Drake Invests in San Francisco Startup's New App

    Hip-hop star Drake has invested in Omni, a concierge and storage service app that aims to help users catalog their personal possessions.

    According to the startup's co-founder, it may be one of the music star's premiere forays into the world of tech.

    "Being one of Drake's first tech investments and doing deep dives on the crossover between tech and music from an end user perspective. . . is wild," co-founder and CEO Thomas McLeod posted on Instagram, a caption for a picture with McLeod, Drake and Omni's "latest investors."

    Omni charges between 25 cents and $2 per month for each item you allow the service to pick up, photograph, catalog and store, with the option to have any item delivered back to the customer on demand.

    The app's potential for storing large music archives must not have eluded its most famous new investor.

    Other notable investors in Omni include Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and former Golden State Warriors power forward David Lee.
