“Great time last night with some of the newest investors in Omni. Being one of Drakes first tech investments and doing deep dives on the crossover between tech and music from an end user perspective…is wild. Love seeing intelligent diversification of all industries. Execution is everything, back to the warehouses for me! #somacapital #ovo” he wrote.
Omni’s is an app that organizes and store personal items for people. A user can have his or her items taken to an Omni facility. The items will then be catalogued, photographed, and stored for the user.
The user can go through his items on the app and select what he or she will be wearing the next day. The items will then be sent to the user within the next 24 hours.
Drake has other investment which includes designing for Nike, a restaurant in Canada, and other entertainment related investments. He should climb up the Forbes rich list in no time if they all turn out great.
