Take the Fundability Assessment

“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.”

“We had great financial, legal and technology advisors. What was missing was a fundraising advisor. We partnered with Kerosene to complete our first raise, and plan on engaging them on every raise going forward.”
