FAQs

Why Venture Clubs Are a Great Opportunity to Invest with Your Friends and Colleagues

What are AVG Venture Clubs?

AVG Venture Clubs are groups of accredited investors who want to share the experience of evaluating venture deals together. Clubs must have a minimum of 3 members.

How do I create a Venture Club?

It’s easy. AVG does most of the work to help you organize. 1) A Club President connects with AVG to talk through the process. 2) Club President picks name, deal frequency, and target size and club membership. 3) AVG provides Club Presidents with materials to share with potential members and organizes a group call or meeting with AVG. 4) Establishing a club can take just a few weeks, with each member signing up for the AVG fund of his/her choice. 5) AVG provides a private online portal where the group can discuss their venture investments, review and score Syndication deals, and share other news.

What is an AVG Syndication Deal?

AVG offers Venture Club members access to our Syndications. This is the chance to opt into a deal being done by an AVG fund where we’ve negotiated extra allocation. Members can review our due diligence materials and decide if they want to invest in that particular deal. Members are invited to discuss and score deals in an AVG-provided private portal. The frequency of deal opportunities is up to the Club President, and exact timing and nature of the deal will vary.

What are the benefits of Clubs?

It starts with building a diversified venture portfolio by investing in any AVG fund. From there, Club members can review opt-in Syndication deals to supplement their venture portfolio. Other benefits may also apply depending on the size of your Club. Venture Clubs are intended to be an engaging and rewarding experience, with members learning together.
