangers (Netflix), the critically acclaimed scripted series SWAGGER (Apple TV+), and documentary NYC Point Gods (Showtime). 35V also holds a portfolio of ownership stakes in emerging and undervalued teams sports properties, including Athletes Unlimited, Gotham FC, Philadelphia Union, and Premier Lacrosse League. Last fall also saw the opening of The Durant Center in Suitland, Maryland, the Kevin Durant Charity Foundation's college pipeline program in conjunction with College Track.
