Our Mission

Give change-makers the capacity to build innovative companies. 

At Carnation Capital, we come to work everyday because we want to solve the biggest problem facing founders, soloproneurs, and any new venture. Lack of capacity. Founders have the creativity and vision to build revolutionary companies to make the world a better place. However, when you also need to focus on hiring across multiple departments, learning the intricacies of startup fundraising, building an online presence, and managing your day-to-day operations, you can easily become overwhelmed.

You don't have to do it alone. Our mission is to provide the support that founders need to build their company. We're growth partners for the long-haul, ready to become an integrated partner and do the gritty work to get things done.

We're ready when you are.
