We Are Driven.
Kickstand drives proven venture capital, consulting, and business advisory services for the ambitious.
Our founder, Jeff Anderson has over thirty years of experience providing venture capital, consulting, and business advisory services. During that time, he has managed some of the most successful companies and brands in the world.
Whether it was running Hasbro‘s billion dollar gaming business or building Turbine into the world’s largest independent online game company, he has done it all. Jeff has grown companies by leveraging the power of brands and negotiating complex publishing deals. He also has closed some of the biggest licensing deals in the world, including franchises like The Lord of the Rings and the National Football League.
Consequently, he has raised capital and acquired companies with a combined enterprise value of nearly $500 million.
We know it isn’t easy to build a winning product, and doing so requires capital. Raising funding is one of the most important (and difficult) tasks for any executive. As the result, most CEOs will tell you that fund raising is incredibly hard, complex, and time consuming – especially true in this market. Consequently, Kickstand is here to help provide seed funding.
It is true that the road ahead is uncertain. No one can predict the future so it’s critical to surround yourself with the right team. At Kickstand, we see ourselves as an extension of you. Your goals are our goals. Your plans are our plans. As the result, our team is committed to driving results – whether it is signing a big brand or getting a new publishing deal.
Also, after all these years, we have learned what we do well. We never try to sell you on services or strategy that we don’t believe. Therefore, whether it is helping you manage your board (with an independent board seat) or supporting your long-term strategic planning, Kickstand is here to provide you with world-class support for your company.
