UNDERSTANDING VENTURE CAPITAL 3

Why do venture capital funds often choose emerging technology businesses to invest? Why don’t they invest in classic businesses, wear durable clothes and rest assured that their capital flow will not be lost? There are many questions about who the venture capital funds will be interested in. What these businesses are like and the investment logic of venture capital funds for these businesses is what we will discuss in today’s article.

Part 3: Fast-growing startups.

Classic businesses will typically decide on a market to enter, produce products and services, and then find a way to get their first customers. Gradually increase the number of customers paying for the product. After 3-4 years of steady growth, cost control and gradually increasing profit margins, these businesses continue to compete until the market pie is divided and business owners benefit from their investments. slowly, of course, after about 15-20 years. This type of business will prefer debt financing because their profits are planned to cover reinvestments and borrowed capital is a cheap flow of capital as we know it.

The picture completely changes when we talk about venture capital funds. The goal of success for funds and fund managers is to increase the share of assets they are managing. This goal can only be achieved when the valuation of the business in which they invest increases, and must increase rapidly. From there, the fund can divest by selling shares or IPO. With a life cycle of typically 10 years, funds expect to divest some or all of them in about 3-7 years. This, for the business receiving the investment, means that their growth rate must be outstanding during this time period.

The Venture Capital industry is driven by the hope of finding a handful of successful businesses and that success must be large, resonant and high value. In a portfolio of funds, 10 failed deals can be salvaged by just 1 successful one. A hugely successful megahit deal can accelerate the growth of the entire industry.

These megahits will be called by the beautiful name: “Unicorn”, which are startups with a valuation of over 1 billion USD.

Typically, businesses that are able to meet the criteria (1) high growth rate and (2) ability to expand quickly are enterprises with disruptive innovation capabilities. Like the UBER case has done for the taxi industry.

Today’s technology allows the number of users to grow almost unlimitedly. Social networks are operating with as many users as the population of the most populous countries in the world, something that before, private businesses could not dream of.

The cost to serve a new customer is now almost negligible for the technology industry thanks to the extensive network infrastructure and very high automation capabilities.

Thus, we clearly see that: VCs are unicorn hunters.

However, in reality it is not easy to distinguish a real unicorn from a colorful old horse.

A startup at the same time as the Amazon monument whose name few people remember now. It’s Webvan. Founded in 1996 with an online grocery model, Webvan is one of the pioneers with a post-IPO valuation of only 3 years after its founding of $ 4.8 billion. Webvan went bankrupt just 2 years after its IPO. Many reasons were given, and most of them became lessons for a truly unicorn of the time, Amazon.

Investors for Webvan through the stages include many famous names such as Benchmark, Goldman Sachs, Softbank, Sequoia, Yahoo, etc. Even the super and experienced eyes of the Venture Capital industry are sometimes That’s how old horse and unicorn are confused. However, always remember: failure is part of the venture capital process. Sequoia has also had many admirable tractions such as investing in Google with Kleiner Perkins so that not too many people remember their Webvan failure. To this day, Sequoia remains one of the most trusted VC fund managers.

The venture capital industry exists and develops based on the “Hits Driven” principle, which is very similar to the industries of gold mining, oil and gas exploration, space exploration, music, literature or cinema. Investors in these industries often have to foresee a prospect of success, willing to take the risk to invest money, time, and effort in pursuit of their beliefs. With a little luck, if successful, it will be a great success.

In the literary world, one can take J.K. Rowling as an example for an entrepreneur. The book “Harry Potter and the Prophet’s Stone” was submitted in manuscript to 12 publishers and was rejected. Surely there are founders or pitchers who will understand this pain. When Bloomsbury decided to publish the book, they were like venture capitalists themselves. So far, Harry Potter has remained a bright spot in the company’s portfolio with 13% contributing to 2018’s profits.

Venture capitalists are not interested in a startup with steady profits and slow growth. For us, those are the “walking dead” that, when there are too many in our portfolio, we will never be able to return the investment to our investors, not to mention the increased assets. We are looking for startups with “Hockey Stick” growth potential (as shown). To achieve this form of growth, we will commit to multiple rounds of funding, enough for the startup to hit certain milestones (milestones).

