Note from Morgan

Introduction
Hi, I’m Morgan! I’m a previous founder and current investor in 120+ venture backed companies. I started Mana Ventures to invest in the smartest founders building the most ambitious companies. After delivering 10.5x returns on Mana Ventures Fund I and investing over $50M in 100+ companies over the last 2.5 years through the Mana Ventures AL syndicate w/ an IRR of 40.7%, I am excited to officially launch the Mana Ventures Rolling Fund, which is now my primary investment vehicle.

Mana Ventures Fund I.
This is my second fund. In 2016, I launched Mana Ventures Fund I. Over the span of 2 years, I deployed $885k of capital in 9 companies which included two breakout investments in recently public Unity Technologies (IPO - $43B+ as of 12/7/21) and quickly growing Restream ($50M Series A raised). Today, Mana Ventures Fund I is valued at $9.3M and has already realized 10.5x returns and an IRR of 210.9%.

Mana Ventures Syndicate.
In 2019, I launched the Mana Ventures AngelList Syndicate. Over the last 2.5 years, we have grown the syndicate to 3,500+ LP’s and invested over $35M in 100+ companies that have gone on to raise $250M+ in VC from top tier funds / angels including Peter Thiel, Reid Hoffman, Sequoia, Founders Fund, Google Ventures, Greycroft Partners, General Catalyst, 8VC, Floodgate, Kleiner Perkins, Index Ventures, General Catalyst, Insight Partners, among others. While very young in its lifecycle, the syndicate portfolio has already realized 2.1x returns and an IRR of 40.7% (as of 12/7/21). For a full breakdown of portfolio data please click here.

Why I’ve Launched Mana Ventures (Rolling) Fund II.
The best deals are often oversubscribed and move very quickly. Over the last few years, there have been several incredible deals I was unable to invest in purely because of the nature of syndicates (details in public / 2+ week fundraise cycle). These companies have gone on to grow revenues significantly and raise over $50M+ in follow on capital.  

I am now investing through the MV Rolling Fund and the MV Syndicate. The MV Rolling Fund allows us to invest in quickly moving and often oversubscribed deals, where syndicates may not be an option. We are tracking towards a $10M fund, deployed over 2-3 years, from which I write $10k - $100k size checks with a continued focus on emerging tech & consumer brands with product market fit & scaling revenue. I will continue to run syndicates for deals I am able to secure additional allocation.

Year 1 Fund II Performance.
It has been an exciting 1st year for our Rolling Fund! While still very early on, we’ve already had 18 mark-ups in our Rolling Fund portfolio. On a quarterly basis, gross TVPI’s are as follows:

Exclusive Benefits for Rolling Fund LP’s.
Active Rolling Fund LP’s receive several strong benefits with regards to the rolling fund and syndicates depending on commitment size. Fund benefits include reduced carry and reduced mgmt fee. Syndicate benefits include priority access to syndicates before I invite all 3.5k+ LP’s, reduced carry on syndicates, and no cut-backs on oversubscribed syndicates.

How I invest and win deals.
The Mana Ventures Rolling Fund invests early and alongside top tier VC funds and angels. I win allocations in these competitive deals through my strong network in venture and the incredible founders, operators, & VC’s in the MV syndicate. I grew up in Silicon Valley and started growing my network in venture early. I raised $6.5M in seed & Series A capital for my first startup OnMyBlock. I’ve helped raise $55M in seed & Series A capital for Restream as Head of Business Development. And I’ve helped our portfolio founders now raise $150M+ in venture dollars through introductions to VC’s / Angels. Here is a list of 100+ VC’s / Angels in my network I connect with regularly on deal flow, and below is a quote on my value-add from the CEO of JuneShine.

The performance of past deals or a lead investors' track record is not a guarantee of future returns. Venture capital fund investments are inherently risky and illiquid. Such investments involve a high degree of risk and are suitable only for sophisticated and accredited investors.
We anticipate that Rolling Funds will transition onto updated pricing terms in future quarters. Accordingly, funds launched in future quarters may begin bearing a placement fee during your subscription period. That will make the placement fee a fund expense shared by you and other limited partners in such funds. Such expenses, if implemented, will reduce your returns.
AngelList and its affiliates do not provide investment advice to investors. The information on this page should not be relied upon as research, investment advice or a recommendation of any kind. Information on this page is qualified in its entirety by the fund's Limited Partnership Agreement, Private Placement Memorandum and Subscription Agreement, which should be reviewed carefully prior to making an investment decision. Please see these documents for full details regarding risks, minimum investment, fees and expenses. The fund lead and the fund's investment advisor have the right to waive or charge additional carry to certain investors. The fund's legal name may be different from the name used above.
This fund may accept new investors after the fund undergoes a valuation update. Certain potential investors in the fund may then have access to materially different information concerning fund value at the time of their investment.
Current or future portfolio companies in this fund may use AngelList's recruiting platform and may pay an affiliate of the fund's investment adviser for premium recruiting tools and services. This may create a potential conflict of interest for the investment adviser, which you will consent to by subscribing to the fund.
