Enjoy a coffee meeting with Chris Howard and Leah Busque, General Partners of Fuel Capital, at their office in Burlingame, CA.

Chris is the founding partner at Fuel Capital. Prior to founding Fuel, Chris was at Ignition Partners, where he created and ran the seed program. Previous to that, Chris spent ten years in advertising and marketing. At Heckler Associates, he launched several brands, including Aravon, New Balance’s comfort shoe business, and Procare, New Balance’s partner program. Chris ran offline and online marketing at the sporting goods retailer, Gear.com, prior to its sale to Overstock. Chris began his career at Team One Advertising, managing the national brand campaigns for Lexus and the American Cancer Society. 

Leah is General Partner at Fuel Capital, where she invests in early-stage companies across consumer technology, hardware, education, marketplaces, and retail. She’s passionate about supporting teams who are taking on world-changing ideas. Leah relates so well to founders because she is one herself. She created one of the most widely recognized consumer brands of the past decade with TaskRabbit. As TaskRabbit’s CEO for eight years, Leah scaled the company to 44 cities and raised more than $50 million. In 2016, Leah transitioned into the role of executive chairwoman and in 2017, TaskRabbit was acquired by IKEA.

Fuel is an early-stage venture firm dedicated to giving outsiders the inside edge through unrelenting commitment, authenticity, and hustle. The ideas that will define our future and shape our world can come from anywhere. The biggest ideas too often face the biggest barriers to entry, so we give every founder and company a hard look and a fair shake. Really. We leverage our resources, connections, experience, and expertise to carve a shortcut for you - so your energy is spent on building the future, instead of knocking on doors. And we bring a unique combination of operational experience and drive for excellence to help founders succeed.
