SWS Ventures

SWS Ventures is the investing arm of Style with Substance.  We invest in innovative businesses that help reduce the environmental impact of the textile, apparel and lifestyle industry. 

We believe in the investment of both the entrepreneur and the product/ service “I see it as 50/50, the product will likely transition but the people…they are the consistent factor. After focusing in the Sustainable Fashion sector since 2015, I have met many entrepreneurs and gravitate towards those that demonstrate both drive and the determination to build a business while making a difference. They have an openness to evolve, have the willingness to collaborate, and the passion to drive change in this industry.”

If you are looking to invest in this sector, please let’s connect and work together.
