Darwin fund of funds invest in top-tier, US based, early-stage venture capital funds diversified across industry sectors focused on technology, information technology, and healthcare. Individual and institutional investors often lack access to top-tier funds, face minimum investment requirements, and the limited diversification within a single venture capital fund make it a less than ideal investment. We provide top-tier venture capital investing with diversification, scaling, and administrative and cost effectiveness.
Darwin fund of funds evaluate numerous factors when investing: past performance, managerial and technology experience, team cohesion, alignment of limited partner and general partner interests, and a firm’s standing within the venture capital and entrepreneurial community. Investments are chosen in an effort to maximize returns while minimizing risk.
Diversification is a critical component of our investment strategy. We allocate investments across industry sectors – technology, information technology, healthcare, and across vintage years. Investments across vintage years lessen the risk attributable to funds of a single vintage year and provide access to top-tier venture firms that may not be fundraising in a given year.
Through these strategies, we provide a venture capital investment with a lower risk profile than investing in a single venture capital fund. This allows for returns in line with top-tier venture capital funds.
