Chisos was built to achieve one main goal: democratize entrepreneurship.
How do we do this? With a new investment product built for companies and ideas that have a difficult time accessing traditional or institutional capital. This investment product is called a CISA, or Convertible Income Share Agreement.
We look for companies that don’t fit the “grow at all costs” venture capital funding model, or the predictable 5-year growth with hard asset collateral model usually required for bank business loans.
Instead, we look for ideas, founders, and companies with potential and an actionable plan. When we find them, we connect them with the capital and community they need to succeed.
