“The fit-to-brief part is the thing that differentiates VentureFuel. We're not looking at startups as an investment, as a VC fund. We're looking at it to help our corporate partner. So we really sit with them and we articulate what their brief is, what their challenges, what they're trying to get after. And then that's the lens, through which we evaluate all startups first. So it could be a unicorn, but if it doesn't solve our corporate partner's challenge, it's not relevant.”
–Fred Schonenberg, Founder of VentureFuel
