The strategy for TrueBridge funds-of-funds is to invest in a concentrated portfolio of well-established, high-performing and typically difficult to access venture capital and growth equity managers, in order to earn a superior return to both public equity markets and top-quartile venture capital benchmarks. TrueBridge believes this can be best achieved by managing its funds with a long-term, global, endowment-like perspective.
To execute this strategy, TrueBridge regularly conducts an intensive, quantitative and data-driven analysis of individual venture capital and growth equity firms, as well as an in-depth examination of the industry as a whole. TrueBridge then relies on the relationships and networks the team has built over the last 25+ years as private equity investors, entrepreneurs and members of the foundation and endowment community to assist in understanding and interpreting this information.
TrueBridge has a mutually exclusive relationship with the Kauffman Fellows Program, a two-year apprenticeship designed to educate, train, and network future leaders of the venture capital industry. This strategic partnership allows TrueBridge to tap into the deep and broad network of the over 500 member Kauffman Fellows Society for insightful and in-depth due diligence, as well as assistance in generating attractive deal flow and building meaningful relationships with elite venture and growth managers. In exchange, TrueBridge donates a material portion of its carried interest to the Kauffman Fellows Program to build a long-term endowment and enable its future success.
With over 100 Kauffman Fellows and venture industry professionals directly invested in TrueBridge as limited partners, TrueBridge enjoys unique investment access to top-performing managers, as well as tremendous insight into industry and firm-specific trends. The TrueBridge team continues to harness the power of its network to build a concentrated portfolio of elite venture and growth managers.
