Founded in 2015 by Rohan Oza, Clayton Christopher, and Brett Thomas, CAVU Venture Partners is a consumer-focused investment firm founded by operators to partner with operators in building high-growth and disruptive businesses. We are partners and operators first, investors second. At CAVU, we aspire to create the best possible conditions for companies to reach their fullest potential and for entrepreneurs to achieve their dreams. We believe that with the right team, culture, product, strategy and capital…anything is possible. Our deep industry experience and stellar track record as founders and brand builders in the consumer products world transcends the boardroom. We invest in passionate entrepreneurs with big ideas that make the world a better place. There is no more authentic experience than entrepreneurs partnering with a team that has been in the trenches and experienced first-hand the challenges that come with growing a consumer brand. Through our original operator-investing model, we can assist and support passionate entrepreneurs in areas that include new product development, top-tier CPG recruiting, channel & distribution strategy, celebrity partnerships, and marketing strategy. With offices in New York, Austin, and Los Angeles, our focus is on better-for-you branded consumer products companies with a concentration in Food and Beverage. Other areas of focus include Pet, Personal Care & Beauty, Apparel, Retail and Household Products. With total flexibility in stage and structure, investment range from $1mm - $30mm+, CAVU can tailor investment solutions requiring a thoughtful approach, deep sector knowledge and a clear understanding of the company’s and other shareholders’ needs.
