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.”

“We would have never raised our seed round without Kerosene. If you’re a founder and are lucky enough to pass their screening, don’t think twice!”
