PROGRAMMES

OUR FOCUS

VSCPI focuses its investments in start ups at the idea stage and early stage companies who operate in our 15 verticals of investments. We support investments from seed up to Series A funding before exiting. Thus, we are able to fill the funding gap for companies seeking smaller amounts of capital in order to scale (under $500,000 per investment).

OUR PROCESS

As a global organization, our team shares knowledge, insights, and experiences across its team members.

Potential investments are identified through business plan submissions, referrals, or proactive research by our team. All investments go through an Initial Due Diligence process, where each opportunity is vetted and discussed. Investments that pass the initial deliberation stage are put through a rigorous Formal Due Diligence process. This entails a review of the applicant in the general areas of financial viability, operations, management, accounting and legal. A final discussion on the critical issues of the potential transaction is then conducted before the approval or rejection of investment opportunities.
