Our Focus: Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs)

  • In lieu of establishing traditional private equity and venture capital funds that require a minimum of 7-10 year commitments, Laidlaw Private Equity, LLC has developed a growing family of independent alternative investment vehicles, having sponsored 17 pooled funds to date.
  • These special purpose vehicles or “SPVs” are available to qualified individual investors and provide access to stakes in the same private venture-backed companies traditionally only available to institutions.
  • Qualified investors must have the ability to sustain the risks associated with venture capital investments – including a lack of liquidity for sustained periods of time and almost no issuer transparency or customary due diligence – in order to be eligible to participate in these pooled funds designed to give them economic interests in the securities of targeted private issuers.
