Capria The first global accelerator for impact fund managers

Accelerator / Incubator

OVERVIEW

Description

Capria Accelerator provides startup fund managers with seed capital, warehousing of initial investments on our balance sheet, fund operating tools & processes, mentoring, fundraising support, investment evaluation support, and access to a growing global network of impact fund managers. We work with financial services entrepreneurs who are setting up investment vehicles to deploy risk capital - equity and/or debt - to support businesses that are both profitable and impactful.

You could classify us as a hands-on VC for VCs, working with you as you move from development of your PPM and fundraising to full-scale fund execution. We are focused on building a long-term relationship that provides continuous value-added benefits.

PROGRAM DETAILS AND REQUIREMENTS

Program Details

We will review applications on an ongoing basis for our inaugural cohort until October 31, 2015. An overview of the process and our selection criteria is provided below. In exchange for the initial investment capital, as well as the tools and training provided, Capria Accelerator will receive an equity stake in each GP (or equivalent) we partner with and a share of profits from the created fund(s). We look to align interests based on each fund manager’s long term success and therefore do not charge any cash fees upfront to participate.

Applicants chosen to participate in "Stage 2: In-Person Intensive" will receive an initial $5,000 investment and be qualified to receive up to an additional $45,000 in investment capital to support fund operations following completion of Stage 2. Warehouse capital will also be available following the "Intensive".

We work together throughout each part of our process in order to ensure that mutual expectations are clear. We look forward to seeing your application and feel free to contact us at info@capria.vc if you have any questions.
