EMPOWERING SUSTAINABLE GROWTH
SHAPING THE FUTURE...
Presently, our team collaborates with audacious entrepreneurs committed to establishing enduring enterprises. While this new era offers boundless potential and extraordinary opportunities, it can also present entrepreneurs with the challenges of securing essential capital for business expansion.
In the fast-paced landscape of today, no matter how esteemed an organization may be, maintaining a static stance is not a viable option. Disruption is an inescapable reality that must be addressed, and waiting for the "perfect moment" is a futile endeavor.
At QUAM, we staunchly advocate for a contemporary mindset - one characterised by open-mindedness and a strategic embrace of calculated risks. It involves seeking inspiration and deriving insights from unconventional sources and unexpected pathways.
While the specifics of each investment opportunity vary, QUAM Venture Capital typically evaluates early-stage ventures based on the following overarching criteria:
1. EXCEPTIONAL MANAGEMENT TEAMS
We invest in ventures led by ambitious entrepreneurs and management teams. These teams exhibit unwavering passion, commitment, and a visionary outlook, capable of conceiving groundbreaking ideas and cultivating global enterprises.
2. INVESTMENT SPECTRUM
Our investment spectrum is wide-ranging, from as little as €500,000 to support innovative concepts to as much as €3 million for teams with early revenue traction in need of expansion capital, spanning Seed, Series A, and beyond.
However, our commitment doesn't end there. As our portfolio companies progress and demonstrate their potential, we stand ready to provide additional funding, scaling up our investments to around €10 million. In extraordinary cases, we may consider even larger investments when opportunities have the potential to reshape or dominate entire industries.
3. MARKET OPPORTUNITIES
We seek investment opportunities that address substantial challenges within expansive markets, spanning various sectors. Our focus areas include Artificial Intelligence, Space Ventures, Clean-tech Renewable Energy, Biotechnology, Blockchain, Cybersecurity, Digital Ledger Technologies, STEMCELL, Nano Technologies, Quantum Computing, Sophisticated SMART proprietary technologies, VR Entertainment, Transportation, and Infrastructure across Europe, North America, and Latin America.
4. GROWTH POTENTIAL
QUAM targets early-stage ventures that demonstrate the potential for rapid growth. These companies typically possess a robust, defensible position concerning their technology and intellectual property.
5. TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION
Our preference lies in pioneering ideas that have the capacity to transform the lives of tens of thousands or even millions of individuals, effecting profound societal impact while sustaining a viable business model. However, we approach highly complex, esoteric technologies cautiously, emphasising the need for proven concepts within our sectors of interest and a clear vision for delivering significant positive social change. We avoid projects that lack a discernible path to commercialisation.
6. EXIT STRATEGY
We expect our investments to deliver tangible, measurable improvements to all stakeholders. Our investors typically seek returns of at least five times their initial investment within a seven-year time frame. A well-defined exit strategy, outlining how investors will achieve these returns, is crucial due to the inherent risk associated with early-stage ventures.
