Our venture team builds and invests in companies within disruptive and emerging markets. Our investment group operates primarily as an equity partner and facilitator. We generally work with privately held companies in the growth and expansion stage or will bring our team in on partnerships developments with select entrepreneurs. Some of our investments were developed as new joint ventures, resulting in improved operations and additional revenue for our partners, others we have launched as a collaborative effort.
Bristol & Bates is also an venture/equity partner and builder in high growth organizations – we are heavily invested in technology, e-commerce, entertainment, and high-growth disruptive sectors including alternative medicine.

A hands-on approach to partnerships and joint ventures
As a partner we focus on helping your business grow. What that means is we seek to improve and build upon what you’ve created, by bringing in fresh ideas and concepts.
Our strategies have taken new brands to market and also helped reshape and define target customer markets. In most cases when we engage a new partner or invest in a company, we push to be a brand leader through targeted customer acquisitions.
Traditional investors usually seek an exit, we seek to stay in our investments and companies and build for the long-term. As a partner, we bring a seasoned team of specialists who can complement your strengths, allowing you to focus on what you do best – and still to grow.
