We are giving investors an opportunity to own equity at a founder level in a way that is otherwise pretty much impossible.
(PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Founder Equity, was one of the presenting companies interviewed by FSXinterlinked host, Michael Fugler, at the recent FSXinterlinked Investment Conference, held at the Four Seasons at Westlake Village, California.
Founder Equity invests in early stage digital communities and platforms that have high growth potential, and a strong opportunity for strategic liquidity within two years. They eliminate time wasted raising capital, unnecessary risk-taking, and other structural weaknesses, which captures more value for everyone involved.
During the interview Founder Equity's Partner, Joe Dwyer, said "We are giving investors an opportunity to own equity at a founder level in a way that is otherwise pretty much impossible."
"We target web and mobile communities. These are engaged users, wether they are business or consumers is less important, because our background is building, growing and selling digital communities. We focus on communities that engage users around common interests, life events, etc., they are likely to be of interest to strategic acquirers." continued Mr. Dwyer. "An example of one of our very popular communities is called SmartMom. It's one of the divisions of one of our portfolio companies and it is designed to engage new moms around asking and answering questions about their kids. It is currently growing about 5% compounding daily."
"This exclusive interview is available only on interlinked." stated Delray Wannemcaher, interlinked President & CEO.
Founder Equity has no management fees or carry, unlike venture capital funds, which typically take 20% (2% x 10 years) off the top as management fee, plus another 20% from the back-end as carry.
Founder Equity takes advantage of the resulting early stage hole in the market to find fantastic undervalued assets. They seek businesses with high “growth stage” liquidity potential, inject a mix of money and a seasoned team over 18-24 months, and then seek liquidity instead of “swinging-for-the-fences.” The goal is quicker value creation, reduced risk, greater efficiency, and faster liquidity.
