Private equity funds and venture capital firms have invested in several of the vendor groups written about in this report, but with VantagePoint Venture Partners, Klipsch Audio Inc. possesses a high-powered minority shareholder with vast information resources, and the companies work together closely to execute a mutually agreed-upon strategy.  VantagePoint first began pursuing an investment strategy for the digital media market in 2002.
