We’re always looking for what’s next—and for partners who think the same way. We team with leaders, brands and companies who embrace opportunities to disrupt the norm and deliver growth. Supporting emerging brands and technologies whose passion equals our own positions us to redefine the future of delivering experiences. Through Constellation Ventures, we collaborate with people and brands to drive innovation and transform the future of the industry together. As consumers trend toward premiumization, we’re exploring new ideas and technologies, and connecting with people and brands that are reaching to fulfill those desires.
Women-led businesses are the fastest-growing segment of entrepreneurship in the U.S. -- but they only receive a fraction of venture capital funding.
Similarly, women are an underrepresented consumer across total beverage alcohol – even though they account for nearly half of the category’s total consumer base.
These gaps are real. It’s why we plan to invest $100 million in female-founded or led businesses by 2028 as part of our Focus on Female Founders program.
These investments will not only give us access to a group of entrepreneurs who are creating disruptive innovation that will help accelerate growth in the years ahead, but will also allow us to enhance female perspectives within our business to further develop insights that are truly reflective of the diverse consumers we serve.
