AZ ELTIF - VENTURE CAPITAL - ALICROWD II (hereinafter "ALIcrowd II" or the "Sub-Fund") is the new Venture Capital product of Azimut Investments that allows retail investors to access the most interesting innovative startups and SMEs with high growth potential.
The objective of ALIcrowd II is the growth of value in the medium/long term. To do so, it will carry out investment operations (Seed Capital, Early Stage and Late Stage) acquiring stakes in the capital of startups and SMEs.
The size of the Fund will be €35 million with a duration of 8 years. The objective is to invest in high potential projects also through equity crowdfunding campaigns.
The product is an initiative of the Azimut Group, the first independent financial reality in the asset management sector, active for 30 years and listed on the Italian Stock Exchange in Milan since 2004. Since 2014, it has been offering specific financial instruments to encourage the injection of private capital into small and medium-sized enterprises and, at the same time, create return opportunities for investors.
Azimut, which has always been at the forefront of democratizing investments, has decided to also open to Mamacrowd investors the possibility of accessing, through its distributor Azimut Capital Management SGR SpA, a product that invests in an asset class that is usually exclusive and generally reserved for professional investors, and to allow the public to participate with a minimum ticket of only €10,000, compared to the hundreds of thousands that would normally be needed.
ALIcrowd II aims to invest in high potential companies using an innovative investment policy compared to more traditional venture capital funds, and combines the advantages of a managed and diversified product , typical of a fund, with those of market validation typical of an equity crowdfunding campaign.
Companies will be identified by exploiting Mamacrowd's network of partners and the Group's professional skills and will be submitted to market validation through a crowd campaign.
The first cause of failure of a startup is the lack of capital(source CBS Insight): to lower the risk of each operation ALIcrowd II combines its investment with that of professional investors and the crowd. Well capitalized portfolio companies will have a higher probability of growth in the market.
Participating in ALIcrowd II means: relying on a competent management team with a precise investment policy, access to selected deals, structured and with privileged conditions; but also having the possibility to access with a single investment to a diversified portfolio by sector, by growth stage and business model, with particular attention to the markets of the future.
Behind ALIcrowd II lies all the expertise of the Azimut Group and Azimut Libera Impresa SGR, the Fund's managing director and the Group's SGR dedicated to alternative products.
Azimut's expertise is combined with the experience of SiamoSoci, manager of the Mamacrowd platform and one of the pioneers in the world of Venture Capital in Italy, active since 2011 on its mission to bring companies and individuals closer to unlisted assets in a simple and diversified way.
SiamoSoci has created some club deals such as Club Digitale and Club Acceleratori (which within their portfolios count scale-ups such as Tannico and Velasca), and since 2016 is a leader in the equity crowdfunding sector through its portal Mamacrowd, through which it has enabled the financing of more than 150 companies for more than €110 million.
ALIcrowd II was born from the collaboration between Azimut and Mamacrowd and on the experience of AZ ELTIF - ALIcrowd, which since the beginning of its activity in 2021 has already invested €17.5 million in 26 innovative startups and SMEs in seed and pre-series A, in 14 different sectors, from proptech to insuretech, from fintech to the mobility sector. The startups were identified by leveraging Siamosoci's network of partners and co-investing with the main Italian venture capital funds, channelling the investment through equity crowdfunding campaigns. This ensured a leverage effect on the amount invested by the sector, allowing the companies to raise more funding and reach a solid capitalization.
