• Loyal VC

    Giving entrepreneurs - women and men - a chance to prove themselves

  • How we Invest

    We believe in giving entrepreneurs a chance to prove themselves,
    rather than judging them from a pitch.


    We have existing deal flow sources who send us hundreds of companies from 50 countries, who have undergone months of vetting already from the referrers. We have the dealflow to deploy hundreds of millions of dollars yearly, and will do so, as we grow our funds under management.
     

    We pay referred companies monthly to enter due diligence with us, so we can mentor and get to know them before investing more. As we get to know our companies more, we progressively invest more and more in our best, round after round, either leading or following.

     

    We believe our entrepreneurs are the true experts in their business. Our investing partners, with decades of experience, provide general advice. Our tens of advisors, including our entrepreneurs, bring true expertise to bear, by industry, geography or function.
    It is only fair that they share in our upside.

     

    Giving people a chance means funding women - who make up over 30% of our portfolio by numbers and dollars - and men. It also means investing globally, six countries and counting.

     

    Some of our entrepreneurs lack wealthy ‘friends and family’, and find our modest monthly due diligence payments meaningful to grow their company. With suitable investor support we can continue to increase their numbers.

     

    We offer investors in our fund something different than they can do for themselves. We have a highly diversified global fund. We follow strict rules that reduce our freedom, to make returns more reliable. We offer the potential for quarterly liquidity. We allow LPs to co-invest directly, without fees, within limits. We invest excess cash intelligently and give the returns to our LPs. And we defer our fees until LPs have cash back in their hands.

     

    You diversify your assets into early stage tech globally following a strategy that is - to be honest - too much work for you to try to replicate, and we don’t get paid until you do.

     

    We treat our investors, our entrepreneurs and our advisors as we would want to be treated, offering them terms we would say yes to ourselves. To us the golden rule of ‘do unto others as you would have them do unto you’ is the basis of lasting loyalty.
