You substantially know Chamillionaire from a strain “Ridin,’” but did we know a Grammy Award leader is also a successful startup investor? He has had several auspicious outcomes, including Cruise, that sole to General Motors and Maker Studios, that was bought by Disney.
Now he’s perplexing his palm during a startup of his own. If you’re a Chamillionaire superfan, we might already be informed with Convoz. The group did a soothing launch of a amicable media app final summer and now they’re prepared to get a word out to a world.
Chamillionaire recently denounced Convoz with a above display to an financier and businessman throng during a Upfront Summit in Los Angeles. They were wowed. (Aspirational entrepreneurs should watch a clip if you’re wondering what nailing a representation looks like. I’ve never seen a slideshow display that flowed so well. Bonus: Snoop creates a cameo.)
So what is Convoz?
Chamillionaire tells me that a video-centric height aims to be “the place where we go to speak to people.” He wants Convoz to be an app where people inverse face-to-face with stars like Shaq or find new friends with common interests.
He was desirous to emanate an choice to Twitter, that he feels is impressed with trolls. “I only wasn’t happy with a communication channels that are now existent on amicable media,” pronounced Cham.
Convoz allows people to upload 15-second clips, mostly addressed to sold celebrities. They can afterwards watch and select that ones they wish to respond to, infrequently broadcasting a summary for all to see.

My initial greeting was that this seemed like a lot of bid for an in-demand individual, though Chamillionaire didn’t consider that this would take most longer than scrolling by other amicable media. He isn’t awaiting everybody to get a response, though believes “there’s an event to prioritize a people who unequivocally merit it.”
He hopes that users will be reduction expected to brag or harass others when they uncover their face and aren’t stealing behind an unknown digital persona. And distinct Twitter, where everybody can see people’s mentions, Convoz users are means to approve what’s being pronounced about them publicly. It “gives a curator of a review some turn of control.”
Building a amicable media height isn’t easy. Other than a biggest networks like Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and Twitter, most have flamed out.
But Chamillionaire isn’t deterred and has put a lot of suspicion into his approach. He was an entrepreneur-in-residence during Upfront Ventures where he frequently sat in on startup pitches and schooled firsthand about what worked and what didn’t. He also did this so that intensity partners would know that he’s committed and is not only another luminary with a side plan with his name attached. Convoz is a transparent priority.
Above all, a Houston local pronounced that he wants to send a summary to others from a identical upbringing that they have some-more options for a successful life than being a swat star or a basketball player. “I wish to change a narrative.”
