Data driven approach
Startup companies are first mentored to hit strategic milestones such as proving the business model on a small scale then scaled with proven mass user acquisition strategies. This creates a self-filtering investment model that allows the Fund to invest in companies that have the highest chance of success.
The Fund starts by making many small investments into promising startup companies that have developed a product people love and have proven user acquisition at a small scale.
Portfolio companies then get access to training and resources to scale their user base with proven mass user acquisition systems to substantially increase the valuation of the portfolio company and position it for an exit.
