Problems with early-stage private equity investing: Investors want the alpha from early-stage private equity in their portfolio, but don’t know how to add this asset class to their portfolio due to unique issues, including; Lack of liquidity. The average position liquidates in 10-12 years. Short odds of companies surviving. 90% of startup companies will not survive and 75% of startups will not return any investor capital. Difficulty managing risk mitigation in the portfolio. Too many positions. investors have to hold between 20–30 companies in order to achieve diversification. Too much time. The average time spent by an angel investor on due-diligence activities (mentoring, serving on boards, financial monitoring, etc.) was 20 hours per week. The top quintile of investors spend over 40 hours per week.
We take a unique approach, targeting later-stage companies less than 2 years away from liquidity. For these companies making millions of dollars in revenue, we provide a path to investor liquidity. This can be done either through mergers and acquisitions (M&A) or initial public offerings (IPOs). Investors simplify their investments: Buy one fund, therefore saving time and alleviating the need for multiple rounds of due-diligence activities; and by working with later-stage companies, investment outcomes are improved.
