$50,000,000 Sapling Fund LP is Warmly Welcomed in Columbus, Ohio

The Sapling Fund LP launches in Columbus, Ohio, with expertise in early stage venture capital and leveraging relationships from Silicon Valley, to Harvard Business School, to Wall Street.

COLUMBUS, Ohio, May 22, 2014-- The Sapling Fund LP is an early stage venture capital fund focused primarily on companies that leverage technology to create major disruptive improvements in multi-billion dollar verticals. The leadership team leverages a powerful network of relationships across the US, and the efficiency of the internet to collaborate with legendary Angels, VC’s, PE’s, and industry leading organizations.

The passage of the Jobs Act of 2012, and implementation of General Solicitation in September of 2013, now allows for access to Best of Class, early/growth stage private companies all across the USA. The firm utilizes proprietary platforms to screen target companies, and also proudly works alongside other platforms/groups including: Angel List, 500 Startups, Angel Investors/Groups, Microsoft Ventures, Fundable, TechStars, Miami University Alumni, Harvard Business School Alumni, Ohio State University Alumni, Ace Portal (in association with NYSE), Y Combinator, and more.

“Forward thinking business leaders and legislators thought they were only helping entrepreneurs as they crafted the Jobs Act, and repealed an 80+ year old ban on General Solicitation of Private Equity Offerings. It turns out, the opportunity is a huge win-win. Accredited investors now have incredible access to what is the most productive asset class that has ever existed….best of class, early stage, private companies.”-Abe Nixon, Sapling Fund LP, General Partner

The firm utilizes models based upon the successful practices of other leading early stage investors such as SV Angel, Y Combinator, 500 Startups, Khosla Ventures, Right Side Capital Management, etc. Since 2005, Y Combinator has funded over 630 startups, and their current portfolio valuation was last reported at over $14 Billion.

“The power of the internet, the Jobs Act, and the growth of best of class entrepreneurial ecosystems all across the US, have created the opportunity to systematically identify, invest in, mentor, and scale companies-faster and cheaper than ever before in history. Big name corporations (Microsoft, Novartis, Walmart) and financial companies (Barclays, Fidelity, Blackrock) are now operating business accelerators and earlier stage venture arms, so that is great to see and further validates what we are doing. ”-Abe Nixon
