The mission of the Venture Club is to provide this community with a digital home to share and collaborate on business and investment opportunities. By spreading the dollars out across 10,000 people, we can have a standing chest of money to easily say yes without having to rely on individuals to push the investments forward. As we make progress together, we all see benefits together as a Community.
Carry is a common part of compensation in the world of private equity and venture capital. The Community will share a 20% carried interest in the successful performance of the Community Fund. This means that once the initial $10,000,000 investment principal is returned, the community will share 20% of the additional investment proceeds.
Ex. $10,000,000 invested returns $50,000,000. The initial $10,000,000 investment is returned to start a new fund and 20% of the $40,000,000 proceeds ($8,000,000) is airdropped to the Community.
There are only a few stipulations to be eligible for investment from the Community.
1) You must be an active community member
2) You must have a direct affiliation with the mission of the club (student, faculty, or alumnus)
3) There is a clear path to returning the investment capital on fair market terms
Knightley is a web3 community platform with tools designed to help entrepreneurs build and invest in businesses in a collaborative environment. Knightley rewards members with a limited supply utility token each month for putting energy into the clubs and being helpful. These tokens can be used to join new clubs or be redeemed for partner products and services.
Participation in club activities is totally at-will and we believe that the more you put in, the more you’ll get out of the Community. That is why we chose the Knightley platform which has a built-in rewards system for member helpfulness.
Students are a pillar of the Venture Club Ecosystem. We’ve set aside 500 memberships for students to work alongside us. Contact the community manager to learn more about the application.
The Venture Club is built on-top of the Knightley Platform which does use blockchain technology to verify ownership of memberships and makes for easier distribution of investment carry.
Yes! Anyone regardless of experience or expertise is invited to join the club. If you haven't angel invested before, we can help you get started. Some investments may be limited to Accredited Investors, but all members will earn carry for being active members.
