Drake Invest In New Mobile App and Tech Start-Up

Posted On: January 05, 2016

Drake is venturing into the world of technology with a new investment towards a mobile app.

The Hotbling musician continues to magnify himself as a businessman and his brand, OvO. In his latest joint venture with Omni which is a tech start up, Drake links up with the creator of the app Thomas McLeod to launch the app on a wider scale. The app is developed to organize and store consumer's items in a warehouse to provide space for storage. The items are photographed, documented and whenever a consumer wanted to retrieve one of them or all their items, they would view them on the Omni app, request their items; and an Omni concierge would deliver it the consumer in less than 24 hours.

Drake is currently an investor in the mobile app/tech-start-up but the app's founder McLeod asserted how he wanted Drake to be more involved with behind the scenes creativity, the marketing of the app and ways to improve it. The app is not available on the market yet and a release date is still pending.
