Note from Wild Ventures

Wild Ventures is an angel fund of health & wellness influencers. We invest in consumer health products & tech – and market to millions.

We believe that the best way to combat chronic health conditions is lifestyle – not pills and surgery – so we look for companies that empower people to lead healthier lives.

When we find a product we love and believe in – made by founders who are true believers – we can reach people who care about healthy living. A lot of them.

Dealflow

We intend to do 10-15 deals over the next couple years and will be syndicating all of them on AngelList. Wild Ventures does not do a deal unless 1) a critical mass of our health & wellness influencers are willing to support and promote the company; 2) we can secure a large enough allocation to make it worth our time and effort.

Team

Wild Ventures is led by John Durant, who's been an advisor to 9 startups over 3+ years. John is the NYT bestselling author of "The Paleo Manifesto" and co-author of "Spartan Fit!" with Joe De Sena, founder of Spartan Race. He's been profiled in the New York Times, interviewed on The Colbert Report, and has been rated one of The 100 Most Influential People in Health & Fitness.
