On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Ethan Rigel, Founder, and Managing Partner at Gore Range Capital.

Located in New York City, New York, USA, Gore Range Capital is focused on investments in early-stage skin health businesses. Their approach is simple: they invest in what they know. Over the course of their respective careers, the Gore Range team has built domain expertise and extensive networks across multiple areas of healthcare. Through Gore Range Capital they are channeling their capabilities to focus on our largest organ and the most visible manifestation of who we are – the skin.

At Gore Range, they blend the hands-on approach of operationally focused private equity with the early-stage guidance needed in venture capital. They were formed in 2015 with the goal of partnering with industry pioneers, working closely with portfolio companies to bring skin health innovations to market. To accomplish this mission, they leverage their team of experienced healthcare investors, leaders, and practitioners to bring strategic, financial, and scientific expertise to their investments.

Ethan has more than 15 years of investing experience and spent most of his time actively working with small businesses with limited resources. During the course of his career, he has invested more than $900 million in companies with a combined enterprise value of greater than $2 billion across dozens of investments. Most of Ethan’s investments have been very hands-on, and he has taken an extensive role in the operations of the business in order to help drive the company’s success.

Ethan has two degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Bachelor of Science in Economics and Bachelor of Science in Management Science) and a Master of Business Administration from the Fuqua School of Business at Duke University.

Ethan shares about the ins and outs of the skin healthcare industry, the opportunities and challenges, and how to thrive in this competitive industry.
