WHAT WE DO

We started Unshackled Ventures with a simple vision - help immigrant founded startups succeed faster.

We aren’t afraid to take the riskiest leaps with immigrant founders at the earliest stages. This means, we love to lead and don’t follow “pattern recognition.” We don’t need to see anything built, developed or launched for us to invest. Candidly, it’s NEVER too early. By bringing together immigration and venture capital at day 0, we believe more immigrant founders will succeed faster. And history is on our side.  

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE


Unshackled Ventures believes that when we remove the obstacles for diverse teams they are free to tackle the biggest problems in the world. And that makes the world just a little bit better. For all.



PRE-SEED CAPITAL

We love to lead pre-seed rounds and will continue to support teams in subsequent rounds. 



STRUCTURE

Employment and immigration support needed to legally work and build a company in the U.S.

WHAT WE INVEST IN



FIRST INVESTORS

We love risks and aren’t afraid of them. You will never hear us say you are too early. We invest heavily in founders and teams.

TECHNOLOGIES SOLVING THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS

We believe in a better world led by better people. As a result, we don’t have a specific sector or tech focus, just companies serving massive industries leveraging hard technology solutions. Nothing that can have a major impact is off the table for us.

CAPITAL EFFICIENCY

We love to lead the first round of $500K or less. We are big believers that first money in should help contain the problem and validate key assumptions. Sometimes, we will work with exceptional teams even if they are further along.

IMMIGRANTS

We are committed to helping teams with at least one foreign born founder succeed faster.