A VC when investing is like launching multiple rockets to the moon (which is when we exit). Fuel will be burned in stages to overcome the atmosphere and the resistance of gravity. Here is each round of funding that we will be participating in. Any rocket that does not reach the moon is considered abandoned. The moon is the ultimate destination with a VC and pretty milestones along the way don’t mean much.

In short, to understand these principles, startups should carefully consider their vision and model to understand what VCs want when they refer to “a startup with high growth”.

UNDERSTANDING VENTURE CAPITAL

© Tien Nguyen

Rekindled in the 1950s in the California wilderness that nurtured the daring and the American dream, the venture capital industry is a powerful driver of the rapid development of not only modern business but also of technology and innovation around the world. Today’s tech companies turn to venture capital funds to share ideas, find connections, financial backing, and strategic perspectives.

Understanding the historical origins, investment motivations, profit expectations and day-to-day operations of Venture Capital VC (Venture Capital VC) management companies is a key factor in helping (1) innovators have an appropriate fundraising strategy, (2) traditional investors have more new investment approaches and (3) policymakers have an effective way to attract investment in the context of closed technology. role in promoting the economy. The series of articles on UNDERSTANDING VC FUND aims to provide official perspectives on the venture capital industry and analyze related factors, serving the three groups mentioned above.

In each part of the world, depending on the level of economic development, the quality of enterprises and government policies, VCs will operate in a number of different ways and serve different audiences. Essentially, however, a venture fund will (1) raise capital from other institutions to (2) invest in the equity of (3) small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or Startups that have a high growth rate.

Part 1: Capital of VC

VC management companies (venture investment firms) do not use all their own money to invest, but they are professional capital managers, using the capital of many other organizations to make profitable investments.

Partners investing in VCs are usually organizations such as:

  • Pension Fund: Usually a state fund and manages employees’ pensions. These funds are familiar partners of VCs, especially in the Euro area due to their ability to unify several technology and sustainable development goals. Not many Southeast Asian VCs have access to this fund. AP4 and AP6 of the Swedish government are among the funds that coordinate the most capital into VCs today with about 11% to 15% of total assets under management (Asset Under Management AUM).

In our view, to promote innovation and effective investment, countries in the region need to expand the possibility of cooperation between pension funds and VCs. This needs thorough research, relevant human resource training and institutionalization to increase the efficiency of this capital management.

  • University Endowment: University endowments contribute to the development of fundamental scientific research. These funds, along with a wealth of knowledge from the university, are the basis for increasing the ability to connect and solve problems of the companies in the VC portfolio. In 2019, UE’s investment in VCs was rated as the most effective, bringing an average return of 13.4% per year, according to The National Association of College and University Business Officers – 2019 NACUBO-TIAA Study of Endowments.

The majority of universities in the region focus their cash flow on optimizing infrastructure and research activities, we do not have enough long-standing and sustainable capital flows like Western economies to increase the rate. contribution rate to the UE from which to navigate into the VCs. The most successful case of this type of fund is the National University of Singapore Endowment, which invests in the style of Yale University: long-term, diversified assets, diversified foreign currency sources and global investment audience. This fund also only spends 20% for equity investments, a very small part of which is VC.

  • Banks: As a risk-sensitive group, banks have maintained a very small amount of their capital invested in VC funds throughout the industry’s history. Currently, some banks like Goldman Sachs invest directly in startups such as the recent case of leading Series C $ 81 million in fintech startup Amount based in Chicago, IL. Banks are interested in FinTech startups because of the possibility of strategic cooperation rather than direct profits. The investment banking group makes a more prominent contribution to the VC industry in IPO listing activities than an investor.

Asian banks in particular have not yet applied much interaction with VCs to their operations. The main reason is that the risk tolerance of both well-trained bankers and financial policy makers is not high. This market has also witnessed many financial crises that have had a lasting effect that has caused the investment behavior of the majority to remain oriented towards traditional and low-risk options. Moreover, the number and quality of startups in the region is not as high as in the West.

