Two years into VC Platform 

Value creation for Inventure portfolio – how our platform works

Two years into VC Platform 

I published ”One year into VC Platform” roughly one year ago. A post to reflect on our progress on the “platform initiative” and what that meant for both us as a team at Inventure and for our portfolio. It is time for a “Two years into VC Platform” post to check our progress and our plans forward.

For the purpose of clarity, I would define platform/value creation work as those activities a fund does to help the portfolio companies’ growth path and ultimately increase their value.During this path, there are two types of “hard” checkpoints. The first ones being add-on funding rounds, a market signal of a value increase on paper. The second, an actual exit, the moment of truth of VCs when actual money flows back to LPs. It takes time to reach these hard checkpoints, and a lot of the activities done in the meantime are difficult to correlate to success. What we want to focus on is what companies will prioritize to reach those validation moments and what we should help them with on the way.
