Chris Burch has certain companies he likes to invest in that go beyond the normal kinds of service to doing something new and imaginative. That’s the reason he named his investment company Burch Creative Capital because it seeks to find the most creative entrepreneurs out there and turn their ideas into businesses like none that have ever been seen before (businessinsider.com). Among the companies he’s invested in are Poppin and Voss Water. Poppin is an office space planning company that not only puts together blueprints for offices but also has furniture that they ship and has step-by-step features on how your space can maximize productivity. Voss Water is a natural spring water that comes from Norway that is one of the cleanest rated bottled waters. Even though Burch exited this company just a couple years ago, he was key in getting its initial distribution off the ground in the US. Check inc.com.
Before Chris Burch started building a venture capital portfolio with all of these companies, he was running his own company that started as a small sweater sales gig at Ithaca College, but it eventually became a highly successful retail company that made millions in sales. He named the company Eagle Eye Apparel and was CEO for about 20 years until selling it in 1998. From the mid-1990s until about 2008 Burch started buying into other fashion retailers including his then wife Tory Burch’s line, a brand that’s been shown on fashion TV shows and Oprah Winfrey. Several years after starting Burch Creative Capital, Chris Burch also became a partner and advisor to Ellen DeGeneres in making her household products company successful.
Chris Burch became interested in vacation properties because he had ideas on how to make them attractive for the fortune 500 and upper middle class crowd. He had one of the most luxurious hotel constructions funded in partnership with the Faena Group known as the Faena Hotel + Universe in Argentina in 2004, and nine years later he bought Nihiwatu Resort in Sumba Island and today it is ranked tops in dream destinations. Burch is also a philanthropist who has given to healthcare foundations, private schools and other humanitarian and activist groups.
