Dutchess Capital is the manager for several global investment funds that provide capital to start-up, pre-IPO and publicly-traded companies worldwide. Since 1996, Dutchess has made over 400 investments globally, with a total transaction value exceeding $2 billion. The size and scope of our investments have ranged from initial seed capital for start-ups to $25 million dollars for more established emerging growth companies. Through our investments, we aim to build strategic partnerships that foster growth, drive profitability and create shareholder value.
Since 2012, Dutchess has been an activist, principal investor within the legalized cannabis sector. The investments have included companies which are legally engaged in the production, distribution or delivery of cannabis (colloquially known as “touching the plant”), and in ancillary businesses which support the industry. The size and scope of our legalized cannabis investments are dependent upon the target company’s size, growth rate, opportunities and the associated risk.
