TCP Venture Capital has two funds under management:
Veterans' Opportunity Fund Investment
Businesses owned and managed by veterans of the U.S. Armed Services represent an attractive opportunity for investment. Currently there are over 20 million veterans of the United States Armed Forces. It is our belief that veteran-owned business represent an attractive investment opportunity that, when proper due diligence is applied, can produce superior return on invested capital.
It is our belief that the high growth business that have been started by veterans over the last five years suffer from lack of capital and other resources to accelerate their growth. It is anticipated that the military will reduce its size over the coming years by as much as 30% of the current active duty and reserve ranks. It is the Fund’s belief that these mid-career veterans who had planned to retire from the military will now re-invent themselves and their careers in the commercial sector.
We believe this downsizing presents an opportunity to help veterans and generate attractive returns for our investors.
Propel Baltimore Fund: Investment
The severe undercapitalization of post-Series Seed companies in Baltimore City represents an attractive opportunity for investment. The Propel Baltimore Fund addresses the critical need for more early-stage capital in Baltimore City. It is our belief that Baltimore-based business represent an attractive investment opportunity that, when proper due diligence is applied, can produce superior return on invested capital.
We believe that Baltimore has a number of unique attributes that enable companies based in the city to thrive, including: A high concentration of human capital, particularly in burgeoning industries such as education technology, healthcare, and cybersecurity. A wide breadth of promising technologies emerging from research universities and federal laboratories in the region A number of unique state funding resources that mitigate risk by advancing technologies to commercially viable stages.
We believe that these unique attributes present Propel with an opportunity to help encourage more entrepreneurial activity within Baltimore City, while also generating attractive returns for our investors.
