Assure presents What's Going on in Venture with Dan Engel, founder of Santa Barbara Venture Partners. Assure CEO Jeremy Neilson talked with Dan about his use of sidecar SPVs alongside his venture fund and how his SPVs will more than double his AUM.  Dan further explained how using SPVs is a game-changer for emerging fund managers.

"There's articles that I've read about how you don't make any money on your first fund. And they're popular articles. And I'm always thinking at the end, "Oh, you missed SPVs. That's the way to do it."

Through the SPVs, the math changed very much. And all of a sudden, there was an opportunity for us to make a really significant amount of money when we added on the SPVs onto the original fund amount."
