We partner with mission-driven startup founders who previously took a venture round but have the drive to continue pursuing their company’s vision off of the venture capital funding route.
We collaborate with our strong network of venture capital investors and venture lending partners to identify and acquire the majority-stake in startup companies who need an alternative path to success.
Startups fail; many do for reasons beyond their control. Venture capitalists need to constantly re-evaluate their portfolio companies, pushing aside Series A and Series B startups that are not on a clear path towards a unicorn trajectory.
Venture lenders need a solution for startups who have taken venture debt in order to bridge their next funding round or extend their runway, but are unable to pay back their loans. These businesses may not be cash flow positive or profitable enough for venture capital investors to sign on for the next round. Stage Fund steps in to provide a positive resolution for investors, lenders, and startups alike.
Early-stage companies have big ideas, take significant risks, and set out to solve complicated problems. The worst outcome would be to waste this explosive growth in venture capital by losing the resulting innovation simply because a company isn’t on track to becoming a unicorn.
We believe in a different path – one of stability, growth, and profit where we target our portfolio company for an exit. Stage Fund has a history and wealth of knowledge as operators who have failed and succeeded. We know how to get you through it, together.
