Lincoln Park Capital, LLC (“LPC”) was one of our first investors. LPC’s experienced professionals manage a portfolio of investments in public and private entities.  As an institutional investor, we may look to LPC to help provide our portfolio companies with additional resources including high level strategic guidance. They may also co-invest and help support our portfolio companies during later-round financings.

LPC is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, and invests in a wide range of companies and industries emphasizing life sciences, specialty finance, energy and technology. For more information visit www.lpcfunds.com.

Bluestein & Associates (“B&A”) is also an early strategic investor. B&A is a family office headquartered in Chicago, focused on building high-growth food, retail and associated B2B technology ventures through financial investments and value-added expertise. B&A was founded by Bram and Andrew Bluestein, both of whom have extensive consulting and private equity expertise across the consumer and technology sectors.

As an institutional investor, B&A will be a great resource to help portfolio companies with growth strategy to ensure they scale successfully and effectively. They may also co-invest and help support our portfolio companies during later-round financings. For more information visit http://www.bluesteinassociates.com/.
