Q. Is the information of Limited Partners entered into Decilehub visible only to me, or do others have access to it as well?

As the information of Limited Partners can be sensitive, I am wondering whether only writer (and team) can check. 

Top answer:

This is a great question, and I understand your concern.  We have built Decile Hub to be entirely walled off between each of the accounts that have signed up.  What that means is the only people viewing your inserted data are the write...

How do I recap a company with a large amount of SAFE's outstanding?

We have several SAFE's as investments in a company. Virtually all of the capital has been put in by our group.  What rights do we have as SAFE holders if there are issues or concerns with management actions? If you were the investor in this entity, how would you approach this situation?   

Top answer:

A priced round will convert the SAFEs. In addition, because you're the largest investor, you do have some leverage. Usually, the best thing to do is to hash this out with the founding team 1st. For example, you can get them to agree to d...

Fee based VP structure

I am noticing there are many fees based VP structure popping up. Some start as little as $1k. This is something I found on a form in a VC firm that hasn't closed yet, but they say they have registered and currently run SPVs. "Venture Partners are required to invest a minimum of $5,000, receive incentives for raising capital, gain access and voting rights for our proprietary dealflow and benefit from a elite and diverse network." They have 70 VPs so far. It sounds more of a fee based angel syndicate but with "Venture Partner" titles, as well as a promise for a board seat. Not sure how that's possible with their check size between $100k-200K

Top answer:

Yikes! There is little need to do this. People that are trying to do stuff like this do so because they are desperate. First, "receive incentives for raising capital" is a MAJOR broker dealer violation. Second, a $5k investment is not wo...

Adding someone using the Chrome extension that is not an LP, Connector, or Recruit

When adding someone with the Chrome extension that isn't an LP, Connector, or Recruit (e.g. an Entrepreneur, PC executive, etc.), what is the easiest way to insert them directly into the general Directory so they show up in the "People" database?  When using the Chrome extension, you must choose a "Pipeline" to import the contact into. I am logging deals and want to use the extension to add the entrepreneurs from the deals I'm reviewing directly into the "People"  database since they don't fit into the other database categories.  Thanks.

How can a fund protect its ROI without follow-on capital?

A small startup studio fund can get crammed down if and when future rounds are needed.  Some innovative methods to protect the fund's interest without sabotaging future funding would be useful to have.

Top answer:

By definition, a studio will have a lot more ownership then most investors. Because of the complicated cap-tables of studio companies, many, if not most VCs avoid investing in such companies. Rather then attempting to figure out how to m...

How is ownership in a VC fund passed on to survivors of a deceased LP.

For an individual who is an LP, how does ownership in a given VC fund get passed to the individual's survivors.

Top answer:
