Introducing

A better approach to startup investing

83% of entrepreneurs are failed by existing funding options. With our unique approach to investing, the Convertible Income Share Agreement, Chisos steps into this gap.

A new Type of startup capital

Investing differently for a reason.

We're building better startup capital options for today's entrepreneurs. And it's working.
Democratizing Opportunity
Our approach enables us to invest in more founders, 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 founders. 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.
