"As we began getting pitched by more and more entrepreneurs, we learned that the Hollywood stuff was a very minor reason why they were interested in us," explains Parr. "What they really want is a team that understands that world, but also has deep experience in viral marketing and media." Parr believes he fills that "media" piece, thanks to his experience at Mashable. His fellow co-founders --Matt Schlicht and Mazy Kazerooni -- have deep experience in the viral marketing world, through past work at UStream and a newer startup that helps market young artists like Tyga and Lil [read] Twist. No comment from Parr on the fundraising piece, but word is that not too many celebrities signed up -- leading DominateFund to hit up more traditional VC fund investors like funds-of-funds (which may be a blessing in disguise, since celebrity capital can be a bit higher-risk than that of institutional investors).
