Some people in this world just have a knack for knowing how to invest and be successful. Christopher Burch is one of those people. From a modest upbringing in Pennsylvania, he always looked up to his father. His dad made him work construction at the age of 13, and from then on, Christopher knew what it meant to make money.
Christopher attended Ithaca College, and while he was performing his studies he was also doing a little work on the side as an entrepreneur. He had several small business in his early years, such as running a hot dog stand for students. Eventually, he and his brother invested $2,000 in a business that they named Eagle’s Eye, which bought sweaters and sold them at a very large profit to students and community members. This business spread like a wildfire, and with his knowledge of how the consumer’s mind works and his earlier entrepreneurial experience, Christopher and his brother were able to expand the company to $140 million in sales by the end of the decade. Eagle’s Eye was soon sold for $165 million, giving Christopher the capital he needed to start the next phase of his career.
Christopher Burch is now the CEO and founder of Burch Creative Capital. He has used his entrepreneurial spirit and his love of investing to fund some of the largest brands and most lucrative businesses around today. He is heavily involved in the real estate markets around the globe, with luxury hotels being his favored investment. He is also invested in a new company called Cocoon9, which creates luxury prefabricated homes with space-saving floor plans. He is also heavily invested in apparel, taking on brands like TRADEMARK and C. Wonder, an apparel, accessories, and home décor company. He funded ED by Ellen DeGeneres as well, a successful apparel line by the famed TV host.
Christopher goes through his life thinking about the finer things. He does not want to waste his time and money on something that has been a thousand times before. He is a fan of finding those diamonds in the rough and then nursing them to grow and expand several times over. He wants his investments to be creative and disruptive. He wants them to make people turn their heads and wonder why something like that has never been done before. This is what has made Christopher Burch one of the most successful entrepreneurs and investors in the world.
