Investment Strategy

The FOF seeks to develop a high quality venture capital fund portfolio that is well diversified across various parameters such as fund manager, investment type, and, sector / industry. Specifically, the Fund will pursue investments in:

  • Local, regional as well as national managers that have a successful history of investing in Florida, are based in Florida, or have a strong presence in the State;
  • Funds that intend to invest primarily in seed and early stage companies;
  • Funds that focus investments into industries/sectors that are of strategic importance to Florida including, but not limited to, life sciences, information technology, advanced manufacturing processes, aviation and aerospace, and homeland security and defense;
  • Funds that intend to make investments that could potentially result in start-up companies derived from technologies developed within Florida’s many colleges, universities, and research institutions.
