Our VaaS model better aligns interests between stakeholders, through a powerful incentives and rewards engine.
We propose an alternative to the 2/20 model that better aligns interests between LPs and VCs. Instead, we charge nothing to LPs that choose to back us.
Co-investors and LPs have the option of joining the Colony just like the founders we invest with. Being open is the best way to foster support and knowledge.
Members of our colony which includes founders, venture scouts and other VCs share in the Colony profits based on their relative contributions and influence.
We work with a limited number of accredited co-investors. If you're interested in investing with us, either as an LP or co-investor, apply below.
To join our syndicate, you must be an accredited investor located in the United States or Europe. It's designed for venture firms, accelerators, family offices, high net worth individuals or fund of funds.
We see ourselves as part of the startup team and get paid in cash, equity or both for completing various tasks that support the support to raise capital and scale. Startups must agree to pay a % of the funds raised as well as equity in their startup to the Colony, which they are also part of.
Tasks are distributed to colony members based on their skills sets, reputation and permissions. The types of tasks include everything that you would expect from a typical VC firm including reviewing pitch decks, interviewing founders, attending board meetings, writing blog posts etc.
Whenever there is a liquidity event, such as when a portfolio company is sold or some other revenue generating activity occurs, distributions are made to Colony members according to the reputation they hold within the Colony.
We currently back pre Series B startups located in Europe. The diversity of our Colony members means that we're able to work with startups across every industry and business model. It's always best to reach out to us through a mutual connection but if you don't have one, you can also reach out here.
Every colony member, including founders, venture scouts and investors are financially incentivised to refer quality deals. Their associated payouts are linked to their activity and reputation, which in turn is linked to their performance at referring deals.
When members complete tasks in the Colony, they also earn an equivalent amount of reputation points. Reputation is not transferable between accounts, and slowly decays over time. This decay ensures that any reputation a member has is as a result of recent behaviour deemed beneficial to the colony.
The Colony includes a broad mix of experienced portfolio managers. Initially, the portfolio managers are voted upon by the syndicate backers. All portfolio managers are rated and reviewed by Colony members, including Co-investors to ensure quality consistency.
