JUMP CONCLUSION

Red Swan Ventures focuses on early-stage companies, particularly those at the intersection of technology and financial services, with a notable presence in New York and California. Their investments span diverse sectors, emphasizing financial services, fintech, and beauty. Active participants in funding rounds, they prioritize startups leveraging technology to disrupt traditional industries, and both Birchbox and Harry’s are DTC disrupting traditional beauty channels.

Beauty Funder Fit indicates avoid but we recommend you target this venture as one of the founders is a “Birchbox” alum and most of the early-stage beauty brands rely heavily on DTC, and thus could disrupt the traditional channels
