You’ve started up. You’ve turned your vision into reality. Chances are good that your next critical to-do is finding yourself a committed partner who can provide an influx of funds to help you achieve your goals. But why stop at money? Funding’s important, of course, but what if you could also get sage and strategic advice based on a collective 100 years in the business arena, along with marketing and branding services, mentorship, and much more? Yes? Then, you’re not just looking for an investor with deep pockets, you should be looking for the best, the brightest, the most experienced and expert.
Welcome to WE. Wasson Enterprise is a single-family investment firm created to help entrepreneurs by connecting, mentoring, marketing, and commercializing their dreams into sustainable businesses. We do this through what we are calling our “Midwest Approach”: We roll up our sleeves and get right down to work to help entrepreneurs succeed. WE is not just a money source. WE is a business resource—with the tools to help young businesses soar. WE is particularly interested in investing in three business areas: health tech, innovative customer and shopping solutions, and clean and efficient energy innovation. Our team has deep domain knowledge in all three sectors, and we’re ready to use our expertise to benefit your company.
You’re passionate and driven—so are we. Wasson Enterprise isn’t just an assortment of multifaceted people with special skills. You can get that anywhere. We’re all that, of course, but more important—and to your advantage—we’re a close-knit, down-to-earth team of family members—some of whom share the same DNA, but all of whom operate under a shared vision, principles and ethics, mindset, and commitment to winning. WE was founded by Greg Wasson—former CEO of Walgreens Boots Alliance—who led Walgreens, a Fortune 32 company and the nation’s largest and most iconic drugstore chain, through an historic transformation that culminated in its merger in 2014 with Europe’s Alliance Boots to form Walgreens Boots Alliance, the first global pharmacy-led health and wellbeing enterprise. That’s an incredible amount of expertise to have on your side, along with that of WE cofounder and Greg’s wife—Kimberly Wasson. A PharmD with long-time retail and clinical pharmacy experience, Kim, also an equestrian, is the owner of her own start-up — Forward Stride Stables.
