Chris Burch has found big brands such as Tory Burch and C. Wonder and is a partner in over 50 companies in which he has invested. He started his entrepreneurial journey at a very young age and used to sell hot dogs and burgers during college football games and selling sweaters in his network. Chris Burch is the founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital, which is a venture capital and investment firm.
At the age of 20, he sold his company Eagle’s Eye that he started with his brother and the experiences he had while running the company helped him in his future business ventures. The money he made was re-invested in other ventures, and it gave birth to brands such as Voss Waters, Poppins, Tory Burch, and more. One of his recent investments is also in the brand by Ellen Degeneres, named Ed.
He also recently opened a five-star hotel on a remote island in Indonesia with hotelier James McBride. The investment he made for the same was around $30 million, and it was used to turn an old hostel into a luxury five-star resort with facilities available that one could just not imagine available on a remote island in mid of nowhere. It is ranked the best hotel in the world by Travel and Leisure, and rightly so.
Chris Burch said that the island and the natural beauty that inhabits there is enough to make the hotel look good, and whatever efforts they made to make the property luxurious just added another dimension to it. He has a private home in the hotel resort too as well. Chris Burch says that finding new opportunities in a competitive global business arena is not difficult, but it does take a keen eye that looks for details, and by all means, he has mastered this art pretty well.
