We are focused on identifying a business combination target within the experiential entertainment industry across live, location-based, venues or as played across mobile platforms. Specific sectors that we will target span live events, family entertainment, casino gaming, destination hospitality, sports, sports betting and iGaming, and social and casual mobile games. We will pursue both consumer facing operators as well as the business-to-business platforms that support them.
We believe our distinguished and curated team of founders, management and the Board provides us a distinct advantage to identify a leading experiential entertainment company and execute a successful business combination.
