Ryan Caldbeck

Formal First Name

Ryan Caldbeck is the Co-founder and Chairman of CircleUp, a fintech company providing an investment platform powered by technology. Ryan is on a mission to help entrepreneurs thrive by harnessing the power of data to provide capital and resources to emerging consumer brands. He co-founded CircleUp after years as an investor with consumer product and retail-focused private equity firms TSG Consumer Partners and Encore Consumer Capital. After being exposed to the inefficiency of private investing for emerging consumer companies, he saw an opportunity to use technology to solve that problem. His experience in private equity exposed him to many great consumer and retail businesses that were too small to obtain funding available to these small and promising companies through CircleUp. Ryan is also an angel investor in several high-growth technology companies, and is a frequent contributor to Forbes and The Huffington Post.
