The fund is a co-investment fund, so the investment committee of the fund engages once RVC investors have put together a syndicate. Just going through the normal RVC angel syndicate process gets you into the queue for the Rockies Venture Fund. The RVF only invests in deals already led by angels, but invests at its discretion.
RVC is one of the largest and most active angel groups in the country. In 2016 RVC investors funded 17 companies by syndicating with a nation-wide network of angel groups that are a part of the Angel Capital Association, and local VCs. Every company that pitches with RVC is provided a complimentary pass Pitch Academy. This workshop is used by local SBDC’s and Colorado’s OEDIT Advanced Industries Grant Program. By working with a group of angels, your company only has to go through a due diligence process. The club’s professional due diligence team produces best-of-breed reports that are invaluable in syndicating with other individual angels and groups.
