I had a large nest egg in my retirement account. Blue Ivy was the perfect investment vehicle to do something new, alternative, and to further diversify my personal portfolio. I also appreciate the secure online investor portal that provides me with interesting details and news on the companies which I’m invested in.

A lot of investors speak about value add, but David and the team at Blue Ivy & Alumni Ventures actually provide value. In nearly every deal and with every entrepreneur that approaches me about raising money I share the not-so-secret weapon suggestion of Alumni Ventures.

Investing through Blue Ivy Ventures has been a fascinating experience. Every step of the way in the investing journey has been outlined with clarity and well-managed, with an easy to use website and good reporting systems. I'm very happy with Blue Ivy and definitely recommend investing with them to anyone who is looking to add venture as a professionally managed asset class in a balanced portfolio.

My portfolio was in good shape: I had stocks, bonds, mutual funds, and even some real estate investments. But I had a big hole when it came to venture investing. Through a classmate, I learned about the Blue Ivy Ventures approach, and it just made sense. It feels good to know that I’ve got this part of my portfolio covered too.

I’ve been thrilled by my experience investing with Blue Ivy Ventures. As an investor, making the investment in BIV was clear and well-organized, using state-of-the-art digital communications and platforms. I highly recommend investing with Blue Ivy Ventures as a professional way to diversify your investment portfolio with venture funded companies. The opportunity to periodically participate in deal syndications also allows me to add on to BIV investments that I find to be highly compelling.

It has been rewarding to participate in the growth and performance of the Blue Ivy Fund over the past five years. Blue Ivy pays close attention to investor communication and service, and continues to innovate its comprehensive online functionality for transactions and reporting to complement direct contact with the managing director and fund administrators. Blue Ivy has established a creative and effective model to easily make venture investments part of our family’s portfolio.
