Castore is a premium sportswear brand that utilises advanced engineering and unique technical fabrics.

The funding round (totalling £150 million) which was led by The Raine Group (a leading global TMT merchant bank) and supported by Hanaco Ventures, Felix Capital and Redrice, is the largest investment Castore has received. The investment will allow Castore to expand globally across various elite sports. Following this, Castore is now valued at £950 million.

Redrice has been involved with Castore since leading its seed round. The Joelson team was led by Managing Partner, Paul Chiappe and supported by Solicitor, Rajiv Samani.

Paul Chiappe, Managing Partner at Joelson, said:

“We are proud to have been part of this incredible deal with Redrice, investing in an amazing premium, sports brand. We are very aligned with Redrice’s values of supporting founders through their entire entrepreneurial journey and we look forward to supporting Tom and the team for many years to come.”
