Seaside works hand-in-hand with our founders, imparting our knowledge and operational assistance to help our portfolio companies bridge the gap between an idea and a go-to-market-ready product or service.
Partners Harrison Valner and Ryan Roddy provide their portfolio companies with an unfair advantage to succeed in the food & beverage, outdoors, and health & wellness spaces through their combined entrepreneurial expertise and deep networks between angel investors, venture capital funds, thought leaders, influencers, operators, PR firms, branding agencies, & much more.
Seaside works daily with its founders alongside its network of designers, developers, logistic experts, PR agencies, software professionals, & more to help launch each pre-venture portfolio company.
Our entrepreneurs will operate autonomously, but Seaside is on call to step in and advise on all unanswered questions. Seaside has a proprietary network of advisors and industry experts for founders to tap into, saving them equity and time.
Partners Harrison Valner and Ryan Roddy co-founded Kyoku, the leading superfood-based nutrition brand for endurance athletes.
Kyoku was acquired by The Feed, the largest online marketplace for endurance sports nutrition, as part of their mission to start aggregating brands in the space.
Harrison Valner launched Seaside Ventures. Shortly after its inception, Ryan Roddy decided to partner and bring the dynamic duo back together to help run Seaside!
We believe in redesigning categories, not just improving the current solution.
We view ourselves equally accountable as our founding teams for the success or failure of each portfolio company.
We apply unwavering dedication and commitment in helping each portfolio company achieve its goals.
Seaside goes beyond venture capital, pulling in our partnership and extended network to collaborate with our founders.
We roll our sleeves up on a daily basis, working with our founders to solve problems big and small.
While it’s never too early for Seaside to get involved, it’s sometimes too late. We become involved with our portfolio companies on the ground floor and work tirelessly with them to build companies that will transform the world.
