CIF is a value added partner to entrepreneurs and their team. We understand that it is your vision that makes our investment opportunity possible. We strive to help you achieve your vision through our capital, experience and relationships.
We invest $3-$6 million in each of our partner companies over the life of our investment horizon. 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 Series A, Series B, or growth stage rounds. CIF looks for investment opportunities where the company is beyond proof of concept - and generally $1 million or more of annualized commercial sales.
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 invest for positive community impact.
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 leading with the highest environmental, social and governance standards.
