Spur Capital Partners, LLC ©2016
Spur Capital focuses primarily on early-stage, technology-centric, U.S. venture capital partnerships. We have a successful history of durable relationships with top-tier venture capital firms as well as uncovering up-and-coming firms. Our limited partners are leading private foundations, endowments and institutional investors in the United States and Western Europe.
The Innovation Cycle
We commit our contractually-pooled fund-of-funds with venture partnerships over three to four year periods providing time diversification and balance for investors and stable, consistent support to venture capitalists.
Entrepreneurial companies cluster in places with highly educated and entrepreneurial workforces, world-class universities and other support services, as well as leading venture firms with prior success stories. While the venture industry and the companies it spawns are increasingly seeking global markets, we believe investors are best served by our focused investment approach.
What We Look For
In selecting venture firm relationships we evaluate investment thesis and strategy, relevant operating experience, investee companies’ track record, partner capacity, ownership and decision structures, as well as performance across prior economic cycles. Our venture capitalists pair strong operating experience with a demonstrated willingness to roll up their sleeves on behalf of entrepreneurs. The Spur Directors take a team approach, using their collective connections, experience and intelligence to evaluate opportunities and to provide support and advice going forward.
Among our individual accomplishments, we count contributions to the advancement and evolution of terms and conditions, performance measurement, and research as well as authorship of a number of leading books and articles on private equity.
