- Corporate strategy development
- Increase competitive advantage of existing product lines
- Develop complimentary new lines of business
- Identify new go-to-market partners
West Capital assists in effectively engaging in this ecosystem by providing a discipline that is consistent with large company cultures, but at the same time enhances the innovation process in small venture backed companies. Core to our partnership is sourcing and executing strategic venture investments, however “investment” varies based on the stage of development of the target company.
Most importantly, we provide our clients with a portfolio management discipline that establishes culturally consistent metrics and objective measurement.

Access and Quality
The West Capital Partners Program is designed to provide qualified investors with superior access to quality investments in the venture asset class. Leveraging our corporate clients, we provide access to transactions backed by elite, national investment syndicates that are typically only available to professional, private equity and venture fund investors.
Flexibility and Transparency
West Capital Partners’ members invest on a deal by deal basis and pay fees only on invested capital. This provides greater flexibility and transparency than a committed investment in a traditional venture fund. Features of the program include:
- Pledge fund structure
- Annually renewed Advisory Services Agreement
- No upfront fee
- Annual Management Fee based on Invested Capital
West Capital Advisors provides professional management of all aspects of the investment process.
- Deal sourcing
- Disciplined due diligence
- Analysis and modeling
- Professional investment recommendation process
- Deal structuring
- Oversight and reporting through exit
As experienced venture capital investors and former entrepreneurs, we founded West Capital to be the ideal co-investor. West Capital is structured to be a value added participant, typically in Series B or later investment syndicates led by established institutional venture funds.
