We're on a mission to democratize opportunity.

Chisos addresses a major gap in funding for talented individuals. We back founders, athletes, and creators building the economy of tomorrow.

Founder Story

I founded Chisos because I experienced firsthand how difficult it is to raise capital. I didn’t believe then - and don’t now - that venture capital was the best way to fuel the majority of businesses. And so I decided to take on the challenge of building a better way to fund entrepreneurs, creators, and athletes. Four years later, I’m proud to say it’s working:

  • Our approach enables us to invest in more innovators, at even earlier stages. We're like the "Friends & Family" round, without the friends and family.
  • We’re able to invest in more founders and innovators annually than the average VC. We’ve already invested in more than 60 founders
  • Our portfolio is different than the typical VC funds. Over 80% are outside of the Bay Area, and more than 60% of founders are underrepresented.
  • We leverage technology to accept applications, conduct due diligence, review opportunities, and make decisions. That means we can invest in weeks not months.

And what we’ve built so far is just the beginning. With the rise of the creator economy, companies-of-one, and people-as-brands, Chisos is uniquely positioned to meet the inevitable demand for capital.

A new Type of startup capital

Investing differently by design.

Democratizing Opportunity
Our approach enables us to invest in more individuals, at even earlier stages. For many, we're like the "Friends & Family" round, without the friends and family.
Increased Investing Capacity
The average VC invests in a few startups per year. We've invested in dozens of visionaries. Chisos blends human expertise with proprietary tech, so we can scale quickly.
Greater Social Impact
Traditional venture has an equality problem. Our portfolio is different; over 80% are outside of the Bay Area, and more than 70% of founders are underrepresented.
Faster Diligence Process
Investors typically take months to invest. We're built to review opportunities and make decisions in weeks.
Beyond Just Capital
Automated fundraising outreach, pitch help, peer-based community and mentorship. We're as hands-on as founders want us to be.
Enhanced Scalability
Human investing. Technical validation. Automated execution. This is venture investing, built for scale. Learn more and invest with us.
