CHRIS S. BARTON
As a technology entrepreneur and investor for the past three decades, I have spent the majority of my adult life carefully managing assets and creating increased value for my family, friends and employees alike. Since 1992, I have founded and sold six businesses in technology and real estate. In 2021, I sold my primary business, a global telecommunications company, to a multi-billion dollar private equity firm.
In pursuit of my passion for skiing and the beauty of the mountains, I decided to leave South Florida after 30 years and spend more time in Colorado. To arrive with a completely fresh perspective for the next new challenge, I sold my holdings in Florida to focus exclusively on Barton VC to build a world-class portfolio of equities, alternative investments and luxury real estate.
Since 2003, my active and passive investing efforts have yielded
an IRR of 22.7% across all invested capital.
At Barton VC, we follow a disciplined investment thesis across our select venture opportunities and other traditional and alternative investments.
