About Chinook Lab

About Chinook Lab

Experience Matters

We work side-by-side with entrepreneurs in the areas most critical to the success for their new ventures - product development, customer development, business development, operational infrastructure, and recruiting. From customer development, partnerships, to fundraising, we help level the playing field for our portfolio companies.

Investment Strategy

We support early and growth stage entrepreneurs and our portfolio companies through mentoring, advisory, portfolio management and provide access to capital and bridge the gap between opportunity and capital to maximize investment for modest but robust financial returns. Through Chinook Lab Programs, we invest at the earliest stage of a venture's lifecycle "pre-seed", as the first institutional capital.

Why Chinook Capital?

Chinook Capital combines seed capital, hands-on help and a great co-working location with an expert team to positively impact the trajectory of early-stage startups. Chinook helps founders accelerate their business through its market-validation and customer-acquisition focus program - "Founders Incubator Program" and make investment in selected startups that have demonstrated the ability to scale quickly.
