About the project Edit

In this hybrid VC Fund initiative, private investors are given the option to buy the share of the government at (or until) a specific point of time at predetermined price (typical nomincal price + interest).

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The effects on the rate of return of private investors (Limited Partners) are similar to the "capped return" structure.

However, there are 2 additional benefits:
1) the buy-out option gives both the public and the private investors (LP) an opportunity to demonstrate success earlier and more visibly than in the capped return alternative

2) in the case of success, government gets a quick exit from the Fund and can reinvest the money instead of waiting for the returns on fund termination (usually 10 years).
