The smarter way for companies to raise growth capital
RueOne Investments is a superior alternative to banks and traditional private investment firms for companies looking to raise growth capital
We provide growth capital in the form of our own principal investment and assemble a syndicate of investors that are typically not private equity & venture capital funds, but instead the end capital source, such as family offices, strategic and institutional investors. Our goal is to provide patient capital focused on long term value creation.
Furthermore, our process adds value beyond simply a financial investment. We provide advisory and business development services and our investments benefit from our deep pool of advisors, operating partners and technical specialists.
Traditional capital raise
Companies seeking private capital would typically engage an investment bank or merchant bank, who in turn raise that capital from professionally managed funds. This is done on a “best efforts” basis, meaning the bank is not taking risk nor ensuring execution. Yet there are still large fees associated with the process.
Family offices and institutional investors are reducing allocations to venture capital and private equity funds in favor of direct and co-investments. However, these investors typically lack the ability to source, diligence and execute on private investments. RueOne provides an alternative to the traditional fund structure which allows our investors to participate in individual venture capital and private equity transactions with the benefit of our sourcing, structuring, due diligence, domain expertise, and professional management. RueOne assembles a syndicate of investors who have a longer-term time horizon and potentially can add strategic benefits. We operate as an investment advisor, not a placement agent, investment bank, or broker-dealer.
