A serial entrepreneur, Jeff has scaled up multiple high growth companies from start-up to successful exit.

Redwood Distilled owns whiskey by the barrel to age and then to sell wholesale to large spirit brands, to white label contract manufacturers, and to craft distillers. Grounded in a “picks and shovels” strategy, Redwood invests in the ongoing growth of the $4b wholesale market and capitalizes on the long term, non-correlated price appreciation of aging bourbon. Wealthlete’s principals provided the initial funding, personally operate the business, and have invested over 10% of total capital.
Siempre Spirits is a distilled spirits business launched in 2017. Siempre’s 100% agave, premium tequila is sold in 10 states and across Canada. Newly signed with the 2nd largest US distributor, they’re poised to accelerate their growth. With distilling roots stretching back four generations, the founders are experienced brand builders who started their careers at top advertising agencies. Wealthlete's principals have already put funds into the company and will invest over 10% of the total capital.
OxeFit is a cutting-edge fitness platform with a “razors and blades” business model. The company couples hardware product sales with subscriptions to medical, nutrition and related content. Founded by a serial CEO with billion dollar exits, the high performing senior team has deep domain expertise and is targeting the professional sports, medical rehab, and consumer fitness markets. Wealthlete's principals have agreed to invest in the Series A-1 preferred stock and will invest over 25% of the total capital.
For decades, we’ve generated capital through disciplined investing across multiple industries and asset classes. We have been first dollar in and intimately involved in the founding of companies. We have advised passionate entrepreneurs on executing their vision. We have invested in Series A rounds both as lead investors or passively, to fund the scaling of products in specific markets. We have sourced and put money to work in later stage private companies through our business networks and personal relationships. And we have invested in traditional income and capital assets like real estate and equities.
In each deal, we have taken a long term approach to compounding capital with a goal of building generational wealth. Wealthlete was formed to provide our friends and partners a vehicle to join us on that journey.
Our commitment is straight-forward:
• Our money goes in first
• Our LPs are true partners, not clients
• We are transparent and direct
• We continually learn and share knowledge
• Disciplined investors; collegial partners
