IA Global Fund is a venture capital fund that invests in foreign born entrepreneurs. IAGF supports the top IA portfolio companies as they transition from acceleration to a venture-backed Series A round.
Sector agnostic; maturity and opportunity driven.
Most venture funds struggle with two key issues:
- Sufficient high quality deal flow; and
- Time needed to fully evaluate candidates before investing
The International Accelerator attracts the best-of-the-best startups from around the world, over 1,000 applicants in the last 3 years.
The IAGF GP will have 6-12 months of evaluation time, co-located with the candidate company’s executives, usually the CEO.
Mr. Walker has more than thirty years of executive leadership experience across technology industries, including experience in developing and bringing to market hardware, software, integrated solutions and services.
