The firm plans to make approximately 15-20 beverage investments, with individual investments ranging from $250,000 to $5 million. Alethia will focus on leading and co-leading series seed, A, and B financing rounds.
The Team Behind the Fund
The fund is backed by a team of experienced operators, bankers, current and former C-level executives, and investors. Notable team members include Brian Stolz, Logan Zinser, Bob Frady, and Taylor Foxman. With a track record of multiple exits over three decades and experience in advising Fortune 50-1000 companies, the team is well-equipped to make strategic investments.
