Help founders avoid critical mistakes, secure capital, and build transformative companies

People

Every Entrada partner has the experience of being a highly successful entrepreneur and understands all stages of building great companies from bootstrap to IPO — something not traditionally found in many VC firms. In addition, the core focus on California Central Coast is the common thread that binds this team, all of whom are committed to bringing​ awareness and elevating the ecosystem in Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura Counties. It's a special team in an exciting growth​ region.
