Capital Strategy Partners has been an active investor in venture capital (VC) funds since the firm was launched in 2010. We are currently investing in venture capital funds and make direct investments in emerging technology companies in a diversified portfolio that includes early-stage rounds — also know as "angel investing" — through to late-stage growth equity finance.
More usually, venture capital provides money to companies in the earlier stages of a new business so that the company will become successful and repay the investment many times over. However, venture capital funding can also be provided at several stages in a company's development.
Once an entrepreneur has created a business plan and has assembled a competent, innovative management team and carry out preliminary market analysis, they begin to look for "seed capital".
Because the business plan is at this stage in its infancy, we base their investment decisions on the strength of it and, almost as important, appoint key personnel to the higher levels of the fledgling company.
