Christopher Burch Picks Gifts Like Investments

Most people don’t think of businesspeople and investors as fabulous givers of gifts. That seems more like a skill traditionally nourished by women because it’s a social act. Of course, businesspeople are social. They must network and nourish their relationships with co-workers, superiors, suppliers and clients to succeed. And that does sometime involve giving gifts. But few people would think that qualifies businesspeople, especially venture capitalists, as gifted regarding gifts,

A Master Of His Own Craft

However, Christopher Burch is not a typical businessman or venture capital. He sees investing in businesses as a creative process, requiring vision as well as formal analysis and crunching of the financial numbers. That’s so important to him, he named his business Burch Creative Capital. To Burch, investing in start-up businesses and helping them to grow and achieve their goals is a form of creativity, just like writing novels or painting pictures. By now, he is a maestro at his craft. In his 40 years at the profession, Chris has helped over 50 companies grow and succeed. And he delights in surprising both his family and his business contacts with gifts that surprise them, especially ones they would never buy for themselves.  For more of his creative vision and output, check

In Release Fact, he tells of the six gifts he gives now. They include a jacket from Barbour Gisbume, Fatty Sundays or Pretzables chocolates or candies, a Jaclean Zero-Gravity Massage Chair, a Snowe Home Candle Set, a Trademark Cooper Cage Tote or a donation to a charity in the name of the recipient. Cage Totes are bags made of bands of leather. The bottom is solid, but the sides are vertical and horizontal strips of leather with openings, so it looks like a cage, not a solid bag.
