The people behind Keadyn are driven by entrepreneurship, tech, and innovation. All partners in Keadyn have a background as entrepreneurs and we are thrilled to be helping tech founders to succeed. That’s where we get our energy and inspiration from. That’s why we do, what we do!
Do you want to be part of a new investing movement in tech start-ups?
We believe that the current VC model is outdated and are up for a reboot. Why?
We believe that the lead investor (e.g fund manager) should be highly committed and rewarded mainly for success of its investors. Investors should have the ability to invest on a deal by deal basis, and the duration of an investment should be aligned with the interest of the startup instead of the duration of the fund. With these elements in mind, we have set up the Keadyn co-investing model. We don’t want to work for the money. We want to work with the money.
Our model breaks with conventional rules. In fact, our investment and commitment for the full amount of the investment upfront is the best ‘stamp of approval’ an investor can possibly get.
We don’t charge annual management fees, because we strongly believe we should mainly be rewarded if the investments turn out to be successful. We ask for a one-time 6% deal fee per investment to cover the costs we've made and we charge a carry of 25% over the upside of an investor in the particular deal. So first the co-investor gets paid back his investment, and only once there is a profit for the co-investor we get our benefit.
Let’s assume this is a successful investment and this investment triples to an exit value of €
900.000 in 5 years. In this case, your investment increases up to € 300,000.
First, you get paid back your investment of € 100,000.
We are highly involved in the startup scene and networks in the Netherlands. We join initiatives like Startup Fest, Amsterdam Capital Week, Startup Amsterdam and we are connected with hubs like YES!Delft, Eindhoven Startups Foundation, UtrechtInc, Erasmus Centre for Entrepreneurship, Ace Venture Lab, Rockstart, and Startupbootcamp.
As a result of our entrepreneurial background and the fact that teams are convinced we truly add value, we resonate very well with founders. Combined with our emphasis on good relationships we are able to get access to the best
