Private equity is increasingly dipping down to finance startups.PWC s most recent MoneyTree report for Q2 2016 underscores this point.The fund wants to utilize an alternative financing structure to support a valuable niche in an evolving ecosystem.BJ Lackland, Lighter Capital s CEO, explains his company s model in the language of royalties.In exchange for capital, companies sign an agreement to pay a percentage of revenue, typically around 6 percent per month, until a pre-set multiple of the principal is paid-off.In practice, if the fund made 50 loans for $200,000 over an average of four years with a 1.5X multiple, the fund would make an 18.4 percent internal rate of return IRR .

It looks like Apple's $1 billion investment into Didi Chuxing, the Uber of China, is already paying off.Apple said in May that it had invested in Didi, as what was later revealed as part of a $7.3 billion funding round alongside Alibaba and SoftBank which put the Chinese company's valuation at $28 billion.Now, after Didi Chuxing announced that it is buying Uber's Chinese operation, the Chinese ride-hailing giant is valued at $35 billion, according to Bloomberg, or around $36 billion, according to the Wall Street Journal.Assuming Apple's investment in Didi is straightforward, that would suggest it's gotten a 25% return on its investment in a span of just a few months.That's not a bad rate of return, even though Apple doesn't exactly need the money.Also note that Apple is now, after the Didi-Uber deal, an investor in Uber, now that Didi has invested $1 billion into Uber.That should keep Apple CEO Tim Cook and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick on friendly terms.Questions about strategy But how the Uber-Didi deal plays into Apple's long-term strategy to possibly break into the transportation industry is a lot less clear.When asked about the Didi investment during last week's conference call to discuss Apple's quarterly earnings, Cook offered three reasons: "From a Didi point of view, we see that as, one, a great financial investment.
Like startups, most venture capital firms fail- at least in terms of returns.In our latest interview with Dave McClure, Founder @ 500 Startups, he argues that poor venture returns are the fault of focused investment strategies.Instead, McClure argues that a high-volume, diversified investment strategy delivers consistently stronger cash on cash returns than a more concentrated thesis.So why should the VC industry consider a less concentrated, potential even spray and pray approach to investing?If we surmise that unicorns happen 1-2% of the time, it is logical to adopt a portfolio size that includes at least 100 companies.McClure backed up this thesis by breaking down the return profile of 500 s portfolio.

This sponsored post is produced by Klipfolio.Every startup needs capital — money it can use to either get off the ground or ramp up growth.A small VC fund might contain $50 million, a big one $1 billion.Nobody, angel or VC, is going to put a significant amount of money into your firm and walk away.That means giving up a portion of your control and ownership.VCs make their money by helping a young company grow and gain in value, and then cashing in a few years later when the company is sold or goes public.They expect a huge return on their investment — 2 to 10 times of what they put in, or more.Why so big a return?Because not every firm with VC money succeeds.This mindset affects how they view their investments.There are two basic exits that allow VCs to make their money: either the company gets bought out the acquisition exit or it goes public the IPO exit .A VC fund is a pot of money that is raised from wealthy individuals or institutions, locked in place, and then placed into fundable companies.Each fund contains a set amount of money, so that the investors can calculate the IRR investment rate of return on that amount.As a result, a venture capitalist will often have several active funds in its portfolio.The money in a fund is not doled out all at once; the fund s managers decide where and when.Part of this fund will be allocated to initial investments, and the balance will be reserved for follow-on investments.
