SHARK TANK investor to lead funding and will feature Apera on AngelList
Denver, CO -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/17/2014 -- Denver-based Apera LLC, an innovative fitness bag company, has executed a term sheet with Barbara Corcoran Venture Partners. As a leading businesswoman, real estate mogul, investor, and one of ABC's "Sharks" on SHARK TANK, Barbara Corcoran brings tremendous insight and experience to help Apera implement its growth plan.
It is expected that Apera will be syndicated on the AngelList platform, where accredited investors will be able to participate in the offering for as little as a $1,000 investment. Additional details about the offering will be shared in the coming weeks.
Corcoran states, "Apera's experienced management team identified a market that did not exist and now owns it. I see this investment opportunity as one that is smart and sound." She loves Apera's products because "they understand what a consumer wants from their fitness gear, but cannot find anywhere else."
In less than two years of operation, Apera has achieved significant distribution with more than 200 retail and e-commerce locations nationwide – including Nordstrom, Equinox, and Fit2Run. Apera has also garnered significant brand recognition and product sales by participating in fitness expos across the county, supporting events such as Rock 'n' Roll Marathons, the Boston and Miami Marathons, runDisney, and SHAPE Diva Dash.
This investment partnership with Barbara Corcoran is a result of Apera's ongoing relationship with Alchemy Global, an investment banking and advisory services firm backed by investors such as Greg Norman, Jim Courier, and Boris Becker. Focused specifically on the Sports and Entertainment markets, Alchemy matches accredited investors with emerging growth companies such as Apera. Alchemy brings a powerful blend of experienced brand and company builders along with managerial, financial, and capital markets expertise.
