Two well-known players in food financing – former Silverwood Partners MDs Michael Burgmaier and Nick McCoy - have started a new boutique investment bank focused on the consumer products industry called Whipstitch Capital. 

McCoy and Burgmaier - who brokered 40+ deals over the past six years with a series of high-profile brands from Blake's All Natural Foods to KeVita, Brad's Raw Foods, and Essentia Water – will continue to work with innovative food, beverage, dietary supplements, retail and premium CPG businesses, particularly in the areas of healthy, active, and sustainable living, said Burgmaier.

"We are about the true innovators who fight the good fight, take risks, and change how consumers think about the products and services they buy."

He added "Why us? We're tight with the right acquirers and investors; we know how to talk with them about the best, on-trend consumer products brands. We love consumer product innovation and related retail. It's what's in our fridge, on our feet, part of our daily routines and interwoven in our lives."

Whipstitch Capital​ focuses solely focused on consumer sector sell-side and buy-side M&A and private placements.