  • High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI) and Family Offices: European VC funds often source funds from Middle Eastern oil billionaires due to historical ties and the lack of specialized fund managers. industry in this area. However, managing relationships with many of these investors consumes a lot of VC resources. Large VCs tend to raise capital from a small number of large investors rather than many HNWIs. Small VCs will typically raise HNWI funds until they have the reputation and experience to raise money from larger partners. Some of the celebrities such as Jared Leto, the Joker in Suicide Squad, the lead singer of the band 30 Seconds to Mars, have an impressive portfolio that includes Uber, Airbnb, Spotify, Nest, Reddit, Slack, Snapchat.

HNWIs in Asia are quite large and the amount of money they have is enough to create a very good motivation for VCs and startups. However, the majority of HNWIs have the need to invest in U.S. regions to benefit from immigration policies as well as more trust in Western fund managers. The HNWIs in the region themselves reap the same amount of capital from traditional industries, leaving a gap in trust between them and the tech VCs.

These organizations/individuals when contributing capital to VC will be called Limited Partners (LP).

Some VCs formed by founders who have successfully exited startups will tend to use their own cash flow to generate initial capital for that VC. For example, VC Andreessen Horowitz was founded in 2009 with an initial AUM of $300 million from Marc Andreessen after divesting from Netscape.

An important principle for minimizing investment risk is portfolio diversification. This principle is stated as “never put your eggs in the same basket”.

The organizations mentioned above have large resources that need to be managed. In addition to investing in the traditional bond and stock markets, they have a need to put a small portion of their funds into high-risk alternative assets with high return expectations. such as Hedge Funds or Private Equity funds, of which VC is one of them.

Typically, the portion of capital authorized or contributed to VCs will account for about 2-5% of the total AUM. However, this proportion is increasing because of the interest in the impact of technology on national development and successful divestments of VCs. Sweden’s AP6 pension fund currently maintains an 11% share of its $2 billion AUM to invest in VCs. One successful case of this fund is music and media platform Spotify through VC Northzone.

In addition, pension funds have a long life cycle, which is very suitable for the life cycle of VCs, most of which are 10 years.

WHAT DOES VC GET WHEN MANaging MONEY FROM THESE ORGANIZATIONS?

VCs usually charge fees with the “2 and 20” principle. 2% annual management fee on the total AUM and 20% performance fee (Performance Fee or Carried Interest) based on the total growth of the VC fund. Depending on the market and the strategy of the VCs, this fee may change. Compared to some other sources of capital, especially loans, VC is considered an expensive source of capital. However, LPs always know that this industry requires thoroughness, high concentration, practice with companies in the portfolio and a system of specific knowledge and skills. That’s why LPs still trust and more and more VCs are born.

In order to ensure the interests of the LPs, the VC is subject to legal constraints related to the obligations of the trustee (Fiduciary Duty). In this case, the VC is entrusted to manage the funds owned or raised by the LPs according to a number of purposes and scopes agreed between the parties. This legal constraint forces VCs to perform their professional obligations in the best possible way, serving the interests of the LPs. In the opposite case, the LPs can sue the VC in court and the individuals who commit the wrongdoing will have to pay compensation depending on the damages. However, the publicity of the lawsuits is relatively low, and the parties involved often choose to negotiate to resolve the issue. The biggest price VC has to pay is not being able to raise new capital sources if it shows poor fund management and profitability.

In part 2, we will analyze the equity-only characteristics of VCs and their expectations during the investment process.

UNDERSTANDING VENTURE CAPITAL 2

UNDERSTANDING VENTURE CAPITAL

Throughout the history of the financial industry, the currency has always been under pressure to depreciate due to inflation and must create a surplus from its own value through financial activities. In order to make a profit on the capital you manage, you have many options such as lending at interest, investing in other funds, buying stocks, buying government bonds, buying oil or rare metals, etc., if you are managing a venture fund, you will primarily invest in the equity of a startup.

Part 2: Investing in business equity

When a VC invests in a business, which is mostly high-growth startups or owns technology that promises future outperformance, the VC buys the equity in that business. That is also why startups that are oriented to raise capital from VCs should set up joint-stock enterprises to be able to transfer equity more easily.

