October 12, 2018, LOS ANGELES – Big Ass® Brands, Inc. announces that it achieved No. 12 ranking as a winner on the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School’s first annual Most Fundable Companies List. Big Ass® Brands, Inc. will be profiled on Entrepreneur.com and will be featured in the November print issue of the magazine.
Big Ass® Brands, Inc. competed against thousands of early-stage U.S. companies with less than $10 million in annual revenue. The top fifteen companies were selected in partnership with The Venture Alliance (TVA) based on their readiness for private investment.
The Most Fundable Companies initiative involved a multi-phase assessment that evaluated several company variables including financial projections, market opportunity, intellectual property and the strength of the management team, all of which were used to produce a fundability score. The Most Fundable Companies initiative is designed to bridge the gap between startups and the capital they need to succeed. Winners of the top 15 companies came from a variety of industries ranging from telecommunications, beverages, blockchain, and construction.
Big Ass® Brands, Inc. President Ray Horwath stated “The Most Fundable Companies initiative was a transformative experience providing us a road map to secure private investment. We are excited that Pepperdine Graziadio Business School is giving entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their business and set them up for success with investors.”
Big Ass® Brands, Inc. has produced a rotating selection of award-winning full-bodied beers and wines that have a large regional following. It has been a dream of Mr. Horwath’s to unify Big Ass® Beers and Big Ass® Wines under a single corporate structure. Big Ass® Brands, Inc. is looking at future growth and will be seeking a location that appeals to people who would like to enjoy a taproom experience.
