Technology-focused companies in the US pet sector are receiving strong venture capital interest as pet ownership demographics change, according to several industry sources. “The millennial customer is really driving a number of these categories that didn’t exist five years ago,” says William Allen, an investment banker with Auctus Group.
Auctus Group announced that it has acquired Woodville Hall Capital, LLC, which has been renamed Auctus Securities, LLC. The acquisition is an important step in offering investment banking services for new and existing clients that purchase, divest or raise capital for businesses, brands or assets.
Denver’s Renegade Brewing today announced the sale of an undisclosed stake to Silver Fox Partners, a Northeastern family office founded earlier this year by Anne Mulcahy, the former CEO and Chairwoman of the Xerox Corporation. The Auctus Group acted as the advisor to Renegade.
