TCA members look for opportunities where the capital sought will take the company to the next level, and materially increase its valuation. TCA investments often bridge the gap between proof of concept to a larger VC round. A company must be able to demonstrate how it will use members' investment to complete at least some of the following:



  • Proof of concept

  • Prototype of its product or technology

  • Patent filing (for broad patent)

  • Product development

  • Market research

  • Product launch

  • Major contract or customers

  • Management team

  • Reduce other investment risks
