Investing in human ventures

How we drive innovation.

Only 1% of startups access traditional venture capital. And that's only a tiny sliver of the economy that struggles to access funding. What about athletes, creators, solopreneurs, or other leaders of tomorrow? There are very few places they can turn to for capital to fuel their dreams.

We're changing that narrative. Chisos creates new structured finance tools to invest in individuals and their careers. Our approach unlocks access to capital at early stages, and achieves lasting social and economic impact.

Because funding shouldn't be limited to a tiny fraction of visionaries. Apply for funding today.

Entrepreneur Story

Support beyond capital.

I came to Chisos Capital because I needed funding to help get more traction with customers and prospects before my first institutional round.

I have been impressed with the value they have added beyond just financing; including advice and support on market strategy and the customer journey. It's what every solo founder needs; not to work in isolation.

Entrepreneur Story

Early funding

"Studies consistently show that female entrepreneurs face huge challenges in securing startup capital. I am so lucky to have found Chisos Capital to provide early funding for my CPG business. This team is more than just a capital partner, having offered intros and ideas to propel me and my company forward in this crazy entrepreneurial journey!"
Founder, Companion Candles

Capital for athletes

"As I pursue my MLB career ambitions (drafted and playing in the minor leagues) I know the importance of off-season training and getting access to top-tier training facilities.  I considered using my credit card(s) or a typical loan to pay for training/traveling when my agent suggested I contact Chisos Capital. We discussed the financing and landed on a flexible solution that is a better fit for me. Now, I can pursue my career the way I intend to."
