Disrupting Venture Capital with the Blockchain
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. 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.
The story of SPiCE actually started as a traditional VC fund, with a gap we identified in the tech investment market. A gap that would allow us to invest in amazing startups, just before the market realizes how great they are, and their value increases with a series A funding round, or more recently, with an ICO. We found that if we focus only on the startups in the gap that are most likely to reach the relevant milestones for an A-round or an ICO within 12-18 months, we could fund them at the right moment, help them secure that next financing event, and increase their valuation by 3-5x in a relatively short time.
