  • 4. How do Limited Partnership Agreements Work?

    How do Limited Partnership Agreements Work? Limited partnership agreements are agreements between a limited partner (LP) and a general partner (GP). Limited partners are the investors in a private equity firm. As discussed previously (Video #3), these are institutions (pensions, endowments, foundations) or individuals (family offices, select high net worth individuals). The general partner is the private equity firm. (Video #5 discusses the details of private equity firms.) The LP and the GP join in a limited partnership agreement to form a private equity fund, with the purpose of investing in companies. Once an investment in a company has been made, it becomes a portfolio company of the private equity fund. The LP has limited liability and does not give the private equity fund all...

Get free weekly video training here: http://www.danmartell.com/newsletter Looking to raise a round of funding? Watch my free video on Fundraising Like a Pro http://lp.danmartell.com/fundraising Hey, Fundraising is a sexy topic. And understandably so. Because when executed properly, raising capital affords you the opportunity to scale up your startup with speed. To build a global sensation, reach billions with your product, and create mass-scale impact. The very moment you accept VC funding, you’re instantly fueled by increased access to: - Top-level talent - Experienced advisors - More press than you can handle And the cash to carry out your most ambitious plans But there is a dark side. One that many entrepreneurs sadly miss when asking for capital. And unless you’re willing to take an examined look at the HIDDEN agreements you’re implicitly accepting when taking on VC or angel investments, then you’re setting yourself up for a long, frustrating journey. So let’s get into it… Now this isn’t to say that raising VC is a good thing or a bad thing. But it is totally context-dependent. And your decision to pursue venture capital MUST match up with your goals and entrepreneurial makeup. So if you’re not willing to bleed a little (agreement 1)... … and the idea of giving up control of your company (agreement 3) scares the crap out of you. Then I’d recommend you think twice before going down that path. But if you’re playing the startup game to create hyper growth (for both yourself and your company), and are willing to accept the implicit demands of VC, then it might just be the next step you need to take to start playing a much bigger game. So go ahead and watch the video now. And if you still feel like raising venture capital is right for you, then leave a comment below and let me the VERY FIRST thing you’d do with the large cash infusion. Look forward to hearing it. To scaling up (and staying sane), – Dan Don't forget to share this amazing entrepreneurial advice with your friends, so they can be inspired too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syfMR9Akxqo ===================== ABOUT DAN MARTELL ===================== “You can only keep what you give away.” That’s the mantra that’s shaped Dan Martell from a struggling 20-something business owner in the Canadian Maritimes (which is waaay out east) to a successful startup founder who’s raised more than $3 million in venture funding and exited not one... not two... but three tech businesses: Clarity.fm, Spheric and Flowtown. You can only keep what you give away. That philosophy has led Dan to invest in 33+ early stage startups such as Udemy, Intercom, Unbounce and Foodspotting. It’s also helped him shape the future of Hootsuite as an advisor to the social media tour de force. An activator, a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie and, yes, a romantic (ask his wife Renee), Dan has recently turned his attention to teaching startups a fundamental, little-discussed lesson that directly impacts their growth: how to scale. You’ll find not only incredible insights in every moment of every talk Dan gives - but also highly actionable takeaways that will propel your business forward. Because Dan gives freely of all that he knows. After all, you can only keep what you give away.

How do Limited Partnership Agreements Work? Limited partnership agreements are agreements between a limited partner (LP) and a general partner (GP). Limited partners are the investors in a private equity firm. As discussed previously (Video #3), these are institutions (pensions, endowments, foundations) or individuals (family offices, select high net worth individuals). The general partner is the private equity firm. (Video #5 discusses the details of private equity firms.) The LP and the GP join in a limited partnership agreement to form a private equity fund, with the purpose of investing in companies. Once an investment in a company has been made, it becomes a portfolio company of the private equity fund. The LP has limited liability and does not give the private equity fund all the money up front. For example; if the LP commits $50 million in capital to the private equity fund, it might, initially, only give $10 to $20 million of this capital. The fund, as the GP finds additional investments, will call for additional capital from the LP. The LP is committed to giving all the capital, as per the original limited partnership agreement, over the length of the fund. A private equity fund length is usually seven to ten years or longer if rolled over. This doesn’t mean that the LP has no exit options from the commitment since there is a secondary market for private equity investors. The LP, if it has already made investments and has future commitments, can sell the investments it has made along with the commitments, to another limited partner, in a LP secondary. The LP can also divide the sale up in a structured secondary, an example of which is when the LP holds onto the existing investments that the funds made but sells the future commitments. The ILPA (Institutional Limited Partners Association) website is an excellent resource for further information regarding LP agreements. In addition to representing 300 LPs worldwide, comprising over a trillion dollars of assets in private equity, the ILPA website shows forms for capital calls, best practices for LP agreements and much, much more.

