We’ve changed the way the Venture Capital model
works for investors
We, like you, want the highest returns possible.
The best way to do that is to:
- Help each company be successful by provide the proper funding and allow the entrepreneur the freedom to passionately pursue his or her vision
- Reduce the number of companies that fail by focusing first on the technology and its potential, then on the team
- Increase the percent of profit – the highest percent return for the lowest dollar investment. As you know, dollars are not scalable, 15% of a thousand dollars is the same percent profit as 15% percent of a million dollars.
Because we specialize in disruptive technology companies, we can concentrate on the special needs and unique idiosyncrasies of these dynamic types of companies. This specialization is even more in-depth, as we are focused on three rapidly developing industries: 3D Printing, Big Data and Robotics.
We search out and identify potential companies we might have an interest in funding. Then, we do the initial research including the technology and its adoption rates, market potential and scalability, the team involved, and preliminary due diligence including company structure, accounting and legal. If the company gets past this stage, we expand this research and diligence until we are at a decision point on whether to fund or not. Then, we negotiate the monies needed, the milestones, the exit and the terms.
A Limited Partnership Is Set Up For Each Investment
Once we make a commitment to fund a specific company, we set up a Limited Partnership for that company; and as the General Partner, we invest in each company along with the other investors.
However, rather than the standard Venture Capital model of one very large Limited Partnership with a 10 year life and a large money commitment from each investor, we set up a Limited Partnership for each company we invest in. Our focus is on making each Limited Partnership successful.
We have changed the terms as well. Rather than the standard two percent management fee for the life of the Limited Partnership, our fee is for three years only; and rather than twenty percent of net profits, we’re down to fifteen percent.
