Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to have a business plan (i.e. Shark Tank) competition?

No, but we can help you build one out if desired.

What are your fees?

We charge a flat consulting fee to create and launch your own venture fund, which offers you a more economical option than building your own presence from the ground up. After fund closing, we charge a management fee to investors in the fund to help build and manage the fund’s portfolio of investments, and we share in the profits of successful company exits with you.

You will serve as a new capital pathway for your innovator members and provide your investor members with access to venture investments. We share profits with you on successful deal exits, creating a new revenue stream for your organization.
