Studio Management is a data-driven investment firm with focus areas in long-short equity in public markets, early to mid stage VC and internal incubation of startup ideas.
Studio is co-founded by Johnny Hwin, an artist, entrepreneur, and investor/advisor previously featured in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and SPIN Magazine. He most recently cofounded Thistle—a subscription-based health foods delivery company—an early incubated company within Studio Management, and is the singer-songwriter/producer of Cathedrals, an indie-electronic duo The New York Times describes as “R&B with 1980s rock swagger,” currently featured in season 1 of Amazon Prime’s new series “Jack Ryan”.
He was formerly co-founder and CEO of damntheradio, a Facebook marketing platform that powered promotional campaigns for artists such as Lady Gaga and The Black Keys, and brands such as Wrangler Jeans and Gatorade. damntheradio was acquired in January 2011 by email marketing startup FanBridge (investors include SoftTech VC, Lowercase Capital, 500 Startups, First Round Capital, Founder Collective, et al)—6 months after launch. In the spring of 2011 post-acquisition, he opened for Moby at SXSW, playing bass in the live outfit of electronic dream-pop artist Blackbird Blackbird.
Prior to damntheradio, he studied social psychology and technology entrepreneurship at Stanford University, where he launched his first company from the Stanford Facebook App Class (profiled in the New York Times), a viral quiz platform that grew to 15M users and was sold in 2009 to SpeedDate (and later acquired by Match.com).
