Vocap Launches Fund III
Based on the continued success of its first two funds, Vocap is excited to announce the launch of its third venture capital fund. With Fund III, Vocap will continue its focus on investing in high growth technology companies seeking their first or second round of institutional funding. The initial close occurred on June 30, achieving 65% of the target fund size, and included the participation of many new LPs along with 100% participation from all Fund I and Fund II LPs. Dialogue with additional LPs is ongoing and Vocap anticipates a second close in the coming months.
     
“Fund III will build upon the strategy that has driven top quartile returns for our initial two funds," said Mike Becker, Managing Director. "Our team will continue to apply our extensive experience in private investing and relevant operational knowhow to capture the substantial value created by the transformational shifts occurring in technology. Much of this value now accrues prior to reaching the public markets." 

“Our focus at Vocap is on early stage opportunities in B2B Software, Consumer Internet, Healthcare IT, and Tech-enabled Services,” said Vinny Olmstead, Co-Founder and Managing Director. “We resonate with entrepreneurs by providing deep operational experience and stage-appropriate check size, key differentiators that help us win in competitive situations." 

The Vocap team looks forward to continuing to help entrepreneurs drive innovation and growth in the Southern and East Coast ecosystems.

Fund III features two high-growth investments to date:
