Valor is an extension of our team. They had deep industry knowledge and a thesis before they met us. The conviction they brought to the table when we decided to partner together has evolved with the business and they have been instrumental in the results. The business has grown significantly since we partnered with Valor and the ability to scale was driven by key decisions in technology and go-to-market strategy that were directly attributable to Jon and Antonio.
— Orazio Buzza, Founder & CEO, Fooda
