The Power of an Evergreen 
Fund-of-VC-Funds
Technology investing consistently outperforms other asset classes, driving global innovation. However, venturing into Venture Capital funds is intricate due to the vast range in return profiles, the fragmentation of over 10k unstructured fund opportunities worldwide, limited access, and the sizeable long-term capital commitments across vintages required for diversification. We are solving this.

Expert-Driven, Strategic Fund Selection
Anticipating technology shifts and selecting the next generation of outlier funds among thousands of fund opportunities globally, comes at high research and assessment costs. Especially as many high performing funds are often small, hard to access, oversubscribed and spread around the globe. Our own technology and our experienced team are 100% focussed on VC investments. We are long-term partners to our investors, and they trust us that together we can achieve more than they could alone.

Instant Diversification, Lower Risk
Investing in single funds comes at significant risk. Only ~50% of VC funds actually return their capital. Yet, VC is one of the best performing asset classes, as the outliers significantly outperform. Fund-of-VC-Funds have shown a lower than 1% total loss risk vs. >24% loss risk of direct fund investing. By carefully investing continuously in every vintage and across fund types, geographies and sectors, we offer a portfolio of outlier VC funds with hundreds of underlying startups. This allows for VC exposure with a balanced risk-return profile.

Better Access, Fewer Constraints
Specialized in getting allocation others can't. The best VC funds on the globe are either oversubscribed or under the radar. With our DNA for good, value-add approach and structure of being a reliable source of capital, we are positioned as a preferred LP towards high performing fund managers. May it be to oversubscribed established funds, funds with high entry barriers or under the radar emerging funds before they become renowned brands. Replicating our diversified portfolio would require millions of dollars in capital and years of work for single investors.

High Returns, Exceeding Expectations
Did you know that Fund-of-VC-Funds in North America have performed 12% better than direct fund investments? In addition, around 90% of investors say that Fund-of-VC-Funds meet or outperform their expectations, vs. only 78% saying this about their direct fund investments. It requires years of experience, technology, data, market access, deal making and hard everyday work to specialize on selecting future top-performing funds at higher rates than others. At AQVC, we aim for a portfolio consistently outperforming market benchmarks.
Exceptional Historic Performance
Being the key driver for innovation and progress, VC outperformed other asset classes over the past decades.

Low VC experience

VC is a complex, risky and difficult to enter as an asset class. Many investors love to access VC with us, because we bring the experience, know-how, technology and drive to give them simple & risk balanced exposure to the asset class and its best funds. In addition we help them to learn and grow.

Chat Icon

High VC experience

You guys know what you are doing, but we can often fill in some blind spots in your portfolio strategy that you dont cover. As we focus on small, early stage, unknown, but still very talented and future technology driven funds we can bring some puzzle pieces to the table that will enrich your existing portfolio blend. On top we might help you with some great deal flow, network and other expertise.

Family offices & HNWI

Most of you don't have the time, the team or the know-how to select the best funds or startups. Often investment decision are taken emotional and not strategic, nor data-driven. This sadly can result in losses and then disappointments with the asset class. We are your ideal partner to build your exposure, experience and know-how about the VC asset class.

Light Bulb

Institutional

Most of you need to write big tickets that typical early-stage VC funds bellow 250mio can not absorb. Especially the small but very attractive emerging funds that focus on new technology, climate or new ecosystems. We can help you allocate these larger tickets into meaningful smaller ones. In addition we can help you to stay on top of the technology that is changing the world and most likely also your industry. Some of you are looking for tailored strategies. We can do that too.

Book Open Icon

Anyone else

We are a great solution for everyone who believes in wealth creation from technology, the importance of Venture Capital, who is looking for high performance at reasonable risk, who appreciates diversification, who doesn't have the access & know  that we have, and who cant do it himself as good as we can do it for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is AQVC?

AlphaQ Venture Capital (AQVC) provides semi-liquid exposure to some of the best early-stage technology funds in the U.S., Europe, and Israel. Collectively, our portfolio generates the highest-yielding diversified exposure to early-stage ventures. We commit early and work closely with our VCs as long-term, trusted partners. We are a dedicated team with +20-year experience in technology as startup founders, VCs, and fund of funds investors. Our vision is to democratize diversified access to innovation and create wealth for generations to come. We lower the high barriers to entering an illiquid market, reduce complexity, and mitigate risks by fund diversification. Enabling investors starting from € 200k to invest through a single stock in a diversified and actively managed portfolio of top-performing VC funds. Investors enjoy seamless investing through our stock-based structure, allowing easy investment or share sale. Our evergreen fund offers quarterly closings and various liquidity options. As a shareholder of a German InvAG (stock corporation), you benefit from direct investments from the balance sheet. Returns are distributed as dividends or share buybacks, with the added option of full recycling for attractive long-term compounding effects. Top-quartile VC funds consistently outperform public indexes and other alternatives. Identifying and accessing those top managers, therefore, is critical to success. Investing in top-tier VC funds can yield superior risk-adjusted returns. That's how pension funds and endowments continue to outperform traditional stock and bond portfolios. Now, it’s your turn.

The experienced AQVC team, with over two decades in technology and VC, enhances their ability to identify and invest in promising early-stage funds.
