Venture capital funds are investment funds that manage the money of investors who seek private equity stakes in startup and small- to medium-sized enterprises with strong growth potential. Essentially, investors who invest in venture capital are seeking for a high-risk/return factor
Now, you might be thinking, if I like a potential startup, why not just invest directly with the company? Why should I go through a venture capital fund? There are several reasons why it makes sense to invest via a VC fund – some more obvious than others.
The Advantages of Entering a Venture Capital Fund via Secondary
Entering through a VC fund via secondary presents investors with many benefits that range from high expertise of the general partner and its network to a diversification effect. Furthermore, doing an investment via a secondary transaction often includes investing in an existing portfolio. This means most capital calls have already been made, which means that the invested capital is working and not just sitting on the sideline. It is important to know that an IRR overlooks capital which is not invested. This means that two funds with the same IRR have different returns depending on much capital has been called.
Together, these benefits present you with a fine opportunity to get in early on a wide variety of emerging startups and entrepreneurial endeavors and secure high returns through an aggregate venture capital fund with a discount.

With that said, there are several investors who are looking to rebalance their portfolio or must liquidate due to margin calls in their portfolio. Amongst other reasons, this is one of the events which could trigger primary venture capital investors to sell their stake in a secondary round with a significant discount.
