Pressbox (Press Release) - Qualifying Companies Must Have Minimum $10M Revenue & 25% Year on Year Growth

Silicon Valley, September 5, 2012 - The Founders Club, (www.founders-club.com), a unique equity exchange fund, announces the addition of its latest fund. The new fund is open to CEOs, founders and early investors in technology companies with a minimum of $10 million in revenue for the last twelve months and minimum year on year revenue growth of 25%. Shareholders in these companies will be able to invest a portion of their personal equity into the growth equity exchange fund. Key benefits to entrepreneurs and investors:

• Exclusive investment opportunity – this investment is only available to shareholders in high growth companies
• Realize full value of your stock – rather than sell stock at today’s price, invest and diversify today into a portfolio of high momentum companies where the fund sells at the optimal exit price
• Join a network of successful founders – every founder and investor is motivated to make your company more successful
• Access to investment capital – be introduced to any of the 40 VCs on the advisory board of The Founders Club and the VCs backing other members of the club
• Total transparency - new members may review the portfolio before they join
• Rigorous admissions - benefit from professional VC screening and selection from general partners, advisors and vote of approval from existing members
• Meet and collaborate with other members of The Founders Club
• Accelerate the funding process for your next company – our development stage equity exchange funds help angel backed and VC backed companies access our unique global network of active angel and series A and B stage investors
• Healthcare & Life Science funds – healthcare and biotech entrepreneurs benefit from added networking relevancy by joining industry focused exchange funds

Andrι Jaeggi, chairman of The Founders Club and former managing director of multi-billion dollar VC fund of funds Adveq said, “The Founders Club is essentially creating a mutual fund comprised of privately held growth companies. These companies are well beyond technology and market risk. All these companies have good visibility to attractive exits. Bringing 15 such companies into the same equity exchange fund provides a rare and attractive investment available exclusively to shareholders of high growth companies. In the world of finance this is an industry first. Any investor would be hard pressed to find a matching high growth investment portfolio or fund manager.”

The Founders Club is an established family of funds where entrepreneurs agree to invest a percentage of their equity into one or more of The Founders Club funds in return for fund ownership and membership in the club. There is no cash cost to join. Members only contribute equity. The Founders Club provides any single entrepreneur a strategy to create wealth while accomplishing personal financial diversification and reaping the rewards of a strong and relevant network. Entrepreneurs accepted into the club have access to other members as well as the forty venture capitalists, super angels and successful entrepreneurs serving on our advisory committees.
