Tusk Venture Partners, the now six-year-old New York-based early-stage venture capital firm co-founded by longtime political strategist Bradley Tusk and former Blackstone executive Jordan Nof, has closed its third fund with $140 million in capital commitments. That’s double the $70 million the company raised for its second flagship fund, which closed in late 2019. (The company then closed its first opportunity fund to invest more in its breakout portfolio companies.) at the end of last year with $60 million.)

The company says it has now invested in more than 50 startups in total, leading 20% ​​of those rounds and seeing 12 exits in the process.

A few of its biggest successes include crypto exchange Coinbase, which went public via a direct listing last year; the Lemonade insurance platform, which went public in the summer of 2020; and FanDuel, which was acquired in 2020 by sports betting, gaming and entertainment company Flutter.

Tusk Venture Partners has seen enough momentum that the company recently doubled the size of its investment team. In addition to Tusk and Nof, Michaela Balderston, a communications professional who joined the firm early on, was promoted to partner and joined the firm’s investment committee. Tusk Venture Partners has also recruited Brad Welch, who recently joined as a partner Morpheus Ventures in Los Angeles, where he was a partner.

All four are now based in New York, although Tusk Venture Partners is more of a bi-coastal firm. Nof says 40% of companies bet on the West Coast, 40% on the East Coast and 20% elsewhere, with holding companies in Boulder, Colorado and Austin, Texas, among others.

Among those portfolio companies, Tusk Venture Partners — like every other venture capital firm right now — has stakes in hot startups whose valuations can fluctuate as the markets zigzag and zag. One such bet is Circle Internet Financial. In February, the crypto company agreed to a new merger with a SPAC that valued the company at $9 billion, double its valuation under the previous deal. But crypto valuations have been plummeting across the board for the past few weeks, and this deal is still “ongoing,” Nof notes.

The company also has a stake in telemedicine company Ro, which was valued by its backers at $7 billion in February, but has had its ups and downs internally, as TechCrunch previously reported here and here. With close rival Hims, which went public through a SPAC in January 2021, now boasting a market cap of $800 million (down from $1.6 billion at the time of the SPAC merger), it’s conceivable that Ro is impacted by these two internal and external factors.

Tusk Venture Partners – which says it routinely uses its policy expertise to help startups navigate regulatory barriers – was also an early investor in micromobility company Bird, which captured national attention with its laudable electric scooters. in 2017 and was valued at $2.5 billion. at the start of 2020. The company, which went public late last year through a SPAC, has seen its market capitalization drop to $290 million, with shares trading at $1 in when we type.

For his part, Nof says he’s neither surprised nor overly concerned about the current downturn. “I think the market has the moment it has needed for a long time.”

Tusk himself adds that market fluctuations aside, the plan continues to invest in the broader company’s four favorite categories, writing initial checks for up to $7 million from his new fund. to “fintech, which can range from all things crypto, NFT, DeFi to insurance; digital health; transportation; and games. We occasionally invest in something outside of these four areas,” he adds, “but if you’ve gone through all of our investments, almost all of them fall into these categories.

Among Tusk Venture Partners’ most recent deals is Allocate, a San Francisco-based digital investment platform for investors to access venture funds and co-investments that announced $15.3 million. in Series A funding earlier this month, led by M13.

In March, the company also led a deal on Radish Health, a New York-based healthcare platform for city governments and midsize businesses, which raised $4 million in seed funding.

TechCrunch also recently covered another investment from Tusk Venture Partners: Landline, a four-year-old Fort Collins, Colorado-based transportation startup that aims to distribute the airline check-in process by processing people in many smaller hubs closer to home long before they arrive at their departure gate.

According to the latest VenturePulse survey from the Irish Venture Capital Association (IVCA) published in association with law firm William Fry.

However, the value of deals in all categories below €10 million, including seed funding, fell by 30-50%, which IVCA chairman Nicola McClafferty called “potentially disturbing”. The overall number of transactions fell by nearly a third to 50 from 74 in the same period last year.

