Celebrities have been known to try a hand in many business ventures with the hopes of replicating their onscreen success to the business world. Leonardo DiCaprio became the latest celebrity to join a long list of his fellow celebrities in trying a hand in investment after he signed a partnership pact with Green Park Brands in conjunction with Seth Rodsky who owns the Strand Equity Partners. Seth has been working as an advisor and investor for the company, a position he has held delinquently and helped the snack company grow immensely.
The pact between DiCaprio and Strand Equity Partners invested an undisclosed amount of money in Green Park Brands Inc., the parent company of HIPPEAS. Though Livio refused to disclose the specific amount that the two business henchmen had injected into the company, it is estimated that it could be in millions of dollars. The only figure that Livio disclosed was $2.5 million in which the food company had managed to raise.
This is not the first time Leonardo DiCaprio has invested in a food company. Some few years ago, he invested an undisclosed amount of money to the Love in the Wild, a sustainable seafood production brand. As an environmentalist, Leonardo was drawn to Livio company due to the fact that it was offering plant-based snacks to the general public rather than chemically-modified snacks.
