Verlinvest’s CEO, Roberto Italia, Discusses Mission-Led Brands and Growth Investing Money Maze Podcast

    • Investing

Some of tomorrow’s large companies are today’s emerging ones, and in this miniseries we explore the world of venture capital and look at a handful of organisations that operate at a lower level in terms of size, but who are providing critical capital to early and growth-stage companies.

In episode 2 of the series, we’re pleased to feature Roberto Italia, CEO of the global, evergreen investment company, Verlinvest. Verlinvest’s portfolio brands include Oatly, Pedego, Purplle.com, Vita Coco, Chewy.com and Tony’s Chocolonely to name a few, and is backed by the families behind AB InBev (the Belgium-based brewing multinational).

The discussion covers developing the Oatly brand, investment holding periods, potential exits, consumers’ changing appetites, and the challenges around supply chain re-ordering.

Roberto also discusses the headwinds of dealing with inflation, the key takeaways from past investments and the exciting landscape ahead.
