Chris Burch’s business career has always changed with the times. Whenever he’s determined that one company was successful, he usually exits and sells it and moves onto the next business. At his venture company Burch Creative Capital he helps turn others’ ideas into businesses with specialized brands. But even though Burch may change businesses that he runs, he likes giving gifts to his family and friends that last for years to come. Some fine items that he told blog readers make good gifts are a Barbour Gisbourne jacket for the cold winter months, Pretzables snacks and sweets, a zero-gravity massage chair and other home warming gifts.

Chris Burch didn’t go into business building through the usual corporate channels. He started out as a college student selling sweaters that he’d buy from a factory in Ithaca, NY and sell around his college campus for a $5 profit. Bjtonline.com has more of this story. The business grew larger than Burch expected and by the late 1970s he already owned his own factories and several retail stores for his new Eagle Eye Apparel brand. Burch sold this company after running it for 20 years and then started investing in early tech-based companies with the Internet Capital Group. He owned part of Tory Burch, a fashion brand that his then wife had started, and he sold the shares in 2008 when he launched Burch Creative Capital. Companies that are either currently in the portfolio or were formerly in it include Powermat, C. Wonder, Actua, Voss Water and Poppin.

There are two big 5-star hotel properties that Chris Burch has funded; the Faena Hotel + Universe and Nihiwatu Resort. The Faena Hotel + Universe was a partnership with Argentinian real estate mogul Alan Faena that saw the construction of Buenos Aires’s best vacation hotel in 2004. Burch Creative Capital and Faena remained partners until 2014. Nihiwatu Resort was Chris Burch’s biggest investment when he and James McBride bought the property on the remote Sumba Island in Indonesia. They had a vacation resort built that has scenery you could only imagine in dreams, and Burch also has a grand home there that he travels to and from throughout the year. When he’s not spending time on business, Chris Burch also is involved in philanthropies like supporting the Tilton School and the Rothman Orthopedic Foundation.
