Teton Equity Partners originated from a desire to invest our own capital in leading internet platforms and emerging national brands that empower people and enrich communities. By aggregating investors into a single company fund, we have created an opportunity for ourselves and our partners to access an investment that would not typically be available to individual investors.
We are not a typical VC fund. By structuring each fund around a single target company, each investor can analyze the precise risks and opportunities associated with the investment. Without multiple portfolio companies to identify, source and manage, we’re able to structure our funds with no management fees. Our goal and ultimate reward is precisely aligned with our partners – we only benefit as and when our partners achieve a successful return on investment.
Focusing on a single company also allows us to invest in multiple financing rounds within the same company. Our investors can continue to participate in the company’s growth at varying points in the company’s evolution.
Teton Partners has sponsored four rounds of investments in Blinker totaling $8.1 million, and sourced another $7 million in capital funding. Collectively, we are one of Blinker’s largest investors. Managing Partner, Richard King, serves on Blinker’s board of directors.
We launched Teton Wellness Partners in 2019 to complete CANVIVA’s $1 million Seed Round and lead its $5 million Series A. Founded by 30-year marketing veterans in the consumer packaged goods industry who’ve launched over 250-products for Nestle, PepsiCo, McDonalds, Cargill, Pillsbury, and General Foods – CANVIVA plans to be America’s most trusted and recognized CBD brand in thousands of national retail stores.
