Investing in Edifying and High-Loyalty Recreation Businesses
In 2022, Daryle Doden challenged Jeremy Gayed (then AE’s Chief Legal Officer) to develop a platform bringing Christ to the recreation marketplace.
Jeremy developed an investment profile seeking business-to-consumer distribution and supportive manufacturing businesses operating in edifying and high-loyalty recreation verticals, e.g., shooting and outdoor sports, cycling, hiking, backyard and home recreation, and esports.
By pairing the impact potential of customer-facing retail and distribution with the financial potential of supportive manufacturing, and a macro-focus on “high-loyalty” areas of recreation, Rooted Pursuits investments could enjoy high levels of access and influence and achieve three returns impact.
From this challenge, AE’s newest affiliate, Rooted Pursuits, was born.
