WE ARE A BOUTIQUE VENTURE CAPITAL FUND.

WE INVEST IN PASSIONATE ENTREPRENEURS AND EMERGING/COOL TECHNOLOGIES.

You can think of us as the delicious craft beer of the venture capital industry. We spend more time with our entrepreneurs than other investors are able to. We get more involved than other investors are willing to. We do whatever it takes to make sure that every single project reaches its full creative and monetary potential.

We don't just invest money. We invest ourselves. Good is never good enough for the team at Fancy Hat. If we partner with your start-up it's because we fully believe it can be something GREAT. Also, we really do keep our office in Gilbert, Arizona filled with delicious craft beer. Stop by sometime.

ARE WE THE RIGHT VENTURE CAPITAL PARTNER FOR YOU?

There isn't any template for what we consider the perfect project to invest in. We are looking for great ideas formed by great people that can potentially disrupt the tech industry. We prefer early stage start-ups looking for funding in the $10,000 - $250,000 range and entrepreneurs who are open to guidance and a true partnership.

Status 77

Status 77 powers native and web interactions for mobile operators, enabling them to deliver curated search and content experiences leading to increased retention. Additionally, we provide search, content, and apps to personalize mobile devices and monetize user interactions.

Status 77 Squared

We initially went to Fancy Hat for some much needed capital for a new modular design. We ended up getting so much more than just money. Their team completely revamped our marketing strategy and put new systems in place that should increase sales by 300% this year alone. The entire experience has far surpassed our expectations and we have never been so excited for the future of Instant Data Centers.
