As an entrepreneur and investor, Chris Burch has led a very successful career that has spanned the course of 40 years. Today, as the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Burch Creative Capital, based in New York City, Chris Burch has used his combination of creative ability and sound financial insight to identify a number of potentially disruptive companies and brands, helping to incubate, scale, and support their meteoric rises.
Throughout his career, he has assisted over 50 reputable companies in their climb to prominence. Being that gift-giving is such a central part of Mr. Burch’s process, he recently took to his blog to discuss a number of gift ideas that he is planning on giving to a few of the people that he cares about the most (releasefact.com). In his list, he mentioned a charitable gift to an unnamed party, as well as a Snowe Home Candle Set, candies from Pretzables or Fat Sundays, a Barbour Gisburne jacket, a Trademark Cooper Cage Tote, and a U.S. Jaclean Zero-Gravity Massage Chair.
Due to his yearning for the investment of people who are both creative and passionate, he founded Burch Creative Capital in order to create value from their visions. His personal passions fueled this desire, and since the inception of Burch Creative Capital, he has consistently helped those that he works with, to bring their dreams to fruition. In a recent statement in which he described the mission of Burch Creative Capital, he broke it down as such, “We match ideas with funding to bring extraordinary possibilities to the world.” Currently, Mr. Burch’s company is helping a number of companies that specialize in apparel, home furnishings, retail, and organic foods, to the next level, in effect, increasing their overall visibility and brand value (https://www.inc.com/magazine/201106/chris-burchs-latest-cool-company.html). After learning of the underutilized land, Chris Burch partnered with Alan Faena and Philippe Stark in the acquisition of Nihi Sumba Island, viewing it as an extremely profitable investment. Today it is one of the fastest growing resorts in Argentina, and he recently added Cocoon9 and ED, by Ellen DeGeneres, to the Burch Creative Capital client portfolio.
