Holland & Hart represented CircleUp Growth Partners, an early-stage consumer investment fund with a data-driven, scalable approach to investing in visionary entrepreneurs, as lead investor in its $4 million Series A financing round of Ohza, one of the fastest-growing ready-to-drink cocktail companies in the industry. The round included participation from Branch Venture Group, Ruttenberg Gordon Investments, Riverside Ventures, and other individual investors.
The investment will allow Ohza to support its newly inked partnerships with some of the largest distributors in the country, as well as expand their direct-to-consumer efforts.
The Holland & Hart transactional team was led by corporate partner Chuck Cotter, with assistance from Lauren Schoeffler.
