TransactionBATL Closes Series A Round
Advisory — Strategic Consulting
Consumers & Retail
We advised The Backyard Axe Throwing League (BATL), the world’s original and largest urban axe throwing organization with over 200,000 annual visitors and 325 employees, on their Series A round of financing. This new infusion of capital will fund the company’s expansion plans as they grow their footprint from 14 to 100 locations across North America.
what people are saying
BATL was born out of a personal passion, started as a backyard business. After some early steady growth and a successful Toronto commercial location, I was approached by FirePower CEO, Ilan Jacobson, with a proposal to partner so we could build something truly special. Once we joined forces, it quickly became clear that having Ilan as a partner, along with the support of the FirePower team, would give BATL a real advantage. In addition to capital, Firepower provided the strategic expertise and support we needed to take BATL to the next level. Since day one, Ilan Jacobson has been a stalwart supporter as we scaled the business across North America. We’re proud of the success we’ve achieved for BATL so far – it’s fueled by people that share the passion to make something great every day. Ilan Jacobson and the FirePower team have been part of that…a driving force to help us reach new heights. And we’re just getting started!
