Rockies Venture Fund believes that planning for Exits leads to greater opportunities for founders and investors. The Fund prefers early exits in which deals can exit within a 2-3 year time frame, but will look at deals planning to exit in up to five years.
Rockies Venture Fund will syndicate all deals with the following characteristics:
1) There is sufficient time available to open and manage a syndicate by the close date.
2) The founders of the company we are investing in consent to syndicating their deal.
