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.

Our Track Record
We are emerging managers, but this isn't our first time allocating capital. Via angel investing, Differential Venture Studio, and the Ocean Accelerator, we reviewed thousands of startup concepts and teams. Fireroad Ventures I brings professional management to the strategies for sourcing and vetting deals we have been leveraging for seven years.

How We Invest
As an inception-stage investor, we know founders won't have all the answers and that the future of a business is impossible to predict. That's why we have been fine tuning our screening and diligence process to identify strong founding teams with scalable ideas and resilience for the road ahead.
How we win
History of spotting early winners
We've vetted thousands of startups and accelerated dozens of them to venture capital maturity, and our picks have grown 5.5x. We're using the same process we've honed for more than 10 years.
Unrivaled product knowledge
We pioneered the studio model in 2014, returning 5x to investors. Then, we founded high-growth companies, raising over $470M and creating more than $1.5B in enterprise value.
Through partnership with Ocean Accelerator and Fireroad Foundry initiatives, we identify and invest in promising startups before they become widely known or competitive.
Resilience, purpose, and relationships are essential for the life of a founder. We partner to bring resources founders need to stay in the game. This isn’t just about de-risking investments, it’s about bringing humanity back to venture capital.
we'd like to get to know you
Fireroad uses a tool called Wendal to meet founding teams. Based on data from thousands of startup teams, Wendal is an AI-powered application that helps us understand important traits in founding teams, like: team dynamics and morale, leadership styles, disruptive thinking, and resilience. Wendal only takes 15 minutes from start-to-end, and you might even learn something new about yourself.Apply for funding
