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.
