Disclaimer: This data speaks only as of the date hereof, and TycoonVP disclaims any obligation or undertaking to provide updates or revisions to reflect any change in its expectations or returns.
The stated IRR and multiples are unrealized and based solely on our own estimate of the current value of our fund investments; was not provided or verified by the companies or third-party valuation, and does not represent the actual return of capital or gain to TycoonVP members. Our methodology for determining unrealized returns is described in our support section.
The actual return outcomes for investments are highly uncertain and may, in the end, be significantly lower than the stated unrealized IRR. Additionally, our past performance is not indicative of future returns, so we can’t provide assurances that comparable returns individually or in the aggregate will be achieved by any current or future TycoonVP fund.
Disclosure: Investing in startups carries a high degree of risk. In general, financial and operating risks confronting both early and developmental-stage companies, as well as more mature expansion-stage companies are significant. Many emerging growth companies go out of business every year. It is difficult to know how companies will grow, if at all, or what changes may occur in the market. A loss of an investor’s entire investment is possible and no profit may be realized. Investors are responsible for conducting their own due diligence.
Investment Considerations and Risks
Prior to registering on TycoonVP and before making an investment commitment, you must consider the risks of investing in private securities offerings and determine whether such an investment is appropriate for you. TycoonVP and its employees are prohibited from offering investment advice.
Any offerings are for accredited investors only. This means the decision to invest must be based solely on your own individualized consideration and analysis of the risks involved in a particular investment opportunity posted on TycoonVP.
Potential investors acknowledge and agree that they are solely responsible for determining their own suitability for an investment or strategy on TycoonVP and must accept the risks associated with such decisions, which include the risk of losing the entire amount of their principal. Investors must be able to afford to lose their entire investment.
Potential investors agree and acknowledge that they are responsible for conducting their own legal, accounting, and other due diligence reviews of the investment opportunities posted on TycoonVP.
EACH INVESTOR IS STRONGLY ADVISED TO CONSULT LEGAL, TAX, INVESTMENT, ACCOUNTING AND/OR OTHER PROFESSIONALS BEFORE INVESTING, AND TO CAREFULLY REVIEW ALL THE SPECIFIC RISK DISCLOSURES PROVIDED AS PART OF ANY OFFERING MATERIALS.
- Investment in small, especially start-up and early-stage companies, is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. While targeted returns on the amount invested should reflect the perceived level of risk in the investment, such returns may never be realized and/or may not be adequate to compensate an Investor for risks taken. Loss of an Investor’s entire investment is very possible and can easily occur. Even the timing of any payment of a return on an investment is highly speculative.
- Unlike listed companies that are valued publicly through market-driven stock prices, the valuation of startups can be difficult to determine and is often subjective. You may risk overpaying for the equity stake you receive.
- There may be additional classes of equity or derivatives with rights that are superior to the class of equity being sold. Additionally, investments are subject to dilution, which is when early investors see a reduction in ownership percentage as new stock is issued.
- An investment in private securities may need to be held for an indefinite period. Unlike investing in companies listed on a stock exchange where you can quickly and easily trade securities on a market, you may have to locate an interested buyer privately when you seek to resell your private investment even after the one-year restriction expires. There is no assurance these securities will ever be publicly tradable.
- An early-stage company may be able to provide only limited information about their business plan and operations because they do not have fully developed operations or a long history to provide more disclosure.
