Introducing Draper Global…  

investing in technology growth companies

Draper Global is a technology growth fund focused on privately-held companies. Based in Silicon Valley, the Fund seeks to provide priority access to leading technology investments, and a team of proven investors that help drive global expansion for entrepreneurs. Our objective is to provide investors with significant capital appreciation over a shorter period of time than commonly found with traditional venture capital funds.

A Smart Investment

Our early access and proprietary investment strategy targets 30%+ investment internal rate of return (IRR) by investing in private technology companies.

Draper Global targets companies in their growth phase and aims to provide investors with higher returns and lower risks over a shorter investment period than traditional venture capital funds.

We believe that our strategy will provide a higher return than is achieved in most venture capital funds.

Source: Cambridge Associates. Average IRR for the indices represents years 2007-2016. Only a portion of the indices representing venture capital investments reflect the results of growth-stage venture investments, and no inference should be taken that the Fund’s performance will correlate to performance of these indices. 

Note: An investment in the Fund involves risk and there is no assurance that the Fund will achieve its objectives in part or in whole.

Draper Global believes that its fund will exceed these indices
