The Network may also consider investments over a million dollars depending upon the size of the requirement.
Fund managements and proposals are individually assessed by members of the group. In addition, they might create some startup opportunities with entrepreneurs. All such recommended opportunities will then be presented at the Network’s monthly forum as sponsored deals, ie, there is a member who feels the deal is worthwhile taking forward and will proactively do so.
