Get the financial support you need to create demand for your product through relationships with empathetic investors that understand the food space.
Paying for raw materials, investing in people, processes and retail trade programs puts pressure on your cash flow and often requires significant funding. Our “home office” investment team offers select brands both debt and equity financing along with strategic advice.
As fellow food entrepreneurs, we are actively engaged in the business of selling and marketing plant-based food and beverages, and therefore understand the people, processes and capital needed for your brand to scale up.
Unlike other food accelerators or Venture Capital funds, we don’t force cross-promoted marketing services on your brand, seek majority control of your business, or aggressively structure deals to transfer our risk onto you.
We invest in brands we believe in for the long haul, so we can both be on the same page with customers, products and desire to succeed.
