Justin Bieber is more than just a pop sensation, he has business acumen as well and was featured on the cover of the June 4, 2012 issue of FORBES. Bieber led a $1.1 million seed round in selfie-app Shots which is a mega-hit with high schoolers – taking, sharing, and liking selfies. Bieber’s decision to get involved in tech investing came from his manager, Scott Braun who knew Bieber’s social media influence could be massive. Bieber also plays a role in his investments by tuning in on conference calls and learning the business inside and out. Bieber has also invested in Spotify and Tinychat––a free, web-based video/audio/desktop chat system.
