Fearless Fridays Newsletter | Investor Founder Relationships, Our Timeline & Small Business Spotlight (Clone)

Welcome back! This week, let's talk about Fearless Adventures. We want to highlight our journey and approach to investor-founder relationships. Let's see how we can work together and introduce you to a fantastic small business that caught our attention!

As always, we hope this adds a little value to your venture. Enjoy!👇

Investor Founder Relationship

Investor-founder relationships vary. Traditionally, VCs invest capital and then leave the business be, just checking in from time to time to review numbers and growth.

At Fearless Adventures, we believe in our embedded venture capital model. From the day we invest in a partner, we become an extension of their team. This means we work much more collaboratively with founders, ensure we're all aligned in reaching the same goals together, and check in regularly.

Fearless Adventures Timeline

Fearless Adventures > The genesis of Fearless Adventures came from its founders' frustration.

In response, we've built an ecosystem offering capital and wrap-around support.

Small Business Spotlight: Black Dog EQ

Introducing our small business spotlight Black Dog EQ . An innovative business founded by one of our Basecamp Skills graduates, Christopher G.

Black Dog EQ is a clothing brand raising awareness of the issues surrounding Men's mental health but, more importantly, giving people the skills to talk about, listen to, and support those in need of help. Christopher tells us, "The clothing is designed to create conversation around mental health, open dialogue, which is often difficult, and show others that you are open to talking. Someone's waiting for you to ask them, How are you?"

Awareness and support are in multiple mediums, including hand-finished apparel targeted towards starting conversations, tips and advice through social media, and through coaching of Emotional Intelligence on both personal and commercial levels.

"I really wanted to get that conversation going. It's definitely something that needs to happen. And I don't think we're doing it in the right way yet. So if I can create a platform to talk about these things and kind of raise the awareness and educate around it. If I help one person or 10 people, then I've benefited a little bit."