A VC’s purchase of equity in a business is similar to the purchase of shares in a listed business, except that there are a few differences:

  • The openness of information: VCs mostly invest in private companies (Private). Therefore, share prices and investment volumes for these investments are not required to be disclosed to the public as is the case when buying shares of companies on the stock exchange. However, some VC investments are now being announced like: “Company A gets an investment of $700,000 from Fund X at a 7-figure valuation”. This activity has the purpose of communication rather than the transparency of investment information.
  • Liquidity: Unlike shares on a stock exchange, equity in a private enterprise is not highly liquid. This means that VCs cannot easily sell this capital for cash or more liquid assets. In contrast, when buying a stock on the HOSE, for example, you will be able to liquidate faster by selling that stock almost anytime right on the floor at a published price.
  • To liquidate this investment, VCs will have to take an additional period of time, usually 3 to 7 years, and the price must be negotiated. Most startups are even more liquid than real estate. VCs, based on expertise, problem-solving skills and market sensitivity as well as a little luck, will get liquidity from this investment through the sale of their shares to mutual funds. other private investors, other companies or, in rare cases, go public through an initial public offering (IPO).
  • Active role: Unlike stock investment, investors who choose startups as an investment object will have to take a more active role. Often, they will have to use their knowledge, experience, and connections to help startups succeed. A VC will typically invest a 20-40% stake in a startup to ensure they have a seat on the board and have a say in strategic decisions.
  • Creation of new preferred shares: In the case of stock trading on the exchange, no new shares are created. Conversely, when a VC invests in a startup, a new amount of preferred stock is created in exchange for the cash the VC transfers to the startup’s bank account through shareholder equity. The increase in the number of shares causes the ownership of the business of the founders and previous investors to be diluted.

In addition, these newly created shares are often preferred shares. This means that VC shares will be preferred over common shares in a number of ways, such as divestment priority, voting preference, undiluted priority in the next funding round, priority. be eligible to participate in the following round of funding or dividend incentives. These rights will be discussed by the parties and we will analyze in detail in the next series of Term Sheet articles.

In Asia and especially Southeast Asia, VCs often ask startups to set up new companies to receive investment capital. Newly established company locations will be countries with open and professional financial services systems, strict investment legislation or easy cash flow. The locations that are usually chosen are the area where the fund is located, Singapore, Hong Kong or the tax havens of Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, etc. This sometimes leads to some legal risks when raising money to come. The real market of startups. Therefore, startups and VCs need to discuss carefully, as well as balance the benefits when choosing the option of establishing a new company in another country to receive investment capital.

Equity and Debt: As discussed in the previous post, venture capital is a process that requires more than money with high risk, so the cost of equity investments is very high. expensive. When faced with the choice of borrowing or raising VND 2 billion for a startup, you will have to consider a few things:

  • If you borrow, you will have a personal debt (because a startup has no assets to mortgage). And if that startup fails, you’re sad twice, once for your startup and again for the upcoming time you have to plow to pay off debt.
  • If you raise capital, you will (1) not have to pay debt to VC because this is an investment, jointly owning the business, and the same board. It’s not easy for you (2) to get out of a VC just by paying off their debt. If the startup thrives, the VC will benefit more than the bank gets from you. This is obvious because the risk of VC is much higher. VC will create (3) pressure to divest because they will only be able to get the most profit from divestment. VCs won’t stay in startups to enjoy annual dividends because that amount is too small compared to the risk they are taking and the return investors give them hope for.

Building rapport and understanding the VC is extremely important because it is clear that when a dispute arises, you cannot get out of the VC easily. A popular example is Benchmark Capital’s 2017 lawsuit in Delaware court accusing UBER CEO Travis Kalanick of fraud for personal gain, breach of contract, and breach of fiduciary duty. The case was dropped a year later under an internal agreement involving a deal to buy back a large portion of capital at a valuation of $48 billion (30% lower than the most recent valuation) by UBER and a group of investors. another investment, led by SoftBank.

However, with that said, VCs don’t just invest money. They are the launching pad for many successful startups thanks to their experience, knowledge, relationships and strategic vision.

A Startup needs to understand and analyze carefully before making a decision to borrow or call for VC capital. There is never the best source of capital, only which capital is suitable for which business at a particular stage.

In part 3, we will focus our discussion on the audience most interested in investment funds: Fast-growing startups.
