Our Interest

Branch Venture Group is a Boston-based investment network that provides funding and advice to early-stage food companies. We focus on investments in the food and beverage CPG, foodtech, and agtech spaces. Primary sector focuses include food and beverage products, digital content and media, e-commerce and marketplace platforms, direct to consumer, agriculture technology, industry robotics, restaurant technology, and related life sciences. 

Branch Venture Group provides a number of opportunities and activities for our angel network members. We host meetings where entrepreneurs are invited to pitch their business plans and products. We organize educational opportunities for our members to learn more about angel investing and topic-focused dinners and mixers to connect with our greater network of industry leaders. Branch Venture Group is also invited to all Branchfood events. As a group, we aspire to lead the early stage investment activity in food in New England.

Our angel network consists of individual investors interested in achieving superior returns by financing privately held companies at an early stage of development. We seek a diverse, active member base from a variety of backgrounds and professions but with a common interest in high-growth food related businesses. Branch Venture Group is also connected to early-adopters and potential customers, service providers, partners and follow-on sources of financing.

Our primary focus is investing in entrepreneurs raising under $1M with the capacity to syndicate larger opportunities through other networks and venture firms. Our members sit on company boards, help recruit new members, develop strategic partners, refine product and go-to-market strategies, and raise subsequent rounds of funding.
