)-- Delk Enterprises, Inc., a Kentucky based venture capital firm, announced today the completion of its investment transaction in IPS. The investment was made to acquire ownership interest from an early founder of the organization who funded the initial online digital platform and to also seed the organization with additional working capital for strategic growth.
“When I was initially approached with the opportunity, it didn’t seem to be something that really fit into our investment criteria; however after hearing the story and their needs from the Medical Director and Chairman Dr. William Seeds, we felt as if there was a real opportunity here,” said Jeremy Delk, CEO of Delk Enterprises. IPS had been looking for a strategic investor to take out prior stakeholders on the cap table that were not completely aligned with Chairman’s vision.
“This organization, I believe holds tremendous promise on how medical practitioners comprehend and utilize new and innovative treatment modalities. We have already experienced rapid growth and adoption, and we are excited to now have the resources to take this to the next level. It was important to me, and I believe my responsibility to our members and partners that any investment would not have any strings,” said Dr. William Seeds Chairman of IPS. “Jeremy Delk and his team have provided not only the resources but have offered up some great insight on how this can be scaled to help more practitioners and ultimately more patients! This is exactly what we were hoping for in an investment partner while still keeping complete control of education, content, and providing overall final decisions to myself and other colleagues on the board.”
“IPS is well on its way, and we feel that after this bit of housekeeping, they have the team in place to accomplish their mission, one of which is core to both our personal and investment philosophies, positively impacting health care with a well care approach. We look forward to seeing the organizations developments from here.” - Jeremy Delk
