We work with business owners who are looking for a hands-on partner to help them scale and take some chips off the table.
Fireroad works with inspiring founders in your earliest days, primarily through pre-seed investment and hands-on guidance. Not sure if we're the right fit for you? Let's figure it out together.
Fireroad partners with individual and institutional investors who want to invest as a force for good in the world. Join us by participating in Fireroad Ventures, co-investing in direct deals, or sharing ownership in a company we hold at Fireroad Holdings.
Great people build great businesses. If you're an experienced leader, technologist, operator, etc, we're always looking for great people to join the Fireroad portfolio!
None of these categories fit you? We get it. You don’t like to be boxed in. We respect that.
Your partner on the

Fireroad works with bold leaders to build and grow companies that can be a force for good in the world.
Build. Buy. Back.
Fireroad is a new kind of holding company that launches, invests in, and grows companies. We partner with mission-driven entrepreneurs and investors focused on long-term impact.
Fireroad Foundry is where big ideas start. We know firsthand that going from zero to one is an exhilirating and sometimes scary journey. The Foundry partners with founders at the earliest stages, walking alongside them as we rapidly test ideas, build MVPs, and find product market fit. As ideas turn into real products, we help companies scale up or spin out and raise. Fireroad loves big ideas and bold teams!
Fireroad HoldCo invests in existing businesses and takes an active role in helping introduce technology, automation, and proven processes and systems that enable growth. We love businesses in industries with a consistent history of profitability, great leaders, and a path to growth. Businesses that won't be replaced by AI anytime soon, but can benefit from tech-enablement — trades, home services, etc. If you are an owner interested in a partner to help you take some chips off the table while preserving your team and legacy, we'd love to talk.
Fireroad Ventures invests in early-stage tech companies led by inspiring founders. Our team has founded unicorn startups and invested in more than 75 companies. We bring decades of experience in technology, go-to-market, team and culture building, and fundraising to the table and enjoy helping our founders avoid the landmines, traps, and distractions of the startup adventure. As operators ourselves, we stay closely involved through the early stages and bring both experience and capital to the table to fuel growth.
THE FIREROAD MISSION:
To cultivate entrepreneurship as a force for good in the world
We believe that great jobs are a springboard to meaningful lives. A great job gives people the opportunity to work in an environment that respects their autonomy, enables mastery of their craft, and connects their work to a greater mission. The effects are profound on individuals, households, and communities. This is our why.
What is a Fireroad?
The road less traveled.
Fireroads offer a gateway to adventure, providing just enough access and infrastructure needed to explore. Much like company-building, travelers must be willing to get dirty, fall, get lost, and figure things out to have a great adventure.
Sometimes a lesser-known path is exactly the opportunity to shortcut a journey but we don’t always need to blaze new trails. It takes curiosity to find these paths, wisdom to know when to take one, and boldness for the journey ahead.
