Session Information

Ryan founded CircleUp after nearly seven years of investing experience in consumer product and retail-focused private equity. His experience in private equity exposed him to many great consumer and retail businesses that were too small to obtain funding through the customary private equity channels. Inspired by these often-overlooked opportunities, he founded CircleUp to make funding available to promising companies.

Prior to founding CircleUp, Ryan worked at TSG Consumer Partners and Encore Consumer Capital, and served on the board of Zuke’s, The Isopure Company and Philly Swirl.

Ryan has been recognized as a “Titan of Retail” by Bloomberg and “40 Under 40” by both M&A Advisors and the San Francisco Business Times.  Ryan holds an MBA from Stanford and a dual BA from Duke.
