It’s always been a dream to of mine to launch an investment fund focused on high growth Internet companies. Finally with the help of some great people, we have taken over the Future Capital Development Fund (see press article).
Our core focus will be to invest some “smart money” into smartly operated Internet businesses that want to grow. We will certainly be hands on helping grow the company, helping them raise further capital if required and then driving a trade sale. This helps provide liquidity for the original founders and provides for a capital gain on our investment if we do it right. Better still, any Capital Gains in our PDF are tax exempt (under the Pooled Development Fund Act 1992 – but i need to tell you; always seek your own financial and legal advice yadda yadda 🙂
If you have any ideas, why not drop me an email via this websites contact form. I will have an Information Memorandum (IM) available next week for any interested parties.
