De Frenza and Jonathan Steingraber.
The film and entertainment world has experienced massive disruption in recent years and competition for content is at an all time high. Companies like Netflix, HBO, Hulu and Amazon are producing more and more original content but competition for subscribers is at an all time high. In order for major networks to attract more subscribers, they need to show they are offering more content then their competition. With the revenues that networks are generating, they have two choices; either pay more taxes or acquire more content for their viewers.
Since networks cannot produce enough of their own original content, they turn to film distribution companies. Film distributors know exactly what genre networks are looking for and they find and secure film rights for the networks. Film distributors negotiate the acquisition of the film rights directly from the film producers themselves. Once the acquisition of the film distribution rights are under contract, the film distributors approach the major networks with a predetermined amount for the network to acquire the licensing rights for a set period of time. This is when Next Generation Investment Group comes in. We provide the funding to acquire the film distribution rights directly from the film producers and funding is only done once a network agrees to a licensing agreement. Each transaction is approximately 6 months.

The Opportunity: The film and entertainment world has experienced massive growth in recent years and demand for content is increasing day by day. Companies like Netflix, HBO, Hulu, YouTube, and Amazon are producing more and more original content but competition for subscribers is at an all time high. In order for major networks to add more value and to attract more subscribers, they need to show they are offering more content than their competition.
Network revenue for most companies are also booming and the choice is very clear; they can choose to pay more taxes on the revenue or they can acquire more film assets which, in turn, provides more content for their viewers and creates a platform that remains relevant in the industry. Next Generation Investment Group seeks to grab this opportunity. We shall focus primarily on the postproduction activities providing sufficient funding to the distribution companies towards securing direct rights of distribution from the producers.
The Target Market: Americans are watching more streaming video than ever — and they now pay an estimated $2 billion each month on subscription-video services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon. A 2018 Digital Media Trends Survey revealed that 55% of U.S. households now subscribe to at least one video-streaming service (up from 10% in 2009). The average streaming-video subscriber pays for three different services — amounting to $2.1 billion per month in revenue.
Overall, about 48% of all U.S. consumers stream TV content at least weekly, versus 37% in 2016. According to experts, the rapid growth of streaming services and high-quality original content has created a significant opportunity to monetize the on-demand environment in 2018. Figures collected over the past years have depicted a continuous growth and development of the industry which predicts a continuous increase for the coming years.
Our Services: Market growths have not only brought benefits and advantages, but have also established new complexities and responsibilities in the industry. In addition to these, new challenges, particularly copyright issues, have also grown to worrying levels. One of the main challenges that has sprout up from the heightened growth is the increase in the complexity of managing the supply chain of the films and content produced. The increase in the demand and revenue has also resulted in a substantial increase in the players in the supply chain. After the production of content by the producer, the distributors then acquire the content for the purposes of distribution to the target market. Distribution companies must turn to private equity for funding due to the time requirement for the capital being accessible.
This is when Next Generation Investment Group comes in. We choose to focus exclusively on postproduction content. When a distribution agreement is in place, a network or streaming service provides a Letter of Intent (LOI), we provide the transactional funding for the film distribution company to secure the distribution rights directly from the film producers. The Letter of Intent would then become a licensing agreement with a network or streaming service. The transaction is approximately 6 months. Transactional funding is a very common practice for businesses that require capital for a short-term basis.
Competitive Edge: Our capital is secured by a promissory note that is issued directly from the distribution company and secured by each film that is involved in the transaction. In the event a network or video streaming service rescinded on the Letter of Intent it would present a reputation challenge and the distribution company would probably reconsider the relationship moving forward. If this does occur, the distribution company has two options. First, they can bring the film to an alternative network or streaming service with an option to license the film. Or option two, they can bundle the film, along with another, and sell the licensing rights for two films together.
Marketing Strategy: Our services will be marketed through our website, through our customer service team, our company, and other methods. One to one interactions with market leaders, social gatherings, public relations meetings etc will also help in reaching out to potential clients. Moreover, social media platforms will also be utilized to extend our outreach.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration I have spent the last 15 years of my professional career with an emphasis on scaling companies. With strong leadership, operations, and business development skills, I have done consulting work in Australia, Canada, and the United States. Within each organization I had very specific goals that were established and executed to produce maximum profitability for business owners and shareholders.
In 2012 with a vision of creating long-term wealth, I began investing personal capital in a variety of asset classes focusing on businesses with strong financials that have included technology companies and asset based real estate transactions that produce an annual return of 15%. I take a very disciplined approach to evaluating asset based lending opportunities.
Next Generation Investment Group was founded with one purpose, “Investing for their Future.” Wealth should not be limited to our generation; it should be created and preserved for our future generations. This mindset assists in the continuation of our legacy. Film distribution funding was introduced to me in 2017 and in the first 12 months I have successfully participated in the acquisition of 15 film distribution projects with a valuation of over 10 million dollars.
