    Gastronome Ventures focuses on 'high-touch' food and beverage opportunities that fall outside the target of traditional investment models. Early stage specialty food companies are in a highly inefficient market for funding - falling in the gap between venture and growth equity. Gastronome Ventures makes seed and series A investments in companies generating revenues of $100K to $5M.
