Battle Born Venture makes equity investments, it does NOT issue grants.
Our mandate is dictated by US Treasury and State of Nevada guidelines, it does not have flexibility. We encourage you to work with Nevada SBDC to find alternative sources of funding until Battle Born Venture is a fit for you. You should also check out the accelerator programs that have been funded through Battle Born Venture.
Congrats, we look forward to welcoming your startup to our great state! Feel free to apply once you hold a Nevada business license and have a Nevada business address. We can’t look at out of state deals.
No, Battle Born Venture has limited funding, and can fund only a small portion of startups that approach us.
Regardless of whether we have invested alongside an investor in the past, investments are still on a case by case basis and there’s no such thing as an “approved” co-investor. Only Nevada Battle Born Growth Escalator, Inc. and its investment manager, Newbean Capital, participate in the investment process. We hate to see startups misled by bad actors so please drop us a line with as much info as possible and we’d be happy to look into the situation.
Battle Born Venture operates a blind investment process, meaning that startups do not pitch to the team. We believe that this approach has contributed to our higher-than-average investment in diverse entrepreneurs.
