Anhelaré Partners have experience with startups beginning in the early-Internet era of the mid-1990s. We lived through the first dot-com bubble and bust cycle, and the many cycles and sub-cycles since. Through the -naughts, we helped many impactful startups succeed technically. Through the -teens, we expanded to helping startups on the business side as well. We’ve come at ideas from both the technical and the business world. We have raised (and we admit, failed to raise) for our own companies first and foremost. As a result, we learned the best way you truly can: experience.
Rather than starting one business at a time, we’ve decided we can make a bigger difference (see: Our Mission) by helping multiple innovative ideas succeed in quick succession. Through our Incubator & Accelerator programs, Advisory Services, and Investments – we’re helping others start or grow companies that we believe in. Value alignment is key for us.
Through our experience, we have a good idea of what works and what doesn’t work. We know the common pitfalls that come at the various stages of building, raising, operating, and selling companies. What’s more, we absolutely love innovation and making a difference in the world.
Who We Help
We coach, mentor, and consult startups in a number of ways. Here are a few…
- Business Entity Architecture/Creation
- Strategic Decisions
- Managing & Growing Your Business
- International Business Strategy
- Strategic CxO Services (CTO, COO, CFO, CMO)

- Technical Due Diligence
- Assessment of Persons (Team)
- Business Due Diligence
- Model/Financials (aka the spreadsheet jockey service)
- GTM Strategy
- Timeline Feasibility
- Market Research
- Competitive Research
If you’re into the idea of #startuplife, but you’re just getting started… maybe don’t have an idea yourself, you just know you want to dive in. We can help with that.
Or maybe you have an idea, but nothing formal and you aren’t sure how to take that first step. We can help with that too.
Or, maybe you just want to change your situation and want a different job. Even for those situations, we workshop your resume and help you reach your full potential.
We’re pretty serious people. Not to brag, but we kinda need to brag here. We’ve…
We admit it, we have an agenda.
Our lofty goals and ideals are not only where we want to spend our time, but also where money earned through our time and investment ends up over and over again.
In no small terms, we want to help:
The Right Fit
What differentiates us: we aren’t necessarily looking for a person or team with a proven track record. We love teams who have proven themselves, but too often people who have succeeded keep repeating while new entrants struggle to get a chance. We want to help experienced entrepreneurs, sure, but we also want to help first-timers.
We’re looking for people who…
- are serious and committed to their idea
- have an idea that makes technical and business sense
- have an idea that will resonate
- are driven enough to have a good chance of success
Our wheelhouse is early to mid-stage tech companies ($0.3M to $50M caps) in the following big picture realms:
- Modern (read: non-monolithic, cloud-based) Software Opportunities
- Innovative (read: non-commoditized or JIT) Hardware Opportunities
- Logistics, Processes, and Automation Opportunities
- International Business Opportunities
Also, we’re blunt and snarky. We’re looking to work with people who can operate in a literal, open-minded, no ego, logic prevails, fail-fast kind of way.
