“We have worked with One Better Ventures for several years and they have been excellent partners,” said Disruptive Enterprises CEO Mike Hockenberry. “Their experience developing brands and products, transforming mature categories, and enhancing omnichannel marketing is as useful as the capital they contribute. Our shared value of improving health and wellness of consumers and patients across all ages and stages of life makes this a natural fit.”

“We believe that a low-carb, high-fat diet is a more efficient and effective way to fuel your body and improve your physical and cognitive health,” said One Better Ventures Partner John Replogle. “In LCHF, we found an extraordinary team that meticulously researches, develops, markets, and distributes high quality products. The combination is a powerful mix, and we are delighted about our next chapter with a highly skilled team we know well.”

The partnership between the two companies dates back to 2014 when One Better Ventures was an advisor to Scivation, Inc., a leading sports nutrition brand that was founded by the executive leadership team of Disruptive Enterprises.
