How do you create a pesticide that's safe to use around children, pets, and food preparation areas, that's effective, and that's also environmentally friendly? You go out into nature, find essential oils that plants naturally produce to protect themselves from pests, and you concentrate and formulate them for human use. That's what EcoSmart has done.

How do you turn this into a successful investment opportunity for early stage venture capital firms like Early Stage Partners? You obtain dozens of patents, develop commercial relationships with leading retailers of household products and execute your business plan. EcoSmart also has done that.

Early Stage Partners invested in EcoSmart, the world leader in botanical pesticides, in 2004, and has continued to support the company through multiple rounds of early stage venture capital financing.
