We will often further leverage that investment capital by utilizing seller financing, conventional bank financing, or other sources of senior/mezzanine debt to complete transactions. The financing criteria for each acquisition is different. As an Investor, you will have the chance to see the deal structure for each acquisition. Then you can determine if you want to invest, how you want to invest, and finally, how much to invest.
Are you an Accredited Investor? Do you even know what that means? Contact Us to get notified of current acquisition opportunities, upcoming Angel Forums, Pitch Days, Investor Bootcamps, Lunch and Learns, and more.
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.
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. <Impact Investing>
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 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. <Late stage investments>
