Burch Creative Capital has invested in many brands which have gained notoriety, including Voss Water; Jawbone, the creators of Up, the health app; and the Faena Hotel + Universe, the luxury hotel in Miami Beach and Buenos Aires. These projects, as with the others he has helped bring to market all began as startups. All startups struggle with the perfect blend of time spent on creativity versus hours spent on productivity. Burch believes the right mix of the two is actually a marriage between them.
Burch believes companies should have creative brainstorming sessions where everyone has a blank piece of paper and a pen before them. Their task is to jot down their ideas or notes and sketch any images that come to mind. At the end of that reasonably timed session, they should compile the ideas that are generated and start to produce the ideas that make the most beneficial ideas for the company.

The ideas and notes could lead to a company motto or a promotional campaign. By budgeting company time for both creativity and production, each activity is prized and appreciated by the team. Most importantly, Chris Burch sees these activities as definitely the most important blend of elements thrusting the company forward in the market.
