A family office specializing in private equity and real estate investments.
Who we are
In 1976 Gerald McGinnis started Respironics, a company that made the first CPAP, or Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine for treating sleep apnea. He founded Respironics in his wife's kitchen in Monroeville PA, hence the name of our investment group, Audrey's Kitchen. The international public company Philips acquired Respironics on March 14, 2008. A portion of the proceeds of Respironics' sale funded the family limited partnership named "Audrey's Kitchen" in 2010.
Currently, Audrey's Kitchen invests in startups, private equity funds, and real estate. We hope to leverage our understanding and context in the national ecosystem to help startups reach success.
