Now that you have run a company (or two) or otherwise developed significant market insight, you are looking to leverage your experience by forming a venture fund and investing in the next generation of success stories. What should you do next? How do you form a venture fund? Will the market be receptive to a first-time fund?

Forming a first-time venture fund can be a lengthy and costly process, but armed with the right information and a clear strategy, you can minimize the investments of cost and time while building a successful brand and participating in opportunities during the formation process.

Please join us for a Foley Executive Briefing Series program that will address issues you need to know when forming your first venture capital fund. The following topics will be examined in detail:

  • The critical steps involved in forming a traditional venture fund
  • The economics of a venture fund, including current trends
  • Intermediate steps for gaining investor confidence and building a track record
  • The use of creative “fund-like” investment vehicles
  • Avoiding common pitfalls

These and other issues will be addressed in an informal, interactive panel session led by Foley Business Law attorneys Kenneth R. Appleby and David W. Kantaros.

For questions about registering, please contact Wendy Decker at wdecker@foley.com or 617.342.4000.

First-Time Venture Funds: The Traditional Approach and Creative Alternatives is part of the Foley Executive Briefing Series. Learn more about upcoming programs in the series at Foley.com/FEBS.
