Our Approach
To be a collaborative, strategic investment partner to companies whose innovative technologies, processes and products complement and advance the Altria family of companies, help us seize new opportunities and deliver competitive advantages.​
Strategic Approach​​​
​Our primary focus is minority-stake investments. We think broadly about possibilities, seeking opportunities with the potential to deliver value to the Altria family of companies and our partners. We evaluate each investment individually on its own merits, seeking businesses with a compelling, clearly-defined or differentiated business opportunity.
Innovation-Oriented
​Our goal is to accelerate our ability to deliver innovative products and experiences for adult tobacco consumers. Driven by our own innovation spirit, we look for smart, resourceful, entrepreneurial partners with passion, focus and unique expertise. We rely on our partners to challenge us, bring inventive ways of thinking and help us move our businesses forward.
Partnership Focus
​We believe that collaborative relationships drive success. Our relationships are designed to foster a win/win outcome for Altria and our partners – we both gain and grow. We serve as advisors providing knowledge, expertise and guidance when it can be helpful. We’re actively pursuing innovative companies with whom we can develop successful and longstanding partnerships.
Experience-Based​

We have extensive experience and dedicated resources to make things happen, execute successfully and work in collaboration with our partners. Our companies' best-in-class brand management capabilities help move new ideas to market efficiently and effectively. Our world-class distribution network provides unparalleled scope and reach for our partners’ innovations.
