At Kickstart we invest in exceptional founding teams…
We want you: entrepreneurs, explorers and builders who are passionate about improving the world through innovation and technology.
We seek optimists who are confident in their vision but flexible enough to meet the challenges of launching a groundbreaking product.
We love entrepreneurs who compel talent, partners and capital to their ideas and are relentless in building world-class teams.

Kickstart has understood and supported BrainStorm’s values and goals since the beginning. They’ve been willing to give a hand whenever we’ve needed it, but they’ve also allowed us to march to the beat of our own drum and build BrainStorm the way we have always envisioned.Eric Farr & John Wade (Executive Officers) — Brainstorm

Kickstart has been an integral partner as we’ve built Lucid. They've had thoughtful advice at each stage of our company and have pushed us to set our sights high. They have been instrumental in our recruiting and have helped us find several key executives.Karl Sun (CEO) — Lucid Software

Accelerating Growth + Success
Traditionally, venture capital firms add value primarily through capital and one-on-one interactions like board meetings. At Kickstart, we go beyond this.
Kickstart Collective, our community platform, brings all the knowledge across our networks directly to our portfolio companies in the form of events, resources, and connections.
Collective makes an investment from Kickstart more than a new board member or a check: it’s an invitation to an exclusive community of founders in the Intermountain West who support, trust, and learn from one another.
