• Loyal VC

    A new approach to venture capital

  • Evergreen

    Loyal VC is an evergreen fund. Investors can buy in or sell out when the fund reprices every quarter. Since LP exits are no longer tied to company exits, entrepreneurs get a fund whose long term viewpoint matches theirs and investors get a fund that optimizes returns by selling at the best price, not the earliest.

  • Global Sourcing

    Entrepreneurial talent is not restricted to a specific region, country or industry. We partner with global organizations who have a deep understanding of the best local early stage companies. Then we leverage their networks to source diverse, pre-vetted, worthy founders.

  • Merit-Based

    We give companies a chance to prove themselves, whether they have rich friends and family or not, by investing early. We invest more based on what companies deliver over months, not how they pitch. Perhaps as a result, the fund invests in both women and men CEOs (40% female CEOs to date), in industries ranging from blockchain and AI to social ventures and biotech.

  • Rules-Driven

    Loyal’s goal is consistent, strong portfolio returns. That means giving up the belief that the future is predictable, and using strict rules to ensure agile, smart decisions as each portfolio company develops. All companies start with a 3-10+ month paid diligence period, during which we gather data. Four stages follow: $200K, $1M, $3M and $6M with up to a third of the companies at each stage moving on to the next, based on how they perform.

  • Aligned Interests

    Our founding partners have decades of experience as entrepreneurs, angel investors (3.3 - 4.4x personal ROI) and designing and running accelerator programs.

    We have built the fund we wished we could take money from as entrepreneurs. We have built an advisor offer, including sharing carry, that we would say yes to as busy advisors. We have fund terms, and fees, that we would say yes to, as angels who invest directly, and not in funds.


    We believe loyalty is earned by looking out for everyone’s interests, not just your own.
