Advising + Investing In Consumer Businesses

 

The consumer landscape is evolving faster than ever.  Tina is a hands-on advisor who works with early-stage consumer companies to create strategies, build brands, find partners, and commercialize great ideas.  

Tina believes in the power of diverse teams with curious minds working on hard problems.  She leverages deep expertise in research, strategy, finance, leadership, and development to help entrepreneurs and investors:

  • Identify and evaluate opportunities
  • Understand market trends and consumer behavior
  • Build profitable, sustainable business models
  • Drive defensible competitive advantage

An active early-stage investor, Tina knows how to help companies navigate the fundraising process, evaluate sources and uses of capital, and apply a rigorous analytical lens to key financial decisions.

In a crowded consumer landscape, Tina is laser-focused on separating signal from noise to create unique, profitable, and scale-able solutions.

Tina is one of our most strategic, supportive and value-add investors, hands-down. She is truly a part of our team and family. Volition would not be a success without her insightful counsel, astute consumer perspectives, genius branding advice and all-around contagious enthusiasm.

The fund targets businesses with healthy gross margin potential, passionate customer bases, creative and nimble customer acquisition strategies, and a strong sense of purpose.