I have a number of people who are very open to making an investment in my business but they are waiting for a proposal of what I can offer. I have a business plan prepared but I need some assistance to help me to structure to some type of offering. I guess I'm looking for some type of private placement memorandum structure, except that I don't want to issue stock. I was thinking of offering very attractive returns on a loan plus a provision for a revenue sharing note. Or possibly even revenue sharing preferred shares as mentioned in an article on this site. I'm not an attorney and I really can't afford to hire one for this purpose. So I was hoping there might be some resources available to help me to structure something which is both fair to the investor and my company and which properly documents the terms and conditions. Really enjoy reading the posts and articles here and appreciate any assistance which can be provided. Best, Jay"

As blockchain-facilitated crowdfunding is disrupting venture capital at blistering speed, we are joined by Ciaran O'Leary, Founder and General Partner at BlueYard. BlueYard stands at the intersection of this transition. Structured as a traditional VC fund, its thesis focuses fully on the decentralized economy and it invests in tokens too. Ciaran joined us to discusses what blockchain means for VCs and its implications for BlueYard. Topics discussed in this episode: - Ciaran's journey as a VC - How the VC industry has been changing - Why he founded Blue Yard and its investment thesis - Value creation in a blockchain economy - Buying equity vs buying tokens - Why tokens and ICOs are erroding the distinction between hedge funds and VC funds - Best practices for running ICOs Links mentioned in this episode: - BlueYard Capital: https://ipfs.io/ipfs/QmdvDZ4R8snjsRtEBXgURgiYoBbRYi55PqkThJqgm29BFh/ - BlueYard Investment Thesis: https://medium.com/@BlueYard/blueyard-thesis-cac357725ee6 - Filecoin Investment Article: https://medium.com/@BlueYard/filecoin-e95e5cc75122 - Protocol Labs Investment Article: https://medium.com/@BlueYard/protocol-labs-35ceff61b031 - Userfeeds & why the web needs a new information ranking system: https://medium.com/@BlueYard/userfeeds-why-the-web-needs-a-new-information-ranking-system-5bdab9f5e580 - OB1 & OpenBazaar – BlueYard Capital – Medium: https://medium.com/@BlueYard/ob1-openbazaar-2be35862e0bf Sponsors: - Shapeshift: Buy and sell alt coins instantly and securely without a centralized exchange - http://epicenter.tv/shapeshift This episode is also available on : - Epicenter.tv: https://epicenter.tv/200 - YouTube: http://youtu.be/i_yq8q3IP_c - Souncloud: http://soundcloud.com/epicenterbitcoin/eb-200 Watch or listen, Epicenter is available wherever you get your podcasts.

Having issues deciding how to split up the equity in your business between your team (co-founder), advisors and potential investors?

Due to popular demand, I’ve decided to finally tackle the billion dollar beast. And while it’s not easy to have a conversation about startup equity without putting the faint of heart to sleep, it’s territory that simply can’t be overlooked. Because for any growth-oriented entrepreneur entertaining the idea of handing out equity in their company, the math absolutely matters… And one small misstep can be the difference between accelerated growth or the speed pass to startup hell. So if you’ve ever wondered what a healthy equity breakdown looks like for all key stakeholders (founders, advisors, investors and team members)... … then give this new video a quick spin. As you can see, used appropriately, equity can be an amazing way to incentivize team members and attract key advisors and investors. Like I did with Uber’s Travis Kalanick But if you don’t enter the conversation with clear knowledge of the right benchmarks to shoot for… … then you’re setting yourself up to either give too much away or lose talent and investors to other startups playing a much sharper numbers game. So get your numbers right. Make the right offers. And then step up to the plate and use equity for the growth accelerant it is.
