Livio Bisterzo made the announcement that a minority equity investment has been made by Leonardo DiCaprio. Livio Bisterzo stated how much excitement he was feeling that both Leonardo DiCaprio and Strand Equity Partners have become a part of the HIPPEAS family.
The brand continues to show consistent growth in the United Kingdom and the United States. Mr. Livio Bisterzo believes his new partners are an excellent fit with the values and vision of the company and is looking forward to the journey they will take together.
According to Seth Rodsky, the co-founder of Strand Equity Partners, HIPPEAS is a brand with an extremely high growth potential. He is delighted with the traction the brand has seen in a short time period and believes this is due to the amazing flavor and nutritional content. He is looking forward to working with both Livio Bisterzo and the incredible team at HIPPEAS. Leonardo DiCaprio is an environmental activist and has additionally invested in a brand of seafood called Love in the Wild.
Livio Bisterzo became an Entrepreneur while he was still attending college. He worked in Marketing, events, and the youth culture. He has created challenges for himself in numerous industries resulting in the creation of some fantastic brands. At other times he admits he failed spectacularly.
