The new co-investment fund is aimed at improving early phase funding and allowing VC’s to participate with a simple and cost effective model for finding great investment opportunities and managing multiple investments in these startups. The process which will be enabled by the Grow VC platform emphasizes transparency and helps VC’s make investments and reach out to a global range of innovative early stage startups . This virtual co-investment fund is designed to work alongside Grow VC’s community funding model and private investors and a startup must first collect enough funding from the Grow VC member base before the fund can make a co-investment.

IndiaCo a leading investment management firm from India is the first partner to come aboard the fund and participate in the concept; IndiaCo Ventures Limited is also a strategic investor in Grow VC. The firm which has committed to invest $5 million to the virtual fund will pave the way for other VC’s to join the fund. “India is one of the key markets for Grow VC and that’s why Grow VC decided to start to the concept there” says Jouko Ahvenainen Founder & Chairman at Grow VC. “Experienced firms like IndiaCo co-investing alongside private angel investors really offers the best performing options for early stage investments” he adds.

“The early stage startups space in India is an extremely exciting one and the virtual fund would open doors for VC’s to be a part of this promising market which has tremendous talent and potential given they get access to better funding options” states Rahul Patwardhan Vice Chairman and Managing Director at IndiaCo. “Additionally through the Grow VC model, we can extend our investments to other places around the world and get to be a part of the seed funding market elsewhere which essentially gives us access to a global pool of startups. There are cutting edge ideas being born right now on some entrepreneurs drawing board somewhere in the world and the Grow VC model helps us make sure we can be there for them when they need the funding.” Rahul says.

With a private investor and community funding model already in place for members, the new option of securing additional seed funding from VC ‘s is moving quickly with more fund managers expected to follow suit. “We are continuing to negotiate with various fund managers around the world that have indicated their interest to offer new models for investment to startups along with business angels and Grow VC community members” says Valto Loikanen Founder & CEO at Grow VC . “We want to make investing to new startups globally as easy as possible for everyone and are looking extend that possibility to all channels looking to do so” adds Valto.

The launch of the Virtual VC Co-investment Fund and the announcement of the partnership with IndiaCo as a first investor in the fund mark another step forward for Grow VC who are continuing to innovate the funding space for early stage startups and work towards creating a Virtual Silicon Valley for the worlds entrepreneurs.
