Helping Great Founders Raise Capital

ABOUT

FOR FOUNDERS

Building a fast-growing technology company is hard. Raising capital is hard. Doing both at the same time often feels impossible. At Kerosene Ventures we help great founders navigate the fundraising process. We apply our experience from raising over $100M in venture capital and debt to help founders raise the capital they need to fuel their companies.

Step one? Talk to us. Let us help you figure out if your business is attractive to investors. We will give you our detailed opinion first. From there you will find us straight forward in our advice which aims to optimize the raise, finding you the right investors and saving you months in the process.

FOR INVESTORS

Finding the next billion dollar company is pretty straight forward. Large market, great founders, traction and maybe a strong patent or two for good measure. Piece of cake, right?

At Kerosene Ventures, we strive to work with the most exciting tech companies seeking early stage capital. We introduce our investor partners to the very companies they are looking for based on their portfolio focus.

Whether you’re looking to invest in SaaS, Robotics, AI, marketplaces or any another tech vertical our aim is to match the right qualified start-up with the right investor.

METHODOLOGY

We have a structured 2 phase process that allows founders to focus on running their business while we take on some of the heavy lifting. We scope the project, develop the business plan, coach through the pitch process and, finally, help network into the investor community.

TESTIMONIALS

“The team at Kerosene Ventures was instrumental in helping me build my business plan and played a pivotal role in my seed and post seed financings.”

“From our first meeting, the Kerosene Ventures team has been a consigliere for my firm and I’d recommend them to any entrepreneur who is seriously considering institutional capital.”

“Kerosene were instrumental in helping close our multi-million-dollar seed round in 4 months. I would highly recommend their team and program to any founder looking to optimize their first institutional raise.”

“Two things thrilled us about Kerosene Ventures from the get-go. First, their expert direction on how to raise capital. Second, their flexible approach allowed us to focus on growing our business while raising capital simultaneously. These guys get it!”

“As a first time founder, I had lots of questions about raising capital. Thanks to Kerosene, we received 4 competitive term sheets from reputable VC funds and closed a multi-million-dollar seed round. We’re looking forward to being partners and friends with Kerosene for many years to come.”
