One of the hardest things to do is to sell something to a buyer, so Boyle Ventures does not invest in pre-revenue companies.  Check sizes outside of syndicates are between $25,000 and $75,000.

ABOUT TOM

I started Boyle Ventures in 2016 after early retirement from Coca-Cola.

  

I co-founded one startup – TradeOut.com (1998-2001) a B2B marketplace selling excess

inventory and idle assets. Although we raised $85 million, we ultimately sold the business.

 

The experience and learning motivated me to work with startups. Instead of being a founder again, I became an angel investor where I get to be inspired by and hopefully help

great founders with great ideas.

Obviously, creating profitable, scalable new businesses is inherently risky and incredibly hard.

So, I bring my experience in consumer products' innovation (Coke, Colgate and Heinz) to

improve the odds for success.

 

My focus areas with startups include:

  • A little strategy (where to play)

  • A lot of execution planning (how to win)

  • New business development

  • Profitable business model development with product/market fit

ADVISORY WORK

Boyle Ventures occasionally provides advisory work for companies, focused on business conceptualization, sales strategy, commercial operations and marketing.  We will – however – focus most of our limited advisory work on the companies with whom we have invested.
