Western Colorado is a growing community of Tech Startups, Tourism, Outdoor Recreation Manufacturing, Energy, and Impact Companies. Infusion of large amounts of capital from outside will allow companies to start here, move here, and grow here.
To make a significant, sustainable impact, companies must be able to scale far beyond just the founder/operator. We are not looking for ‘buy a job’ companies. We look for opportunities that scale in a way that bring measurable, lasting change.
We prefer companies where a leveraged buyout is possible. In this case, Venture Advocates relies on a blend of VA capital, Investor debt or equity, seller financing, and/or traditional bank financing to complete transactions
Special attention is given to companies in industries that already serve a social, environmental, or economic mission. If a company's core product or service solves a problem AND maximizes sustainable impact, we get very excited.
We love meeting passionate, mission minded entrepreneurs with solid plans to change the world. Although we will invest in startups, VA prefers to acquire existing companies with Earnings/Profits of $150,000-$1,500,000.
