From Idea to IPO
Venture-Net Partners participate exclusively in start-up and other early-stage ventures.
Our mission is to facilitate the capitalization and development of viable business opportunities from start-up through a successful initial public offering or acquisition by a publicly-traded company.
From 2004 through 2014, U.S. venture capital activity ranged from approximately $23 to over $48 billion per year. In 2015, total investments surged to $78.9 billion followed by another robust year in 2016 during which approximately 550 funds invested a total of $69.1 billion. And in 2017, US-based VC investments topped $84 billion, the second highest total ever.
First quarter 2018 US venture capital investments totaled approximately $28.67 billion, an increase of 18 percent over the last quarter 2017 total of $24.2 billion — and a whopping 57 percent increase over the first quarter of 2017 total of $18.23 billion. If the remaining three quarters see VC investment activity on par with this first quarter, total VC investments for 2018 will exceed $114 billion, topping even the $105 billion invested during the Great VC Internet Bubble Year of 2000.
When all venture participants are aligned with a comprehensive strategy to achieve the economic fundamentals required to support a liquidity event, it is still possible to close an early-stage deal on terms that make sense for both money and management.

The explorers of the modern era are the entrepreneurs, men with vision, with the courage to take risks and faith enough to brave the unknown. These entrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States. They are the prime movers of the technological revolution. Ronald Reagan
