MTN Media Productions, LLC. (“MTNMP”) created “Moving The NEEDLE (“MTN”). MTN produces content to “normalize” venture capital for Gen X’ers, Gen Y’s & Gen Z’s in professional sports, entertainment: music, television, & film, and art who have accumulated wealth, power, and/or key positions in the marketplace. MTN presents “risk” as an editorial thread to “story tell” how one’s life experiences to identify, manage, and overcome risk should equally parallel how one identifies, manages, and overcomes risk within his/her own portfolio.

MTN normalizes a new VC subculture culture with drip, sauce, cool as a commodity, alongside an increased appetite for entrepreneurship and investment in growing verticals, i.e. tech, real estate, etc. Applying risk control strategies toward capital-at-risk in investment, will create solutions for access-to-capital with decreased volatility levels. Implementing strategies to protect principal capital-at-risk will unite value and opportunity and facilitate scale.

Limited access to capital and volatility rates create a demand for risk control. MTN is the new normal in venture capital. MTN editorializes all the effects of one’s learned behavior and skills acquired growing up in a “risk environment” identifying, measuring, and overcoming risk.

MTN is a metaphor for scaling in business. Equally it is a metaphor for turntablism in Hip Hop Pop Culture. MTN uses Hip Hop Pop Culture to teach venture capital strategies and subject matters through our curriculum:
