Venture Capital Firms


Research Strategy

Very little information could be found on the Germany-based company ACapital. Their official website contains only the full legal name of the company and its location and is from 2011. We attempted to utilize the full name of the company in our research as well, which yielded an article in German and a LinkedIn account of a former partner in the company. Research at Crunchbase and other investment websites yielded no additional information.

The Investors Funds and Regions were included in the spreadsheet. A summary of our findings and research below:

Research Strategy

Investment Geography

We were unable to locate the funding territory of Electric Capital and FBG Capital. To do so, we worked with the following strategy, we began searching beneath all possible company databases like (Crunchbase and Pitchbook) and each company website, to find readily available data about the territory Electric Capital and FBG Capital, invest in. However, we noticed that they had not provided any investment geography.

Then, the second strategy was to search Electric Capital's official Medium profile and local and international news about both companies to see if their executives have mentioned the territories they work with as part of their interview or a service promotion. Once again, investment geography information was not addressed.

Finally, as our third step. We reviewed all the investment companies they have published within their 'Portfolio' and confirmed there are several regions and global enterprises. So since they have invested in companies from different continents, like 'Coinlist', 'Dfinity' and 'Coda' among others, we made the same assumption that they are Global.

FFA - Assurance

We were unable to locate information about the investors type of fund, investment stage, and investment focus of FFA Assurance. We began by searching the company's website and annual report for direct responses to these requests. However, no information was provided by the company.

The Second strategy was researching through Europe and France's local news and financial articles from the industry, to see if there had been any information confirmed about these topics through interviews with the company's executives, or enough data points were we could deduct the information, once again, there was no information available.

Lastly, we tried looking through industry reports about assurance companies in Europe and France to see if an external organization had made an analysis of FFA Assurance and the way they work. However, after searching through IBSS, Reuters, and similar companies, we were unable to find any details about FFA Assurance. We believe either the company has decided to remain private as a strategic advantage or the information is limited due to a language barrier.

Research Strategy

We were unable to find any information on Hawcap. We searched through company database sites such as LinkedIn, Crunchbase, Zoominfo, and others. This search did not generate any information on Hawcap. We then searched through media publications and articles. This strategy too was fruitless as there was no mention of any company / VC named Hawcap. We also did a direct search in government company databases such as SEC.gov but there was no match with any existing company. As a last resort, we did an en extensive search on social media sites such as Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook. We found no VC named Hawcap but a profile of a Norway music producer.

Your Research Team Applied The Following Strategy

Though all information has been cited directly from pre-compiled sources, there were few companies for which no information existed. The possible reasons for the unavailability of data may be the following:

QCP Capital is primarily a Crypto Trading Firm and hence does not have investment fund type or investment stage information, unlike other investment or fund allocation companies.

Radian Partners is a members-only progressive investment community serving professional investors and corporates in accessing the private capital markets. Being a community, it does not have any investment fund type and stage information.

The website for Renza Capital does not exist. Extensive research revealed that the company is owned by Leonard Meloff who is the Chairman. His LinkedIn profile does have a link to the site, which however is invalid or broken.

Rockefeller Capital Management is an independent financial services firm offering global family office, wealth management, asset management, and strategic advisory services. Since it is not a designated investment firm it thus does not provide information related to investment type and stage.

Approach and Methodology

For each of the companies, information has been primarily sourced from the company website, news or press release, company presentations or other company produced documents. Crunchbase has been referred to in cases where the website has either provided less information or has altogether been inaccessible. In a few cases, we have referred to the company site as well as Crunchbase to build a robust set of information.

Information on investment stage and investment focuses have been built from company site, Crunchbase and the case studies section for each company. Data related to the country has been fetched from the company locations or "contact us" page that provided the HQ locations. For the investment geography, we have referred to the "how we work" section from respective websites or information from Crunchbase has been included.

All the requested information about the VC/investment funds listed in rows 391-421 is included in the attached spreadsheet.

VC/Investment Funds

  • The research findings below summarize a few categories of the information that we found about these VC/investment funds.
  • Fourteen of the VC/investment funds are headquartered in the U.S.
  • Four of the VC/investment funds are headquartered in Canada.
  • Six of the VC/investment funds are headquartered in Europe.
  • Fifteen of the VC/investment funds are exclusively venture investors.

Research Strategy

The first step in our research involved visiting each VC/investment fund's website. On those sites, we looked for the requested information. Most of the sites didn't provide all the information we sought about the specified funds, which is why we had to expand the sources we utilized beyond those direct websites. Examples of other sources we needed to use included Crunchbase and articles published by sources such as TechCrunch. SignalFire was double listed in rows 401 and 402, so we provided the information in row 401 and entered N/A in row 402. This research process provided us with all the information we sought about these VC/investment funds.
