New York City-based Laconia Capital Group LP has launched a new B2B venture fund. According to the firm, the fund will focus on late-seed stage companies that have “reached an inflection point in their business development.” Laconia plans on making eight to 10 investments that average between $250,000 and $750,000 over the next 18 months.
NEW YORK, Jan. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Laconia Capital Group L.P. announces the launch of a new Business-to-Business Venture Capital Fund.
The newly capitalized fund utilizes an investment approach described as “Inflection Capital Investing,” through which Laconia will invest in late seed-stage companies that have reached an inflection point in their business development that strongly suggests continued growth, attractive future funding rounds, and current tangible value.
Companies reaching Laconia’s inflection point have an in-market product, existing primary revenue stream, relatively light future capital requirements, and a valuation that reflects the current asset value rather than a hockey stick projection.
These companies typically need late seed-stage financing to further build out their product features set, and refine their market value proposition and sales structure.
Inflection Capital Investing allows Laconia to target companies that have solid fundamentals, but which have not yet achieved the full demonstrated scalability needed to attract a Series-A round of financing.
Laconia has identified a large pool of pre Series-A companies that have been created over the past 24 months from a record influx of Angel and institutional seed stage capital.
“This is an excellent time to discover quality companies on the cusp of scalability, especially now that valuations are stabilizing, and may be falling,” says David Arcara, Laconia’s Co-Founder and Managing Director.
Entrepreneurs and independent investors David Arcara and Jeffrey Silverman founded Laconia. Amongst their past investments are Localytics, LeagueApps, TripleLift, LocalVox, Alice, and Wymsee.
Laconia plans to complete 8-10 investments over the next 18 months with an average investment size between $250,000-$750,000.
