We Help Fellow Founders Navigate Their Journey

Our Approach

Instead of throwing money and executive-level recruits at a problem and hoping for the best, Stormbreaker provides tangible tools and a proven platform for Founder Success

With 120+ years of wide-ranging experience, founders benefit from the fact that there’s nothing we haven’t seen

We’re the first and only early-stage VC firm to offer certified Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS®) Implementations to our portfolio to clarify Vision, improve Traction and cultivate Organizational Health

We aim to have lifelong relationships with all of our founders, partners, and stakeholders

Niels Martin Brochner

CEO, Contractbook

Stormbreaker doesn’t care about vanity metrics or who you know. What matters to Stormbreaker are solid business fundamentals and drive. Have both, and they will support you with everything they’ve got.

Jesse DePinto

CEO, Frontdesk

Partnering with Stormbreaker was one of the most impactful decisions we made. Stormbreaker is not just an investor, they are a partner. Their extensive operator experience has been a significant asset to our growth. Throughout all the challenges and opportunities, they have never wavered in their eagerness to help us build a transformative company.

Dean Kelly

CEO, Gainful

The Stormbreaker team was one of the first institutional investors to believe in the Gainful vision––back when Gainful was just a few people. They showed up early and have never swayed from their commitment to our team. And not only have they been incredibly supportive of Gainful, they are genuinely nice people - even sending me a gift when we had our first born son!
