Flexible capital and an experienced, local partner for Colorado companies
CIF delivers dedicated and reliable support to entrepreneurs and their team. We understand that it is your vision that makes your company special. CIF helps you achieve your goals with capital, experience and relationships.
We invest $500K to $3 million in initial rounds and reserve capital for future raises over the course of the partnership. In some cases, this will take the form of two or more rounds of investment, depending on the company's growth trajectory and capital requirements.
CIF typically invests in Late Seed, Series A, Series B, or growth stage rounds. CIF looks for investment opportunities where the business model is beyond proof of concept.
The principals of CIF are experienced investors across a variety of sectors. Our strategy is focused on Colorado based industries where the state has native talent and demonstrated sector leadership. Our investments range from natural foods to health care to technology and education.
We seek to partner with entrepreneurs who believe that business can be a force for good in the community. Our partner companies achieve positive community impact either through the nature of their products or services or by leading with the highest environmental, social and governance standards, or by creating jobs and opportunity in rural Colorado.
