The Winning Together Fund is a Venture Fund and community of investors that invests in early-stage tech startups. Our investments exist across the verticals of SaaS, remote work, edtech, fintech, insurtech, web3, and more.
Being a solo winner is, well, lonely. This is why I've always tried to surround myself around people I can celebrate the wins with and help me navigate through the losses. And where I can offer the same vice versa. I love seeing my friends succeed, whether it be in business, personal goals, relationships, or investing. However, as is human nature, I also sometimes find myself being envious.
So it got me thinking, wouldn't it be better if we could all win together and align goals and incentives with those closest to us? We can genuinely celebrate achievements and wins as a group AND leverage our collective network and expertise to increase deal flow and quality of investment decisions.
We can pool our money together to write bigger checks to startups. Instead of one person writing a $5-10K check, we can write slightly larger checks ($25-50K+) and effectively diversify across a variety of startups.
With larger check sizes, we can gain higher leverage in negotiating for preferred shares or pro rata rights.
Through our pooled network and expertise, we can offer a lot more value to portfolio companies compared to independent angel investors.
We can crowdsource deal flow, due diligence, analysis, and share the carry with Limited Partners (LPs) that source winning deals. More on this below.
High capital requirements (e.g. real estate down payment)
Accredited investor requirements (USD $200K+ salary, or $1M+ assets)
Limited deal flow and access If you're not in tech or a founder yourself
Lack of knowledge and simplicity (e.g. lack of understanding of cryptocurrency and non-intuitive process for purchasing altcoins)
An active Slack channel is open for all LPs, with channels for announcements, deal discussions, and miscellaneous channels for discussing other asset classes (e.g., real estate, crypto).
We will run quarterly LP Zoom calls, covering fund updates, hosting live deal discussions with founders of prospective deals, and a networking segment for LPs to connect.
As an LP of the fund, you will be given a collectible NFT to represent your membership. These collectibles, operating as a badge, are unique to you. Investing in each subsequent fund means also getting a new NFT.
