ExO Capital

Investing in Exponential Organizations

The Structure.

We are raising a $100M USD fund to invest in promising exponential organizations around the world for deployment beginning in Q2’2021.

We expect initially to invest in organizations at pre-seed and seed stage, with follow-on investment rights. Anticipated investments will range between $100,000 and $300,000, across 20-30 companies per primary focus area.

We plan to reserve follow-on capital to increase our position in the most promising companies that grow over time and with our support.”

The Strategy.

Pre-Seed

We invest up to $100,000 USD in exchange for up to 5% equity. We will often be the first and sole investor in the pre-seed stage.

Seed

We invest up to $200,000 in the seed stage. We do not endeavor to be the lead investor in these rounds but to partner with a lead.

Follow-on

We do intend to follow-on in future rounds as possible with reserved capital and/or future investment proceeds.

The Thesis.

Accelerating Technologies

Value is being created at a historically unprecedented level on a global scale.

COVID-19 has been a forcing function to the distribution of entrepreneurial capability to spread around the globe at an extreme pace. There is a diaspora from Silicon Valley and other major hubs. How do you find, measure, and invest in the organizations that are creating the most significant value the fastest?

We are uniquely capable of identifying and investing in the most promising organizations; exponential organizations
