💸 We're Launching a Fund. Who's in?
We know, it's 2022. Everyone and their dog has a venture fund. But you wanna know what 99% of people don't have?
Deal flow 🛎 (ding, ding, ding)
Smart founders with validated startup ideas don't grow on trees. They're hard to find and even harder to charm.
But at Kernal, generating startup ideas is our day job. And they're only getting better. That's why we're announcing a fund that's gonna live on the back end of Kernal. 🌱
The venture world is a game of chasing. At Kernal, we're turning it into a game of picking. And our LPs will get reap the ripest fruit of the farm. 🍇
With our constrained beta version of Kernal, we've seen:
- 8,000+ members join our platform,
- 1,500+ startup ideas posted,
- and 150 startups launch
The next step is adding fuel to the flame. 🔥
So we're launching a Kernal Opportunities fund: A Pre-Seed Venture Fund that will invest in startups started on Kernal. If you wanna sign up to be one of our LPs, please fill out this form as a non-binding expression of interest.
🚀 Startup Ideas Twitter Should Invest In
Cat's outta the bag and Twitter's board has spoken. There's a new owner in town. As I'm sure he's got lots of threads to reply to, I thought we could help him out.
There's a lot of cool startup ideas Twitter could back on Kernal so we thought we'd round them up to make it easy.
Give 'em a browse and let us know which one's your favourite.
