DIVERSITY AND INNOVATION ARE GOOD FOR PLACES
If diverse, decentralized and commercially thriving districts can deliver high skills and high wage economics, let's develop and revitalize more of them.
WIN Collective Ventures (WCV) is an emerging venture capital firm, national in scope, building on a Capital Catalytic Instrument that we call: The "ENTERPRISE INNOVATION FUND" (The EI FUND).
Our Point of Entry is Pre-Seed, Seed or Round A.
Typical Investment: $30K - $250K Seed; $500K - $20M Round A.
Our Investment Approach is directed to achieving the fiscal, economic and social benefits of building:
(1) Portfolio Diversity & Inclusion with a mandate to invest in women, minorities, immigrants, veterans, and certified women & minority business owners;
(2) Portfolio Size that scales 150 - 400 companies a year; and
(3) Portfolio Profitability that delivers average returns in the high 20s, 2.5x multiples & 20%-45% IRR.
Our solid operating platform allow us to work at regional and national level, scaling what's already working in communities.
Our Investment Criteria focuses on four verticals leveraging "The Third Wave of The Internet" and diverse applications in growing sectors:
(1) Advanced Manufacturing & Robotics (189% 5-year increased);
(2) AgTech, New Food and Food Waste (171% 5-year increased);
(3) Blockchain (163% 5-year increased); and
(4) Artificial Intelligence, Big Data and Analytics (77.5% 5-year increased).
To contribute to the growing inequality between cities, we aim to double down in industry verticals that make sense to support infrastructure, opportunistic real estate, logistics, transportation and other revenue opportunities -- including new top line streams, co-investment vehicles, corporate, and channel distribution partnerships to galvanize collaborations across shareholders in the ecosystem around FINTECH, BLOCKCHAIN and CYBERSECURITY industries.
We understand early risk mitigation and valuation are critical.
Starting at pre-seed stage, we devise an "Institutional Grade" methodology that addresses the risk/revenue/liquidation profile that investors need to balance social impact and humane technologies at early-stage.
Our goal is to use capital, talent investments/strategies, and investment vehicles beyond the 'equity-only' approach to bridge the gap between projects in nee of early-stage funding.
The Enterprise Innovation Accelerator
From A Founders Community to Co-Op
The EIA is the mechanism for WIN Collective Ventures to mitigate the risk of investment criteria in high-risk portfolios with the objective to build a solid foundation for local growth indicators such as business attraction, employment, middle class population and tourism attraction in under-served communities.
Our graduates skill-up with adequate technical assistance for prototype & proof of concept, customer development and acquisition, and team & board formation.
We are interested in advancing technologies for Smart Cities and Healthy Communities seeking to increase access in Qualified Opportunity Zones (QOZs) and other low-income communities needing investment to repopulate and reinvigorate small towns and rural areas.
Any Economic Development and Community Development Organization wishing to improve standards of living and diversify innovation will benefit from bringing new operating businesses and skills to local and national economies.
