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 everyone should be able to invest in 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. Welcome to VC 2.0!
