Note from Angel Collective

We’re Sunil Pai and Nick Candito, Co-Founders of ACOF 👋

As the technology landscape has shifted away from large-scale franchise firms, some emerging managers have excelled due to their individual impact and direct company relationships. For a solo capitalist with a proven track record, there are only two constraints: time and capital.

The tradeoffs with raising larger and larger funds is twofold – size will impact your return profile and the more time spent fundraising, the less time spent helping founders win.

Taking that specific insight to “a circle of friends” (the initial meaning behind ACOF), we’ve assembled the first collaborative opportunity fund. Each year, we review hundreds of managers, funds, and portfolios and select what we consider the top ~2% to join this unique and proven platform.

In summary, we allow solo capitalists to play to their strengths, while capturing ownership upside in the top-performing investments across their respective portfolios. It's a true win/win/win for each manager, our team, and current/prospective Limited Partners like you.

Managers for 2024:
  • Mark Scianna, Forward Deployed VC | Defense
  • Shaan Puri, MFM Podcast | Generalist
  • Tim Chen, Essence VC | Developer & AI
  • Tommy Leep, Jetstream | Climate
Managers from prior vintages:
  • Sriram Krishnan, Kearny Jackson
  • Cindy Bi, CapitalX
  • Anthony Pompliano, Pomp Investments
  • Julia Lipton, Awesome People Ventures
  • Jens Lapinksi, Angel Invest
  • Kat Cole, Athletic Greens
Together, we’ve built inside of companies like Spotify, Tinder, OneMedical, Salesforce, Box and backed household names like Figma, Notion, Mercury, AtoB, Flocksafety, Deel, and Levels before teaming up to launch ACOF.

We feel very grateful and fortunate to be anchored by family offices, and entrepreneurs & investors we consider some of the best of our generation.

Full portfolio details found here: www.angelcollective.com 

Mechanics:
Deployment Period: 4 Quarters
Capital Distribution: 25% per manager (target)
Investments: ~25 in total

The focus:
Managers make investments with a post-money valuation of greater than $50M+ still with 10x upside, primarily pre-emptive, follow-on, and pro rata opportunities. 
While we assemble a generalist portfolio each year, the target is capital-light software businesses particularly within the geographic location and thematic areas where each manager specializes. 

The market opportunity:
It’s our core belief that fund size is the enemy of performance. Capital eventually finds the best companies and top emerging managers have the option to raise follow-on funds and selectively grow size, footprint, and focus over time.
ACOF is a premier platform to (a) drive ecosystem collaboration and (b) support fund progression.
Our fund fills a clear gap for inflection-point portfolio companies while our managers are deploying initial funds without a dedicated reserve strategy or the time/energy to chase down SPVs.

Portfolio potential:
We invest widely across themes like B2B SaaS, FinTech, AI, developer tools/data, consumer, web3, and marketplaces. With a deliberately diverse team there is also coverage across different geographies, networks, and emerging categories each year.

We frequently invest with top venture firms in the Series A or Series B rounds including Sequoia, Benchmark, a16z, Index, CRV, Founders Fund, NEA, Bessemer, Lightspeed, Accel, Craft Ventures, Greylock, and Insight.

The Fund is structured in annual vintages, with various solo capitalists serving in a Fund Lead capacity for the Fund for four quarterly funds at a time (the "Annual Vintages"). At the expiry of an Annual Vintage, the solo capitalists serving the Fund are subject to change. As a result, Limited Partners with subscription periods that span more than one Annual Vintage may see multiple groups of solo capitalist serving in a Fund Lead capacity, without further action required from the Limited Partners. By subscribing to the Fund, Limited Partners specifically approve of and agree with this treatment.
