Chisos was founded to achieve one main goal - democratize entrepreneurship.
We are building an investment firm where your potential is more important than your idea. At the earliest stages it is near impossible to know what idea will succeed and what will fail, which is why we focus so much on the entrepreneur and their ability to succeed in business and in life.
At Chisos we created a new investment product for companies and ideas that have a difficult time accessing capital. We are calling it a Convertible Income Share Agreement (“CISA”). We are looking for companies that do not fit the “grow at all costs” venture capital funding model, or do not fit the “5-year predictable growth with hard asset collateral” model that is usually required for a traditional bank business loan.
As every investment firm likes to say, "we want to be more than a capital provider." This statement is true for Chisos. We aim to provide a founder's community and available mentors for entrepreneurs we invest in. During our pilot program, consider us a part-time employee for your business. We will help with the basics while you focus on high-level execution and vision.