Ms McClafferty said: “All the growth came from eight deals worth over €10m each, three of which were over €30m. While the momentum carried over from last year continued for more established companies raising big rounds, some of that momentum seems to have stalled for early-stage companies.

“The venture capital industry around the world experienced a downturn in the first quarter due to an uncertain global economic outlook and the war in Ukraine. While difficult market conditions may persist, we also know that many large companies are created and built during downturns, so we look forward to data for the next few quarters.

The value of transactions between 5 and 10 million euros fell by 51% to reach 11 million euros. Transactions between 1 and 5 million euros also halved, from 70.3 million euros to 34.5 million euros in the same period last year. Transactions below 1 million euros fell 31% to 8.9 million euros.

Sarah-Jane Larkin, chief executive of the IVCA, noted that 79% of funding came from international sources in the first quarter. “While this is to be welcomed and underscores the quality of Irish tech companies and their appeal to international investors, we have previously expressed concern about where any shortfalls would be made up if the global economy were to contract,” she said.

Ms Larkin pointed out that seed funding in the first quarter had fallen by almost 40% to 22.3 million euros against 36.5 million euros the previous year, making the announcement by the government in February d a new €90 million Irish seed fund program for the Irish. “particularly opportune” start-ups.

The top deals in the first quarter were two Irish unicorns: fintech company Wayflyer, which raised €134m, and digital food ordering platform Flipdish, which raised €94m. Envirotech Exergyn raised 32.7 million euros.

Investment products, from vanilla common stock PMS funds to complicated alternative investment products, long-term debt funds, private equity, venture capital and even peer-to-peer lending are now structured in the context of the “investment commitments” received from the bulging family in parentheses pools of offices.

But what makes family offices (FOs) the favorites is critical long-term capital with investment horizons of 6-10 years. These large pools of family capital are now managed by young descendants of wealthy business families. They are more adventurous with riskier investments such as seed-stage startups, unlisted companies, early-stage venture capital funds, and greenfield real estate projects.

“Family offices tend to be opportunistic and nimble. They seek asymmetric returns and the only way to achieve that is to invest across asset classes. In our family office, we invest across all asset classes. assets and over all durations,” said Gaurav Burman, Director of Dabur. International and fifth generation manager of the family investment program.

A leading sustainable consumer company has decided to co-invest in startups, private companies and venture capital funds. “It gave us access to those businesses and as we liked the business we took a substantial equity stake from the developers. When you cross a certain size it makes sense to acquire smaller businesses that can be put on the market ‘scale, and the largest distribution network parent company can scale it,’ said the leading third-generation promoter who runs the family office.

In the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, the next generation is working on R&D, smaller molecules and higher margin molecules. These are smaller companies, incubated separately and once they reach size, they are acquired by the company. “So we work with these boutique businesses and once they reach scale, we either integrate them or sell them separately,” the Mumbai-based family office member said.

Traditionally, decision making in business families belonged to the family patriarch or ‘elders’.


Broader asset allocation

“Given limited exposure to new asset classes, they would steer clear of more ‘exotic’ options such as PE/VC – which was totally off limits,” says Rishabh Mariwala, founder and director of Sharrp Ventures, who is part of the Mariwala Family Office.

“However, there are a few changes happening in these businesses… First, there is more liquidity for these business families now. Second, the new generation members of these families are exposed to new classes The founder is then pushed to evaluate opportunities that he might not have considered ten years ago,” he adds.

The emergence of “wealth-tech” allows these traditional business families to self-assess their investment options. This has caused traditional business families to embrace asset allocation on a larger scale.

“Put simply, gold and real estate are no longer as exciting as they used to be. This forces these families to assess where they are investing,” adds Mariwala.

A report by 256 Network and Praxis Global Alliance India revealed that family offices are emerging as an important source of funding for startups in India. They have already invested more than 5 billion dollars and this figure should be multiplied by 5 to reach 30 billion dollars by 2025. There are currently at least 150 single family offices, compared to 40 three years ago.

