Rustic Canyon / Fontis Partners

Originally formed in 2006 as Rustic Canyon / Fontis Partners, an investment firm targeting growth stage companies, RC/ Fontis targeted companies in niche and underserved markets, with a focus in the natural food and beverage and personal care segments, as well as B2B services companies. RC/Fontis is nearly wound down, with only one portfolio company remaining. Although the fund is no longer making investments, on a select basis, we have individually made investments in a small number of early stage companies.
