Healthy INSIDER Podcast 12: 2015 Capital Transactions Update

Since its founding in 2007, Nutrition Capital Network has hosted meetings in which nutrition and wellness companies with high growth potential connect with investors. NCN’s team of natural products industry veterans and experienced investment professionals not only fosters connections, but also advises and mentors companies participating in its events.

From more than 2,300 applicants, 475 companies have presented at 27 NCN Investor meetings in the United States and Europe over the years, and roughly 56 percent of presenters have completed some sort of transaction (through mid-2015).

Ahead of the upcoming NCN Investor meetings at Vitafoods Europe and SupplySide West, INSIDER Managing Editor Steve Myers linked up with NCN Co-Founder, CEO and Principal Grant Ferrier to discuss his team’s analysis of 2015 capital investment data, including:

  • Trends in equity financings and mergers& acquisitions, including a record number of transactions
  • How natural products companies are becoming more sophisticated and prepared in search of capital
  • What the near future may bring in terms of capital investment in natural products companies and brands.
