Why Venture Capital?

VCs invest in startups that disrupt industries and reinvent the world we live in, generating billions of dollars.

The biggest limitation of VC funds is their illiquidity. Until now investing in a VC fund meant “freezing” your money for 7-10 years.

For that reason, investing in the most exciting (and risky) stage of tech startups was blocked for most private investors, and even financial institutions could only dedicate a fraction of investments to it.

Enter the Blockchain

SPiCE VC is eliminating the illiquidity problem by issuing digital security tokens to its investors, which are tradable from day one.

The tokens are regulation-compliant, and will entitle holders to 100% of net exits, just like traditional VC funds - only liquid.

Our Mission

To revolutionize the way venture capital is raised and managed with SPiCE VC, a liquid tokenized fund.

From the world of Blockchain we bring:

  • Making VC investments liquid: no more 7-10 year lockups.
  • Making VC investments inclusive: opening up to pre-qualified investors (per country regulations), investing in fiat or cryptocurrencies.
  • A powerful model for investing in pre token sale startups, with VC-grade due diligence, and getting the best terms in the token sales.

From the world of Venture Capital we bring:

  • Robust investment process and due diligence by a team of highly experienced entrepreneurs.
  • Diversification outside crypto, into equity investments across the hottest tech sectors such as AI, AR/VR, IoT, cyber security, etc.
  • Backing tokens by assets, shielding them from market volatility.

Investment Thesis

Investing in amazing pre-series-A and pre-token sale startups in the hottest tech sectors.

We have identified a huge gap, which developed in the last few years in the tech ecosystem.

On one hand, it has become easier for new startups to raise first money for “A team & A dream” from micro funds, thousands of angels, and hundreds of incubators.

On the other hand, the next step up the ladder - series A rounds, have grown in size, and so have the milestones that startups must achieve to secure them.

In this growing gap, are hundreds of startups every year, some with amazing teams and products - which need that last push to reach their next funding milestones.

It's all about crossing the chasm.

Companies that successfully cross the gap, by either raising a round, or launching a successful token sale, see the fastest growth in valuation and are best positioned for long term success.

We have built an investment algorithm and a set of filters to find companies in the gap that are most likely to reach that next stage. We will fund them, and help them close that series A round, or launch a successful token sale.
