Ryan Howsam has taken on a more significant stake in Delivering Happiness Limited, the company behind eco-friendly packaging brand Garçon Wines. After this most recent investment round, Ryan is now a person of significant control in the business alongside Santiago Navarro, CEO.
About Garçon Wines
In 2017, Garçon Wines, an early stage company with a vision to contribute to a lower carbon future in the wine industry, won business TV show ‘Pop Up Start Up’. This caught the attention of entrepreneur and mentor Ryan Howsam who took a calculated bet and provided seed funding.
Since this time, Ryan’s input has taken the business on a journey, pivoting away from a consumer facing subscription product to a more profitable B2B model. Over the past few years, the company has enjoyed significant growth and boasts many awards and accolades. Shortly to expand their offering further, the business will be launching a new, dedicated climate-tech packaging business line, Packamama.
A Successful Partnership- Santiago Navarro and Ryan Howsam
Ryan Howsam has remained a supporter of the company since his original investment in 2017, and has led on all funding rounds to date, including a successful round in April 2021 where the company raised USD 1 million.
The company’s CEO and co-founder, Santiago Navarro, commented on Ryan’s contribution to their success: “Building a business which introduces step-change innovation to a traditional industry and is just starting to grow when a once-in-a-century global pandemic hits is incredibly tough. Benefiting from Ryan’s advice and investment has been fundamental to us getting to where we are and achieving much of what we have. He’s instrumental.”
