Portfolio Company Investments Increased 117% in Fiscal 2020
Investment values increased by more than 117% and our portfolio companies have also made significant progress.
Deuce Drone: The company initiated a follow-on funding round after its initial capital raise filled up well-before the closing of the offering period. Deuce Drone also announced a partnership with Rouses Markets and a demonstration agreement with a Buffalo Wild Wings Franchisee. We’re proud of the company’s accomplishments and the enthusiasm Deuce Drone has been generating.
Zelgor Games: As Zelgor prepares for the launch of its inaugural game later this year, it has added several new, impressive team members. The company has been able to attract top talent including AAA and indie gaming industry veterans bringing experience from: Turbine Games by Warner Bros., Dungeons and Dragons and Ghost Story Games’s BioShock Infinite DLC Burial at Sea.
Zelgor also won best pitch at a recent Founders Live Prime Time competition.
Watch Party: Watch Party’s developers have made considerable progress towards completing the company’s app, which provides a fun and easy way for friends to connect and share their passion for TV . The company is currently engaged in a round of fundraising via Netcapital.
Netcapital, KingsCrowd: In March 2020, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed meaningful changes to multiple securities exemptions. The revised regulations -which we anticipate will be implemented before the end of 2020- increase the offering limits for Regulation A, Regulation Crowdfunding and Rule 504 offerings. They also remove investment limits for accredited investors. The SEC’s actions increase the attractiveness of these options for entrepreneurs and investors. We believe this will enhance the value of funding portals and strengthen the online capital raising process in private equity. We expect these changes to benefit Netcapital, KingsCrowd and ValueSetters’ own business.
