Criteria

Life is indeed, too short. Ask Nic Fouquet. Vaux focuses on opportunities that match well with our simple realities. They usually have the following attributes:

Domain Expertise

People that know people, identify problems and believe passionately in the viability of their solutions have a leg up to get things done more effectively.

Stage-agnostic, but something new

A new product, market, or acquisition that will propel the company to the next level, and requires capital and teambuilding to do so.

Limited baggage

Basically, that means most or all of the equity held by the founding partners. This speeds decisions and minimizes headaches for us all.

Local Company, Global Vision

We like U.S. or UK headquarters and a desire to expand activities worldwide. We like doing things we understand.

Hits our sweet spot

We have invested as little as $100,000 and up to $2,000,000 in prior deals, though in new media and platforms, deal sizes are trending on the low side of that

For Angel Investors

Vaux invests with a small group of angels and SFO’s, which is great work of you can get it.
