A Simple Mission to Create Extraordinary Impact

At BisonX, we have a simple mission: To provide regional founders the backing they need to validate their business ideas. We fund them with the capital necessary to engage trusted resources through our wide community of professionals, including attorneys, accountants, branding and marketing specialists, and industry leaders. And we have an expansive network of investors that we engage to catapult our founders into entrepreneurship.


BisonX: A Non-Profit Startup Studio and Venture Capital Fund Built by Founders for Founders

BisonX is a non-profit organization providing startup grant funding and resource support to validate business ideas. We are recognized for our expertise across startup and investment communities, and we are bringing that expertise to the five-state area of Minnesota, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming.

Our commitment to providing a robust VC ecosystem supports entrepreneurs in our communities through research and development, volunteering, university incubators, accelerators, consulting, and advisory groups.

As we guide our founders and their companies toward scale and reach, revenues from our equity shares generate funds for our grant program, cohort expenses, and future placements. The founders we assist often become mentors in the BisonX cohorts, fostering opportunity, economic wealth, new jobs, new companies, and venture capital access throughout the region.

Our passionate team of venture capitalists, mentors, and advisors invites you to join us today in creating a lasting impact in the region.
