Investing in Early-Stage Startups Elevating our startups from 1-10 Providing more than just venture capital Talking less and doing more



Every VC will tell you triple triple double double and then your IPO... but they don't tell you HOW. Shasta helps you actually implement what you need to get there."

Reach New Heights faster

Shasta Elevate is a program built by top industry experts to help our portfolio accelerate to key milestones faster.

Unlike other platform programs, Elevate doesn't tell founders what to do but instead teaches them how to execute.

The program consists of a proven methodology and a set of comprehensive playbooks that dive deep into the obstacles and challenges of early-stage startups. 

There is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to early-stage, so this agile program allows founders to tap into the resources they need when they need it.
