Vested is VC investing reimagined
Unique diversification
Vested samples the VC asset class across stages and sectors. This broad diversification helps avoid the concentration risk typical of most venture investments.3
Curated for performance
Vested’s proprietary, “big” data analytics combine VC, valuation growth, financing term, company composition, and seller behavior data into a model that could help Vested avoid the “fat tail” of company failures common in most venture funds.
Value investment
By helping employees, Vested acquires common stock near the fair market value. This is a substantial discount to what VCs pay. This positions Vested to seek to significantly outperform median returns from the VC asset class.
