Venture dreamer
C2 Theme:
Late-night talk radio taught a young Chris Burch about people's hopes and dreams; multi-million-dollar investments taught him the value of dreaming big in business. From selling sweaters door-to-door in college to co-founding award-winning lifestyle label Tory Burch, Chris has always backed creative ventures unafraid of planting one foot in the future. As an investor and entrepreneur, and now founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, he's played a part in the rise of more than 50 companies. Ever-fascinated by consumers' decisions, he invested in the Internet before it went high speed, mobile online retail on the cusp of 3G, and virtual reality in storefront spaces – now he's backing ED by Ellen DeGeneres, the luxe tiny homes of Cocoon9, the chic Nihiwatu resort, office retailer Poppin, TRADEMARK sportswear and dozens more inventive brands.
“If we learn to hear we will learn to feel, and feeling can take us to many creative places in business and in life.”
