Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What is Inventures II?

    Inventures II is a private Impact Venture Capital fund that invests early stage capital in smart and innovative European SMEs addressing at least one Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) drafted by the United Nations.

  3. How does Spreds select the investment opportunities?

    The Impact VC Tracer selects companies in which the fund Inventures II has invested and who answer the following criterias:

    1. Companies addressing challenges listed in the following 5 SDGs:

      • SDG 3 Good Health & Well Being
      • SDG 4 Quality Education

      • Based in Europe with a focus on Belgium, France, UK, Luxembourg and The Netherlands

  4. What return on investment can I expect ?

    Investing in start-ups is risky. Indeed statistics typically shows that 30 to 40% of start-ups fail, 40 to 50% survive but don’t bring much return on investment, while the rest (10 to 20%) succeed with a financial gain, meaning there is a return on investment, as the company gets acquired or goes public on the stock market. That’s why it is crucial to diversify in order to mitigate the risk. In this case only, the wins of the 10-20% of the start-ups that succeed may counterbalance losses and provide you with a decent return on your portfolio.

    When investing in start-ups you should always take into account that most of them won’t succeed. This is a reality. By investing in a portfolio of start-ups you diversify your risk and increase your chances of investing in a successful one.

    This is why it is highly recommended to diversify your investments.

  5. Can I opt-out from an investment?

    Once you are notified that your Tracer has identified a new investment opportunity and after receiving the necessary documentation from us, you will have a total of 14 working days to inform yourself and decide if you invest or opt-out from the investment.
