Why become partner with STOAF – Start II
To invest in start-ups and market entry ventures means taking a substantial risk. Assessing the risk level and if the potential upside of an investment can compensate for the risks requires considerable experience, intuition, and knowledge and it can be difficult for the individual angel investor to invest while a venture is undervalued. We have therefore built our business model on the idea that every partner is able to take advantage of the significant inflow of objects, qualified knowledge, and lengthy experience in early stage investments as well as the not insignificant experience of looking after investments from an owners perspective. We are a qualified venture financing company operated by angel investors that encourages its partners to privately invest in ventures alongside the company’s investments.
When and how do I become a Partner?
We welcome new partners to invest starting 2013 in Start 2. We are looking for active partners, Competence Partners, that can invest both competence and capital to look after Start 2 as well as passive partners, Equity Partners, that will solely invest capital. Through our ongoing education and learn by doing training we review live cases that both Competence and Equity Partners participate to become better to risk assess. The STOAF’s portfolio is individually risk levelled and risk profiled based on Best Practice Venture Capital praxis. We are planning to close this portfolio for new investments during 2017/2018. Continued growth including continued investments is managed by the GP’s and Competence partners.
What is Risk?
Risk is the potential of gaining or losing something of value. Values (such as physical health, social status, emotional well-being or financial wealth) can be gained or lost when taking risk resulting from a given action or inaction, foreseen or unforeseen. Risk can also be defined as the intentional interaction with uncertainty. Uncertainty is a potential, unpredictable, and uncontrollable outcome; risk is a consequence of action taken in spite of uncertainty. Wikipedia
