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.
