Unorthodox Ventures

Austin, Texas, United States

Unorthodox Ventures partners with disruptive founders who want to manufacture extraordinary products and build enduring brands. If you need an investor, we will bring the capital. If you just have an idea, we can help you bring it to life.


Led by contrarian entrepreneur and Big Ass Fans Founder Carey Smith, our team of engineers, product managers and marketers has decades of experience.


Our hands-on partnership model earned us a 2021 World Changing Idea honor by Fast Company. Every year, entrepreneurs start more than half a million companies in America. Only 200 will ever reach $100 million in revenue. Carey and his team know what it takes to make it to $300 million. Let’s build something.
