In the effort to expand growth and innovation capital, drive future value creation, and democratize related wealth creation, AQVC is a to-be-listed stock company investing in the best and most promising Venture Capital funds around the globe. We research, evaluate and invest capital in VC funds to generate excess returns above traditional asset classes while driving real-world impact and entrepreneurship. We have exclusive access to leading, emerging, and micro funds that have generated ~30% IRR in past generations. We aim to overcome liquidity, collateralization, and transparency constraints of the >$600B p.a. non-public and complex venture capital market. Through the simple purchase of our stocks, investors participate in an actively managed & diversified portfolio of leading VC funds, hundreds of underlying disruptive startups, and world-changing technology.

“Venture Capital is fuel to tackle global challenges”

To tackle our pressing global challenges, venture capital will become even more important in the future than it has been. Any progress of our societies and of humankind have always been driven by capitalizing the visions of great Inventors & Entrepreneurs. May it be the emergence of electricity, computers, vaccines, or the internet, nothing of this would exist without venture capital financing and taking the risk to turn big visions improving the world into becoming a reality.

“Venture Capital must gain more exposure, especially in Europe.”

Besides its fundamental importance for progress, VC has shown steady and significant returns over decades, rewarding investors taking a risk and shaping a better world. However, many asset managers (especially in Europe) do not understand the importance and the return potentials of venture capital enough. We are driven to close the massive lack of innovation & growth capital, especially in Europe. Innovation & growth financing in the USA is ~10x higher per capita than in Germany. German innovation & growth financing in percent of real GDP has declined from ~4% p.A. in 1950-1970 to ~1% in 2000-2020. In order to remain competitive and protect our current prosperity in a competitive global market, we must be willing to invest far more into innovation & growth capital

Our Core Values

Many of the best ideas and startups never come to fruition because of a lack of venture capital. Our world-class team is trying to solve this and help drive more allocation and innovation in the asset class, the startup ecosystem and help to create wealth for generations. To this end, we have created clear company values that define our behavior:

Passion

We roll up our sleeves to invest for a better future. We find purpose by investing in great assets, developing them, and generating exceptional returns for our stakeholders over time. We are enthusiastic about rational, analytical, and thoughtful decisions, making our investments highly aligned with all interests of our stakeholders.

Integrity

We base all our relationships on trust, compassion, transparency, openness, correctness, honesty, care and respect while taking full ownership of what we do. Leaders of integrity and character do not step aside when the bus is bearing down on their people, rather they step to the front. Often taking the brunt of the force to protect those they serve.

Excellence

We want to win as a team, and champions behave like champions before they're champions: they have exceptionally high standards, professionalism, strive for success, empower team behavior, and are committed to continuously learning and making things better. All while staying humble, challenging oneself and putting the work in that is necessary. Mastery, ruthless prioritization and working smarter and harder than others makes us win for our stakeholders every day.

Many of the best ideas and visions are never realized because of a lack of venture & growth capital. Let's change that.
