By cutting out the middle man and releasing high-quality products at super low price points, GREATS – led by founders Ryan Babenzien and Jon Buscemi – has seen major success in only a year’s time, selling out of virtually every style it has offered. Now it looks like the goods will keep on coming as GREATS has secured a $1.5 million USD investment from Resolute Ventures – a group that includes High Peaks Venture Partners, Mark Gerson of the Gerson Lehrman Group, New England Patriots defensive back Adrian Wilson, and more. The investment follows last year’s $500,000 USD angel round and should allow the brand refresh its inventory, expand its team, and increase its marketing efforts.
