Fields Texas Ltd. is a private holding company located in Austin Texas. Its activities include direct capital investments in operating companies, investment vehicles, as well as active and passive investments in which we provide capital, resources or both to support the growth of companies or ideas within the consumer and retail sectors globally.

Our approach is more creative than solely investing capital. We invest at multiple levels and in a variety of ways.

We look for interesting businesses or ideas where we can influence the outcome. When we find a venture that we believe has major potential, we invest in the form of capital, management consulting, or through the application of our own resources. We have an experienced team with expertise in sales, marketing, supply chain/strategic sourcing and strategic business planning. We like to invest our intellectual capital and financial capital in businesses that interest us.

Businesses need strategic direction, sales and marketing support, financial analysis, and operations expertise. The Fields Texas team can provide them. We are constantly approached about supporting various ventures, but we choose our partnerships carefully.

Fields Texas Ltd. current and past portfolio includes a strategic partnership with a leading direct response television company, as well as ventures in the consumer and retail sectors, where we have significant expertise and long experience. Our current and past consumer goods interests encompass a US based manufacturer of artificial Christmas trees and pools, as well as interests in a leading electronic cigarette company and a large and emerging Chinese retailer.
