For Compassionate Capitalists committed to investing in entrepreneurs to bring innovation to market, create jobs, and create wealth, deciding which investments are most likely to succeed is a challenge.  The market operates on an assumption that only one out of 10 will produce enough of a return to offset the losses and small gains generated by the other 9.   For the most part, the approach to investing in entrepreneurs is an inexact science.

True equality comes with economic prosperity. The Compassionate Capitalist Podcast will explore the history of black enterprise, and government policies intended to aid in economic prosperity, and the racist practices that created barriers and obstacles to African American prosperity so that wealth and education gap which exists today has its roots dating back to the late 1800.  History shows time and time again how naive, well intentioned white people, in the spirit of compromise, released authority and control to other white people that had a sole intent to harm and hinder black people from achieving equality - socially and economically.  There are many examples of progress being made and initiatives seeking to grow black entrepreneurship, wealth creation, and reinvestment into the communities that have been neglected and abandoned.   As we look forward with these new sources of funding and entrepreneur development, we must also look back to see how to fix the fissure that over a 100 years of systemic racism has caused in our communities.  If you are opposed to giving hand outs, then give a hand up.  Work to get the loopholes that enable racists to harm and prevent the success and empowerment of people of color out of our financial, judicial, and legislative systems.

IPOs get the big press.   Mergers & Acquisitions are usually private transactions.  Startup Founders and their investors plan for an 'exit' that sometimes may be an Initial Public Offering - IPO - but usually the most likely exit happens much sooner than an IPO, when the company gets acquired by a fund or another bigger company.   Listen to this episode of the Compassionate Capitalist Podcast show to host Karen Rands, and guest Ted Bender, discuss the differences in types of acquisitions:  horizontal, vertical, consolidation, strategic, market expansion, roll-up and  how they might pursued as an exit strategy.  Most acquisitions are calculated as a multiple on EBITDA.  For startups and early stage companies, sometimes there is a intangible factor such as the strategic value of tech or customer set that isn't measured by profit.   And then there is 'timing'... when do you sell and does there come a time of diminishing return?  Ted Bender is an expert in the M&A space, founding Croft & Bender, a highly regarded Investment Bank, with 3 private equity funds that invested in more than forty companies across various industries and growth stages. Currently Ted owns & operates TJ Bender & Company, which provides M&A, capital raising, and strategic advisory services to businesses, family offices, and private equity firms.

Hall Martin, storied angel investor from Texas, returns to the Compassionate Capitalist Podcast show with host Karen Rands to talk about his novel approach to negotiating a guarranteed ROI when investing in private companies. Both entrepreneurs and investors often focus their attention on the potential ROI of an investment based on an acquisition exit in 5 years. More times than not, that type of exit doesn't materialize because the company doesn't maintain the rate of growth originially forecasted to achieve the 4X in 5 years.   As time goes on, the IRR - the Internal Rate of Return, lowers compared to a straight ROI multiple calculation. Under Hall's 3X in 3Years model, investors and entrepreneurs establish a contracted guarranteed return for the investor if the entrepreneur doesn't hit their milestones, misses their next round of venture finance and therefore fails to scale as originally proposed. This method benefits the entrepreneur to add incentive to their first money in investors, and benefits the investors because they know they have the option to get a return in 3 years that can be put back to work in the community.  Karen and Hall cover many additional topics too.  This podcast was also created as a video and is available here: Youtube Hall Martin is the founder and CEO of TEN Capital Network.  His involvement in building and leading angel investor groups spans decades, beginning with the Central Texas Angel Network through to his current involvement with the Baylor Angel Network. His work with entrepreneurs also spans decades and many organizations.  Learn more at http://TENCapital.group Karen Rands is the best selling author of Inside Secrets to Angel Investors.
