A New Way to Invest in Innovation
We have seen tech savvy Entrepreneurs drive skyrocket start-ups like Google, Amazon, eBay, PayPal, and Facebook to global success. Every day more entrepreneurs are trying to build and fund new innovative start-up companies to address the world’s greatest challenges and markets. From amazing new consumer electronics, to renewable energy solutions, to new medical devices, it is clear that the rate of innovation is accelerating. But none of these start-ups would have been possible without the visionary investors who provided the Venture Capital that companies need to grow.
The New Golden Age of Innovation
Introducing Venture Investment Portfolios (VIP’s)
Venture Investment Portfolios (VIP’s) are a new type of private closed-ended partnership that give investors an easy way to invest in large, professionally chosen “thematic” portfolios of 5 to 20 high quality early stage companies.
Accredited investors can now easily diversify their portfolio with high-risk private equity, but without the typical challenges of time, effort and excessive capital commitments.
- VIP’s have been designed to be similar to mutual funds or ETF’s but are functionally similar to Venture Capital partnerships.
- VIP’s give early stage investors an easier and more economic way to invest in early stage companies.
- Each VIP fund is focused on a specific investment theme or strategy and thus provides exposure only to tightly targeted opportunities and risks
- VIP’s with different themes can be combined to create targeted investment exposure that closely match each individual investor’s preferences.
- The minimum investment amount is $50,000 which makes VIP’s attractive to both new and experienced Angel investors.
