VENTURE CAPITAL & PRIVATE EQUITY


 

The fundamental issue with traditional venture capital is that their goals are not aligned with the goals of the companies they invest in. Founders and employees of companies are focused on the success of their company; venture capitalists are focused on the success of their portfolio, which is comprised of many companies and allow on average 8 out 10 to fail.

We consider each investment we make very carefully, and do not view our investments as transactions, but as relationships. We are committed to building value in each opportunity, not just providing funding. One way we build value is that we not only work on the opportunities, but spend time each week working in them. .

The ideal exit for most opportunities is an IPO because of the tremendous potential for return on investment. Traditional venture capital views this as the only option for an exit, and ignores alternative options that actually may be the better choice for an opportunity. We do not. Though alternative exit options do not provide the significant returns of an IPO, they can be done at lower risk, provide a higher success rate and still are profitable for everyone.

BUSINESS PLAN SUBMISSION


 

We do not believe that opportunities all need to fit in the same box or adhere to the same generic criteria that most venture capital firms consider. Our work has led us to understand that each opportunity is different, and therefore we look at more than industry, deal-size and total addressable market to develop a comprehensive strategy for funding and go-to market.

EARLY STAGE OPPORTUNITIES

For early stage opportunities we prescribe to the matching seed funding model, where we will allocate funds for investment and the opportunity will be required to find matching funds to be able to pull down the entire allocation.
 
All opportunities should have defendable intellectual property, significant market potential and a have clearly defined path to revenue.

GROWTH OPPORTUNITIES

For growth opportunities we look for companies that have demonstrated value in the market and now are looking for capital to capture considerable market share in their existing market or expand into new markets.
 
All opportunities should have revenue and be near cash-flow breakeven, a significant Total Addressable Market (TAM), a strong leadership team and expertise, and a have defined growth strategy with clear understanding of how to achieve a Return on Investment.

CAPITAL PROCUREMENT


 

Bringing sellers and buyers together is only part of the formula toward consummating deals. The buyer must be able to procure the necessary funds to finance and close the transaction.
 
Accessing the requisite financing can be a frustrating and tedious process. There are many hoops that buyers must jump through, coupled with the process of articulating the strengths of a fluid business to financiers, who often bring a heavy dose of skepticism to the underwriting process. Buyers must understand how to obtain the necessary financing to acquire and operate the business.