“Next-generation family members are managing family office investments, especially in the new-age digital and technology solutions space. With many next-generation members reluctant to join legacy businesses and their inclination nature, interests and exposure towards all that digital can be leveraged,” said Nupur Pavan Bang, Associate Director, Thomas Schmidheiny Center for Family Enterprise, Indian School of Business.

The venture capital market is showing early signs of weakness.

Although market turmoil has yet to affect deal sizes and valuations at all venture capital stages, the average valuation before late-stage silver has declined from 2021 highs, according to the PitchBook’s VC Valuations report released Thursday. Specifically, the median size of late-stage venture capital deals increased from $134 million in 2021 to $110.3 million at the end of the first quarter of 2022.

PitchBook analyst Kyle Stanford, the author of the report, wrote that the late-stage drop in valuations points to a potential problem: while deals are still being closed, deals with the highest valuations are most vulnerable to macroeconomic problems such as inflation, rising interest rates, geopolitical uncertainty and the technology bubble. Indeed, these companies are generally closer to the public market and tend to feel the effects of economic problems before other companies.

“VC is facing the onslaught of economic headwinds plaguing every other market at the same time, and for many reasons this feels like real market change,” Stanford wrote in an email. “Valuations are set to fall and deal sizes will likely pull back from the highs of the past two [of] years.”

While median deal size contracted from 2021 to the first quarter of 2022, Stanford noted that it will be some time — perhaps not before the end of the year — before the macro issues trickle down. completely on the data. However, he also noted that the venture capital market has a few tricks up its sleeve to protect itself from public market volatility. For example, there is a massive amount of dry powder in mega funds. PitchBook cited a total of $100 million or more in dry powder that is ready to fund late-stage deals.

Another positive point is the large number of venture capital funds in the market and the fundraising events that will take place throughout the year. Stanford said that since the start of 2020, nearly 2,000 venture capital funds have been raised in the United States “That’s more than [the number that] closed during the seven-year period from 2006 to 2013,” he said. “Although we expect fundraising to slow in the second half of 2022, the market is looking at somewhere around 3,000 funds still in their investment window.”

For this reason, late-stage companies could benefit from a soft landing, especially if they raised capital in recent quarters when the market was booming.

Here are some proofs. Although IPOs have not offered the same opportunities as in 2021, valuation increases (i.e. an increase in a company’s pre-money valuation between rounds of financing) at output remained high in the first quarter. The report says the median increase for the first quarter of 2022 remains one of the highest in PitchBook’s dataset.

While late-stage exit valuations have declined from 2021 to 2022, median exit valuations reached $90 million in the first quarter, an increase of $14 million from any annual figure in the PitchBook dataset. This is important because while some companies exit at higher valuations, many others exit closer to the median valuation.

“Continued headwinds may drive this figure down,” Stanford wrote, “but for now, the core of the venture capital-backed exit market has continued to produce.”

Fundraising by China-focused private equity investors has fallen to its lowest level in 13 years, as the country’s early start-up scene backers grapple with a tech crackdown from Beijing and zero Covid policies.

Venture capital and private equity funds focusing on the Greater China region raised just $1.7 billion in the first quarter of 2022, according to estimates from industry data provider Preqin, down from more than 90% over one year. It is the smallest gain since the depths of the global financial crisis in 2009.

The sharp drop in fundraising by the kind of early-stage investors that helped Alibaba and Tencent become global brands underscored growing uncertainty about how to operate in China.

Since the start of a regulatory crackdown by the country’s government last summer, top officials have discouraged disruptive profit-seeking by fast-growing start-ups and imposed stringent security reviews. These restrictions have halted most offshore listings until Chinese regulators release more details on the rules for foreign IPOs.

Fund managers said the sharp drop in fundraising reflected growing difficulties faced by private investment groups – especially foreign companies – as Beijing sought to better monitor the markets.

“This is a significant change,” said William Bao Bean, general partner of global venture capital firm SOSV, adding that early-stage foreign investment in China had entered a “period of uncertainty” after a wave of successful fund closures in the first half of 2021.

