DAN Fund
Launched on December 10, 2013, the DAN Fund's mandate is to invest in 3 opportunities within 1 year. The DAN Fund invests its capital evenly, committing $339,625 per opportunity.

Because our capital is fully committed and funded, we can close and fund a deal in as little as 4 weeks. Once we have received investment materials from a company including answers to our preliminary questions, we call our first board meeting within 2 weeks to discuss the company in detail. At that meeting we decide whether to continue diligencing the company and what questions remain to be answered. We then work to complete diligence which includes an on-site visit with the company, and then have our final board meeting 2 weeks after the first one. At that final board meeting, we make the decision as to whether or not we want to invest. We can then wire funds or cut a check the same day.

We are industry agnostic and although we’re proud to call Dallas home, we will invest anywhere in the US. We're best suited for Series A rounds, later rounds, or bridges between rounds.
