How much risk is involved?
This segment of Asset Class, early stage startup companies, is considered to be very risky and it is possible for you to lose your entire investment given the very high risk. Prospective investors should give careful consideration to actual and potential risk factors and conflicts of interest discussed in the PPM in evaluating the merits and suitability of an investment in the fund. An investment in the fund, and the portfolio companies securities, involves considerable potential risks including the possible loss all or a material portion of your investment. You should closely review the written FundNV “Risk Factors” noted in the PPM when considering an investment in AngelNV.
Why should I invest in AngelNV?
First and foremost, we believe the AngelNV training, low cost, and risk mitigation will produce an competitive return over time. Additionally, AngelNV provides an opportunity to help develop a sustainable startup ecosystem throughout the state of Nevada that historically has been neglected by the venture industry. It is also an opportunity to attract scalable startup business and founders with big ideas to the state and build a more resilient state economy.
Where can I find information about this type of investment?
Typical sites that contain information about risks, returns, etc., are the Kauffman Foundation, Angel Capital Association, and the National Venture Capital Association. You can find out detailed information about AngelNV in the fund’s Private Placement Memorandum (PPM) on Glassboard. Please request access via email to email@example.com
What type of startups will the fund invest in?
AngelNV LP’s (members) make the final decisions about what company or companies receive investment. The AngelNV conference will seek applications from a wide array of scalable startup companies, primarily based in Southern Nevada.
Once I invest, may I withdraw my funds before the fund is terminated?
No. You should only consider investing if you are comfortable with potentially losing all of your investment — or not seeing any return for at least 7 years — and possibly closer to 10 years. The clear objective of any AngelNV conference fund is to earn a substantial return, however, investments in early-stage companies are risky. While we seek to mitigate that risk by providing education through the AngelNV conference, the investment risks remain very high.
Can I invest with IRA assets?
What type of legal entity is the fund?
It is a Nevada LLC
What kind of reporting will I get?
The fund is using the Assure Glassboard platform for all back-office reporting requirements. You will be able to access information via Glassboard including annual updates on fund investments.
Can I invest additional money as a Limited Partner (member) with the AngelNV?
Yes, to the extent the company seeking funding via the AngelNV requires additional capital and that company allows additional investment for the AngelNV via a “sidecar” mechanism.
As a Limited Partner, am I allowed to negotiate terms of the Limited Partnership agreement for the Fund?
No, the terms of the LP (LLC Member) agreement are set by Assure and cannot be modified.
What kind of returns can I expect?
What is the relationship between AngelNV and StartUpNV
