If having a fitness chain, sports franchises and a youth fashion brand under his belt weren't enough, newly appointed Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli may have just hinted at another business venture–an audio equipment company, Muve Acoustics–on Twitter.
Over the weekend, he tweeted the following:
That tweet was followed by another one:
According to Muve Acoustics' official page, the firm is essentially an audio solution company selling an array of equipment including headphones, earphones and Bluetooth speakers.
In the past, it has been reported that Virat has gifted Muve Acoustic headphones to several other Royal Challenger teammates, including AB de Villiers, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mandeep Singh, Sarfaraz Khan, during the 2016 edition of the Indian Premier League.
But that is not all to this powerhouse's business imprint. It is reported that Virat currently endorses 17 brands.
Last Tuesday, he reportedly launched mobile games Stick Cricket and Virat Super Cricket with Mumbai-based games publisher Nazara Technologies, expected to go live in February and March respectively.
Further, over the past three years, Virat has ventured into six diverse businesses. In the past, Virat’s friend and manager Bunty Sajdeh, Founder and CEO, Cornerstone Sport and Entertainment, had mentioned that they were exploring 8-10 business ideas, of which 2-3 will work out for investments.
In a recent telephonic interview, Virat had told LiveMint,
“Investments in startups and trying to get into the business side of things also really excites me and it pushes me to learn more about it, so I can be actively involved in more projects in the future. And that’s one thing I’m learning on a daily basis and something I will continue after I’m done with the game as well.”
With a varying portfolio, Virat is said to invest in businesses he understands. Following are the seven businesses that he has invested in over the years:
With already so much in place there might be just more in line for this cricketer on his way to becoming an inspiring icon in his own right.
