Verte Opportunity Fund

Venture Capital Mixed with Impact Investing

The Opportunity Zone program is a federal tax incentive established to bring billions of dollars to “under-developed” and “distressed” areas, creating economic opportunity where otherwise, it’s lacking. By offering attractive tax benefits to investors, this program is considered a win-win-win; good for the economy, good for the communities, and good for the investors.

Performing in line with the intent of the legislation, Verte Opportunity Fund is focused on both venture partnerships and local economic impact. With this two-tiered strategy at the forefront, we invest in companies that not only offer promising returns, but also tangible economic influence in the communities in which they operate.

Verte Opportunity is our second venture capital fund. Follow this link for more information on our first fund, Verte Capital.

Long-term Investment

As part of the Opportunity Zone incentive, legislators intentionally built in a long-term, ten-year investment holding period.  The strategic design of our portfolio is engineered to target this ten-year investment horizon.

  • In the early years of the Fund, our focus will be on earlier-stage companies that will naturally take a relatively long time to mature and “exit” the portfolio by being acquired or becoming a portfolio company.  We target seven- to ten- year expected exits in these early days of the Fund.  Each individual company will naturally mature at its own pace, but by having a large number of such companies, we anticipate this range of maturities on average.
  • As time goes on in the Fund, some of this companies will indeed exit our portfolio.  This is often a good outcome as it means that the companies were successful in the execution on their growth strategy. At that exit time, we will either redeploy the proceeds from our exit, or make distributions to investors if we can’t find attractive new companies.  Redeployment would be into larger, more mature companies that have a shorter expected exit time, one to three years for example. Distributions to investors would be in the form of dividend income.

As a consequence of this evolution, we anticipate that the portfolio will be comprised of a smaller number of  companies at the end of that ten-year horizon which will facilitate the liquidity of the Fund.
