104th Co-Investing Atrium – Icon Ventures

Co-Investing Atrium

The Co-Investing Atrium is a Club Gathering that focuses on introducing/presenting co-investment opportunities to the Club’s community of active investors. During this gathering, a fund or a project is pitched to the investors and after that, the investment community will work together to provide this fund with strategic support and resources to ensure the proper development of the company. On the 23rd of November, 2022, the 104th Co-Investing Atrium successfully took place and dozens of active and highly-esteemed investors of the Global Investment Leaders Club gathered to take a closer look at a fascinating co-investment opportunity. The fund that was presented at the 104th Co-Investing Atrium was the 7th fund of a leading VC from Silicon Valley, Icon Ventures, a company with operations across North America, Ireland and Japan.

Icon Ventures is a specialty venture capital Silicon Valley-based firm with nearly 20 years of experience and success in venture capital with a primary focus mainly on leading series B or C financings. With over $780 million under management, Icon Ventures invests with the world’s leading firms in companies that are category winners in security, cloud and data, consumer/SaaS and digital health at their earliest stages of momentum. Icon Ventures investments include iconic market-leading companies such as 41st Parameter, Aster Data, FireEye, Infera, MoPub, Palo Alto Networks, Proofpoint and Teladoc. The fund size is $400M, with only $25M available investments left to close the round.

Jon Bennion-Pedley, COO at Investment Owl, Uganda, stated that he really enjoyed the fund presentation and found it very interesting. He found it to be a very good and low-risk opportunity.

Almas Mohammed, Founding Director at Great Ethos, UK, mentioned that he has connections with a few investment banks in the US that might be very interested in the low-risk, high-return approach of this fund. Almas noted that he would be more than happy to help make these connections possible and hopefully get a sizable check from them.

Anthony Jarrin, President & CEO at The Cannaregio Group, US, said he is familiar with and likes the fund model. He also stated that although he is not too involved in this particular sector since most of his funds are on the real estate side, he would help the fund by introducing it to some of his investment colleagues in Latin America who would be very interested in a fund with such a well-thought-out structure and low-risk profile.

Even though we can’t highlight all of the valuable and wise suggestions and advice that were exchanged during the Atrium, we would like to show our gratitude to all the investors who participated in the Atrium and lent their support to this amazing fund.
