Ventum will forever remain true to their core customer, however it is with great excitement, that we at Black Oak Capital find ourselves entering into a partnership with intelligent driven owners and operators who are poised to expand their product offering to include road bikes, gravel bikes and an impressive suite of e-bikes”.
“We patiently tracked Ventum for two years before officially committing to partner with the executive team, Diaa Nour and Barrett Brandon. We believe in the owner, the executive team and the company’s vision. We are eager to support Ventum as they execute that vision.”- Gregory David Seare, Founding Partner & Chairman, Black Oak Capital.

Diaa Nour, Ventum Founder and CEO offers, “We wanted to partner with Black Oak Capital due to the immediate connection we felt towards the team, including Greg’s knowledge and leadership.

It is the perfect partnership.”
