Get to know OSV

O’Shaughnessy Ventures is the passion project of Jim O’Shaughnessy, a pioneer in the field of quantitative investing and founder of O'Shaughnessy Asset Management.

OSV combines Jim’s deeply rooted interest in all things art, science, investing and tech with his long-held desire to establish positive sum scenarios designed to help promising creators and their inspiring ideas succeed, regardless of age, location, job history or level of education.

What we stand for

NO ONE WINS ALONE. EVERYONE WINS TOGETHER.

We only seek out win-win opportunities where everyone has a vested interest from the jump and will ultimately share in the spoils and successes.

WE ARE QUANT-MINDED AND CREATIVE-HEARTED.

We take calculated risks with the end goal of creating something original, inspiring and unexpected.

WE ARE ACTIVE PARTICIPANTS, NOT PASSIVE SPECTATORS.

We provide the data, tools and resources creators need to remain focused on  always keeping their eye on the ball.

ITERATION ALWAYS BEATS STAGNATION.

We thrive on the collective, shared desire to perpetually push towards executing on each stage of an idea’s development, from the initial idea to the finished product.

TALENT, COURAGE AND DESIRE HAVE NO BARRIERS.

We wholeheartedly embrace diversity across each and every one of its beautiful shapes and forms. Because when physical barriers and personal biases are removed, that’s when true innovation really starts to happen.

I started out by helping grow Infinite Loops from an already amazing podcast to hopefully an even better one.

Now doing the same for OSV. As someone who detests corporate titles, I went with the title of “Mr. Meeseeks” as I like the idea of doing what needs to be done, and then getting out of the way.
