Forefront Venture Partners (formerly Barbara Corcoran Venture Partners) is one of the largest and most successful AngelList syndicates. Investors ask us all the time how they can participate in our deals. By backing Forefront Venture Partners, you will have priority access to our proprietary dealflow. You never have any obligation to invest, but as a backer, you will have the opportunity to invest alongside us in every deal. You'll get a guaranteed allocation in every deal so you don't miss out on those deals you choose to invest in. We are particularly interested in bringing value-added co-investors into our deals and our syndicate is a good way to do that.
We are dedicated to helping angel investors build a diversified portfolio of promising, high-growth startups. By providing an unparalleled level of information and transparency about each company we invest in, we enable you to make an informed and educated decision about each investment. We also work closely with our portfolio companies to provide you with regular, ongoing reporting after investing. We take pride in being the most investor-friendly syndicate on AngelList.
Our robust deal flow and negotiating leverage, combined with intense due diligence and selective vetting, provide us with a portfolio of many notable, high-growth start-ups.
In short, we are disciplined investors who ask a lot of questions and do a ton of research.
We invest in companies that meet these criteria:
- Generating revenue with consistent growth
- Great founding teams
- Solving a real pain point
- Proprietary or highly differentiated
- Enormous potential for growth in large target markets
- Reasonable valuation reflecting a realistic assessment of the company's progress to date and prospects for success. We do not chase deals.
- We have a strong preference for companies that are demonstrating early evidence of having identified efficient, scalable, paid customer acquisition channels, a low ratio of Customer Acquisition Cost to Lifetime Value and a quick time to recoup Customer Acquisition Cost.
- Minimum post-close runway of 12 months
- Capital efficient and can scale quickly
