    Strand Equity Partners 'SEP' is a growth equity fund focused on making investments in emerging and dynamic consumer brands. Strand is the private capital division of Schwartz Capital Group (see profile), the Family Office of Ted Schwartz. One of SEP's key tenets is the ability to add value and be flexible when structuring its investment with founders and management. SEP has had great success aligning with founders and management teams in non-control positions. SEP invests in companies after the proof of concept stage but before they have scaled. Typically this translates to $2-$10M of revenues.
