How Much Does Lateral Capital Invest?
In Lateral Capital IV, our most recent fund, we look to invest up to $300,000 in each of 24 companies. We do this in steps and we start by investing $100,000 in every company. Combined with investments from the groups where we are affiliated, we are often part of a total
investment “pool” of $500,000 to $1,000,000.
Initial Lateral Capital investments are often followed by one or two additional rounds of $100,000 each, as circumstances warrant. This incremental approach recognizes that it is impossible to tell “upfront” whether a company can deliver on its plans or which company has the greatest chance of long-term success.
