Crossbeam ranks at the top of my list of VCs. They helped us land our largest customer, navigate credit term sheets, get up to speed on our market, support with recruiting etc. – if it wasn’t for them, we would be a fraction of the business we are today.

I couldn’t recommend Ali and team at Crossbeam more highly. I’ve rarely seen a team more willing to roll up their sleeves to help, go above and beyond, even before they invested; and have the right combination of creative and practical.

Since our inception, the Crossbeam team has provided tremendous value by providing access to founder-friendly and creative financing structures. The team possesses unique industry insights, and the value Crossbeam provides extends far beyond capital.

Founder & CEO, Nelo

The Crossbeam team have been incredible thought partners around debt and equity capital raising. They have a deep understanding of emerging business models and platforms - if you're building for the future, you need them on your cap table.

Crossbeam took the time to understand exactly what we do and need, raised capital at many key moments of scaling, and provided strategic and operational guidance like a true partner. I would recommend any founder to work with Crossbeam.

Founder & CEO, Paytient

Pound for pound, Crossbeam is a heavy hitter on our cap table - their ability to understand a complex business model is not unnoticed. When I text with Ali, it feels more like a founder to founder chat than an investor update: founders will understand that shorthand.
