Vintage’s broad holdings of Israeli venture capital and private equity funds as well as numerous direct secondary investments provides a significant and unique advantage when co-investing.
Through our secondary and funds of funds vehicles, Vintage holds stakes in roughly 120 U.S., European and Israeli venture capital funds and Israeli private equity funds. Our proprietary database tracks the performance of over 4000 venture and private equity-backed companies, as well as over 750 venture capital and private equity funds. We leverage these unique assets in order to proactively identify and access many of the leading private late-stage companies.
Because we have been tracking the companies for so long and have a strong partnership with the funds that are investors in the companies, our ability to quickly perform due diligence and decide on opportunities is a win for both the companies and the portfolio fund investors. In addition, Vintage does not require large stakes in companies. As such, our investment is not overly dilutive to funds or the entrepreneurs.
Leveraging our proprietary database of thousands of technology companies, investors and funds, Vintage has become an active advisor to both the Chief Information Officers of several Fortune 500 companies and the senior executives of leading public technology companies. Vintage has a team focused on actively introducing portfolio companies and portfolio funds’ portfolio companies to investors, customers and strategic partners.
