With over 15 years in the Venture Capital industry, I’ve learned that every aspect of business matters. From project acquisition and its complexity to the difficulties of keeping projects flowing and scaling, to the critical importance of timely investment exits, I have experience with it all. Let me help you with this challenging journey and share my own experience
VC and Family Offices structures that comply with EU or Hong Kong norms and regulations. The company will have a legal right to allocate investors’ money in shares or stocks of other legal entities. Capital return rates, hurdle rates, and managers Carried Interest should be set, among other operational procedures. With that comes all necessary report structures to financial regulators and supervisors.
Over the last ten years, CVC fund activity has increased significantly. Toda, being a profitable company that concentrates on its product and clients, is not enough. Corporations constantly have to look around for new opportunities and rising stars. Due to that, they can maintain an appropriate level of innovation. It is also crucial to remain attractive to more professionals and customers.
Any investor needs to build a vivid environment around them. To have an investor that brings along some value-added is one of the most desirable elements for the shareholders and founders. Strengths will be highlighted and will become more visible to your new potential partners. Become distinctive and recognizable, and create an ecosystem to work within. Consider joining or even organising one of the branch events, focusing on social media, or building relations with partners and like-minded investors.
Active scouting of investment companies will attract the highest number of unique project submissions. Implementation of methods will help fill out the project funnel. It will include designed networking activities and marketing methods to communicate with the founders and CEOs. Sourcing projects not available at most industry conferences and events. Acquisition of new, often undiscovered Startups and Scale-ups, which so far remained outside the radar of the VC market.
It’s not only about spreading the risk. It is also about inviting the right partners to your investments. Through collaboration, find out where to attract the best co-investors, to become one for any external investor. Needs and expectations from potential co-investment partners will be discussed. Work out common goals and responsibilities for each party. Remember that sometimes it is better to have a smaller piece of a bigger pie.
Preparation and coordination of acceleration programs. Program design, invitations for the mentors and project managers. Coordination of the development of a project. Active help with achieving their milestones, reaching the market, and first or following customers. Know how to recognize the essential needs of any company, team, or Founder, and help bring more significant value to the table. Using collaboration and marketing tools, get fast feedback from the market. After, it will be easier to point any project in the right direction.
Active outlook on portfolio performance. A full scope of portfolio company’s financial and operational progress.
