Speed and scale
  • 8x larger deal funnel than traditional VCs

Our Approach
We leverage a universe of 60 million+ data points from private and public sources to methodically distill 120k companies into a dynamic list of 30 top targets.

Our proprietary, systematic process minimizes human bias and allows unrivaled coverage of the private universe. Our model is known internally as GENIUS which is an acronym for Gather Explore Nominate Interrogate Understand Systemize.

Disclaimer: These positions are fairly valued by the Investment Manager and have the discretion to determine the values. EQUIAM uses timely market data to value its portfolio. When valuing a particular portfolio position, we use the most recent: (1) closed secondary transaction, (2) preferred share price of a verified venture financing round, or (3) a recent publicly available mutual fund mark. If excessive time has passed (i.e., >12 months) since a market event has occurred, we will turn to traditional valuation techniques such as Discounted Cash Flow (DCF) analysis or public company valuation.
Leadership Spotlight
EQUIAM was founded on the belief that a broader group of investors should be able to access the growth super-cycle brought about by converging and mutually amplifying technologies. Humans are re-engineering the world with disruptive innovation, yet traditional venture capital investing methodology hasn’t evolved in 70 years.

This makes no sense to us. It’s time for data-powered, systematic VC investing. It's time to reach a broader investor audience. Welcome to EQUIAM.
