“In a time when capital is abundant, our real value is advice and support. Every member of the Craft team has either been a unicorn founder or a successful operator. This deep industry expertise means that everyone at Craft is equipped to provide input or serve as a sounding board when founders need it most,” said Jeff Fluhr, General Partner of Craft Ventures, in a blog.
