Series A

Over 80% of startups that Crane invests in go on to raise Series A rounds. That’s not by accident. We work together with founders to put their companies in the best position to raise the right sized rounds from the best investors for them. And we maintain reserves to continue investing as companies scale.

Flight Summit

Every year we run a half-day summit focused for early-stage founders focused on GTM and adjacent topics. We spend one afternoon learning from founders and experienced operators sharing concrete lessons on how to design, build, run, scale, and debug the business side of startups from the ground up.

Founder Braintrusts

We provide a platform for cohorts of Crane company founders to gather on a regular basis to talk through their real life challenges running a startup and have open sessions with experienced operators, centered on specific themes such as Open Source and Sales.
