Represented Cambridge Companies SPG, LLC in connection with its investment in the Series A Preferred Stock of Matchabar, Inc.
Matchabar’s Better Energy drink sources their matcha from a family farm in Nishio, Japan. It purports to give an energy boost comparable to that of caffeine with the added benefit of an amino acid called l-theanine, which counters the jitters-inducing caffeine rush with calming effects. Matchabar has expanded from a single shop in New York City to Los Angeles (with two more shops set to open by the end of the year) and is distributed at Whole Foods and other retail outlets. Recording artist Drake is also one of the company’s early investors and is on the company’s advisory board.
