Midnight Venture Partners Launches New Model for CPG Investment All-Star Roster Redefines Value-Add Capital


"Our team is what will differentiate us in the market. We have assembled a talented cast of leaders with unique experiences and skill-sets that will all be incredible resources for future brand partners," said Midnight VP Co-Founder Ryan Springer.


Midnight VP will pair the CPG expertise of The Touch Agency, a retail sales and marketing powerhouse that has played a role in building some of the most successful brands in the CPG industry, with Red Krypton, investors in and advisors to high-growth, digital-first Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) companies.  Midnight VP has also partnered with CapStream Group, an Austin-based group of entrepreneurs and finance professionals focused on advising business owners.

Additional Midnight VP strategic advisors include Ken Meyer, former EVP of Whole Foods, and Brian Goldberg, former CFO of Amplify Snack Brands.

Headquartered in Austin, TX, Midnight VP is strategically aligned with investment partners—family offices, consumer-focused funds, and others —eager to capitalize on deal flow consisting of tomorrow's breakout brands. Opportunities will most often be in early funding rounds where Midnight VP feels they have the ability to add the most value. The Midnight VP model has been crafted with total flexibility at its core in an effort to ensure deal structures benefit brand partners and maximize opportunity for mutual success.
