Dare to Dream Big

Fulcrum Venture Accelerator is a fundraising accelerator for impactful startups. We believe that fundraising is its own skill and that without this skill many entrepreneurs fail where otherwise they would succeed.

Our programs help founders become among the top 1% of startup founders when it comes to raising seed capital.

All our programs are based on the real-world experience of startup founders. We have taken everything we’ve learned about raising seed capital and distilled it down into an effective repeatable system.

We believe that armed with this system and a desire to execute, any founder can find and close the right investors for their venture.

If you are a startup founder who needs investment capital to take your venture to the next level, please check out our programs and consider applying. Our mission is to help 100 impactful startups get funded, will you be next?

Fulcrum Venture Accelerator was founded in 2019 by serial social entrepreneur Will Sacks with the mission to empower socially-minded entrepreneurs and help them succeed at raising capital.

Will once created a solar powered race car that he raced from Chicago to Los Angeles and most recently founded Kindara with the mission to empower women everywhere through body literacy. Kindara raised around $9M in angel and venture funding and was acquired in 2018. He and the Fulcrum Venture Accelerator team are based in Boulder CO, and Nashville TN, USA.
