Jeff Vinik Invests in Another Tech Startup Focused on Health and Wellness
TAMPA — Tampa Bay Lightning owner Jeff Vinik has made a series of investments in companies focused on health, wellness and technology in industries ranging from construction to medicine, and from fitness to radiation protection.
He’s at it again. This time it’s skin care and clothing, and it’s one of his bigger personal investments.
Vinik is the lead investor in a $30 million round of fundraising for Silk Inc., a Boston-based company with a line of skin care products, Silk Therapeutics, made with non-synthetic chemicals and minimal ingredients. You can find it at Harrods in London.
The company also says it is poised to expand into the textile industry with bio-friendly replacements for petrochemical treatments and coatings used on fabrics.
