Our careers were built on building companies from the ground up and we understand the challenges of launching a successful new company. From initial concept to market validation to venture funding — we’ve been there and we know what it takes. In addition to funding, we offer our start-up, operations and finance experience as both founders and CEOs. Our approach offers what we had hoped for when we were in your shoes: non-judgmental, experienced, high integrity communication, feedback and advice.
Unlike most firms, Inspiration structures seed investments in a way that minimizes risk for our limited partners and benefits founders by better aligning the investors interests with the founders. Our interests are completely aligned with yours — whether the next step is a follow-on venture investment or a company acquisition — your success is our success.
nspiration Ventures is a Silicon Valley based seed stage investment fund created by successful entrepreneurs and uniquely designed to meet the needs of entrepreneurs, diversify investment risk and maximize early capital returns.
The fund is structured to limit the risk of seed investing and more directly align the incentives of investors and entrepreneurs. Investments range in size from $250K to $1 million. Unlike most early stage funds that make many small investments and follow on at subsequent rounds, Inspiration is highly selective and only invests in the seed round. Risk is mitigated by partially exiting at the next financing event which also eliminates the conflict between existing and follow-on investments. Whether the next step is follow-on venture investment or company acquisition our interests are aligned with those of the entrepreneurs.