Investor concerns have been heightened by Chinese leaders’ strict adherence to a zero-Covid policy, which led to a more than five-week lockdown in Shanghai, the country’s financial capital, and caused severe economic disruption. Weijian Shan, whose private equity group PAG manages more than $50 billion, said in a recent video-recorded meeting that the actions of Chinese leaders “have caused real damage to the market and the economy.”

President Xi Jinping reiterated his opposition to what regulators called a “disorderly expansion of capital” at a recent meeting of senior Chinese Communist Party officials. Xi told politburo members meeting in Beijing late last month that capital that seeks only profits without regulation or restriction would cause “immeasurable damage” to China and that rules were needed to guide its “development.” healthy”.

Regulatory power has been expanded to allow for greater scrutiny of foreign investment, with a particular focus on “capital penetration”, or the ultimate source of funding for Chinese companies, especially those that play a role in the drive to technological independence from Beijing.

“Strategic or sensitive sectors [in China] have never welcomed foreign investment,” Bao Bean said, “and that list has grown.”

Mumbai: The government will let venture capital (VC) and private equity (PE) funds take a higher share of profits, earn more fees and opt for faster withdrawal of the money they receive from the fund. state funds.

The Startup Fund of Funds (FFS) was introduced in 2016, to contribute to various alternative investment funds (AIFs) registered with the capital market regulator Sebi.

The FFS, managed by the state-controlled Small Industries Development Bank of India (Sidbi), has invested more than Rs 9,400 crore in 86 AIFs (the regulatory term for PE and VC funds).

Sidbi is the largest limited partner or investor in the country contributing capital to venture capital and private equity funds.

In a letter dated April 29, 2022, Sidbi told AIFs it would allow “accelerated drawdowns” of money committed by the FFS while fund managers earn an internal rate of return (IRR) above the rate of hurdle – the minimum return a fund has to point before profits can be shared between investors and the fund manager.

“These are concrete steps to ensure that FFS investments in qualifying Indian AIFs can be on better commercial terms in terms of management fees, interest carried for qualified and successful fund managers, while offering more flexibility to fund managers in their time. – current operations. Sidbimanaged FFS has been one of the largest domestic institutional investors in Indian venture capital funds and the liberalization of many existing onerous conditions in investment agreements will help bring these conditions into line with those prevailing globally,” said Tejesh Chitlangi, Senior Partner, IC Universal Legal.

Since OFIs are often slow to raise capital from other investors, a faster withdrawal of funds committed by the FFS will ensure that the trading capacity of OFIs is not hampered.

The “carry” or profit share (once the fund’s IRR crosses the minimum rate) is usually in an 80:20 ratio, with 20% going to the manager. The FFS is now ready to pass on 25% of the additional returns (beyond the new IRR) if the IRR exceeds 25%. The carry portion would be 30% (of the incremental return) if the fund achieves an IRR above 30%.

FFS, per Sidbi’s letter, will consider paying higher management fees after taking an overview of total spend, and if a fund is female-led, focus on female-led startups , priority areas, agro-rural sector, finance and inclusion and is committed to investing in level 2 and -3 centers. The FFS is also open for investment in funds above Rs 1,000 crore corpus as long as the investment manager of a fund is a domestic entity, key persons or managers have managed funds in which Sidbi is was engaged in the past, and that the exposure is capped at the same level as that applicable for a fund with a corpus of Rs 1,000 crore.

In 2020, cybersecurity startups raised $8.9 billion and in 2021 that number has grown to over $21 billion.

A recent report by risk-based vulnerability management firm NopSec investigated how much of that funding went to women-led businesses. They collected and analyzed 654 cybersecurity startups that raised over $1,000,000 in funding in 2020 and 2021.

The finding: of the 654 startups analyzed, only 22 — or 3.3% — were led by female CEOs.

