Hi, we’re Allison Long-Pettine and Maria Gonzalez-Blanch, and together we make up Crescent Ridge Partners. We’re investors, founders, operators, and mothers.
We are an investment company based in Southern California that partners with visionary founders in the early stages of their business. We also provide growth equity for more mature and proven businesses (visit Alpine Ridge Partners for more on that strategy).
Founded in 2012 by Allison based on the need for hands-on, experienced early-stage capital in San Diego, Crescent Ridge Partners strives to bring our collaborative approach to those founders seeking capital to build a lasting legacy in business. We love working with all types of founders, and have a particular affinity for underrepresented founders who don’t fit the typical ‘startup founder’ mold given our own personal identities.
