Putting the Entrepreneur First
Fulcrum Investing is a Chicago-based, family office dedicated to the advancement and assistance of start-up companies and the entrepreneurial community. Fulcrum invests in Seed through Series B start-ups nationwide.
Our Focus & Process
Fulcrum targets initial opportunities raising Seed through Series B rounds. We remain industry agnostic, but only pursue US-headquartered businesses. Those companies will need to have a strong vision and plans behind their culture, technology, marketing, and finances. We actively participate in subsequent rounds of funding for companies in which we have previously invested.
Fulcrum Investing deploys a unique and effective diligence model that helps eliminate bias and lengthy decision timelines. Our process takes 30 to 45 days to complete and consists of multiple conversations with individual area experts. Whether we invest or not, we support the start-up community by offering our time and resources to start-ups in need.