Lisa Xu, CEO of NopSec, commented on the report, “As a female CEO of a cybersecurity company myself, I was curious to know the answer to this question. There are dozens of articles talking about the need to involve more women in cybersecurity and many of these companies celebrated International Women’s Day on social media. But I haven’t seen any hard numbers showing how many startups in the industry raising capital are led by women. With only 3% of companies run by women, do we really wonder why we have a problem of gender diversity in cybersecurity? What are we actually doing to solve this problem? Is there real progress being made to address this? »

Lisa argues that to attract more women into cyber, we not only need to increase recruitment at every stage, but focus on women in leadership roles, especially CEOs.

Fintech and Fractional Home Equity Lender Indicate raised an additional $115 million through a Series C fundraising round led by a venture capital firm West Cape.

The capital will be used to accelerate Point’s growth in the $25 trillion real estate market, according to company co-founder and CEO Eddie Lim. Point, based in Palo Alto, Calif., plans to use the funding to expand its product line as well as its market footprint – from 16 existing states and the District of Columbia to 28 markets over the next year.

Point has raised around $54 million in venture capital in three previous funding rounds, according to business news platform Crunchbase. The venture capital investment is in addition to $1 billion in separate capital commitments from investors Point has lined up to help fund what it calls Home Equity Investment Deeds (HEI ).

“We expect this additional capital to accelerate our growth as we help cash-strapped homeowners and buyers establish financial stability and realize their financial dreams,” Lim said.

Point’s HEI contracts – which have 10- or 30-year maturities, the latter being standard since early 2020 – deal with many variables in a complex and nuanced housing market. The general premise, however, is that Point provides the owner with a cash advance in exchange for a contract providing the business with a slice of the owner’s equity. This share is generally around 10%.

In addition, Point obtains a reduction – up to a predefined ceiling – in the future appreciation of the house after making a downward adjustment of 15% to 20% of the market value of the house at the time of the signing of the HEI contract to reflect its risk. Point also shares some of the downside risk with the homeowner if the price of the home drops.

Homeowners, in turn, can cash out some of the equity in their home with no payments due until the contract matures. There are no prepayment penalties, and the gain is realized through a home sale, refinance, or after the HEI contract has otherwise been redeemed by the homeowner.

Existing investors also participated in Point’s latest Series C funding round Andreessen Horowitz, Ribbit Capital, redwood trust, Atalaya Capital Management and DAG Ventures — with new investors Management of the deer park path, The Palisades Group and Alpaca VC.

Last year, the investor Redwood and Point, the latter founded in 2014, carried out an unprecedented securitization backed by HEI contracts. The private label securities (PLS) transaction, which closed in late September 2021, involved the issuance of $146 million of securities through a conduit dubbed Point Securitization Trust 2021-1.

The unrated PLS offering was structured in two tiers – with $120 million of unrated Tier A-1 senior notes and approximately $26 million of unrated Tier A-2 securities. Bo Stern, head of portfolio strategy and risk for Redwood, previously said that security holders receive a monthly coupon on cash flows generated from HEI contract payments.

Earlier this year, a San Francisco-based fintech company Unison completed a $443 million private label offering backed by fractional ownership assets – in which investors and owners share both the ups and downs of a property’s value over time. Similar to Point, Unison, through its fintech platform, offers homeowners the ability to tap into their home’s equity without taking out a loan – through Unison’s equity-shared product called a Residential Equity Deal ( REA).

Another company at the forefront of the fractional stock market is Vesta Equity, which offers a platform for real estate investments using blockchain and tokenization, with tokens, or NFTs, backed by verified real estate. Transactions are made in stablecoins which can be converted into US dollars or another government-backed currency known as fiat.

Vesta, like Point and Unison, allows owners to sell a percentage of their capital – in Vesta’s case, funded by stable investors. In exchange, owners can use the funds as they see fit while retaining all rights to their property. When the house is sold, the percentage of equity acquired by the investors is paid to them via Vesta Equity.

“Most Americans have the majority of their wealth tied up in their homes, which limits their ability to cover unexpected expenses or diversify their wealth,” said Laurence Tosi, founder and managing partner of WestCap. “Point has created… [a] solution that allows homeowners to use the equity in their home to eliminate debt, overcome periods of financial hardship and unlock new opportunities for wealth without taking the risk of traditional term loans.
