Unshackled is an innovative fund designed to extend the entrepreneurship opportunity to an untapped pool of entrepreneurs in our country — immigrant founders on work visas. By changing the way venture funds deploy capital, Unshackled is the only fund in the country enabling top immigrant entrepreneurs at the earliest stage possible. This unique model allows us to retain and invest in brilliant founders on visas (H1-B, TN, OPT, E3, H4, etc.).

Unshackled is supported by 80+ highly influential investors, including Brad Feld, First Round Capital, Jerry Yang and Laurene Powell Jobs. The fund has made over a dozen investments in nearly 30 founders born in 6 different continents. For more information on the investors, investments and team, please visit us at www.unshackled.co.
