Our Principles

It's a lot more fun to win together. So let's
win together.

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.

WHAT ARE THE OTHER BENEFITS?
  • 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.

Institutional investors and the ultra-rich invest in alternative assets (startups, real estate, cryptocurrency, NFTs, art, collectibles, etc.) at a much higher rate than the average investor.

How high? The Yale endowment's portfolio consists of 77% in alternative assets. When it comes to investing in companies specifically, the public market is shrinking and companies are staying private for longer. By the time private companies go public, the majority of their growth as a company has already passed. Everyone who had interest has already taken a bite, and there are a lot fewer returns to be realized.

YET HISTORICALLY, ACCESS TO ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS HAVE HAD RESTRICTIVELY HIGH BARRIERS:
  • 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)

"In today’s world, more people need to become investors to participate in what is turning out to be the greatest technological and wealth transformation in history driven by new tech and crypto. That’s why it's imperative that we democratize investing globally together, now."

Our vision is to build a true community, emphasizing interaction between LPs, the creation of a strong network, crowdsourced deal flow and due diligence, and helping each other win outside of the fund.

KEY FEATURES OF THE COMMUNITY:
  • 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.

You are not just investing into a fund, but an entire community.

The collective wisdom and collaboration of this community is our competitive advantage.
