ABOUT US

Suttona Capital is One of One – the only female-led and female-focused growth equity investors backing consumer brands. 

 

We invest in high-growth companies with market leadership potential and ESG-friendly business practices. We target consumer-facing companies that we believe will benefit from financial sponsorship by a female-focused fund.

 

Female founders and executives want more women investors — not just on their cap tables, but as active and engaged strategic partners. Suttona provides growth-stage funding and true partnership to support female leaders. 

 

Suttona builds upon the investment portfolio of Springboard Growth Capital (“SGC”), which was co-founded by Ms. Wildstein and Kay Koplovitz in 2016. 

STRATEGY

STRATEGY

We collaborate closely with our management team partners as we seek to build value and generate attractive returns.  We focus on the consumer sector, supporting companies that we believe will benefit from financial sponsorship by a female-focused fund. Suttona leverages deep category expertise and a successful investment track-record. Our portfolio companies access our extensive network of female leaders, including to diversify their boards and management teams.

FLEXIBLE
STRUCTURE

  • Our fundless model creates a specific fund (or special purpose vehicle) for each portfolio company, sized to the distinct needs of each portfolio company, lead or co-lead growth financings of $25M+

  • The model affords us the flexibility to size our investment according to the needs of the individual portfolio company

ADDING
VALUE
