 Unique Portfolio Management

Quantum Fund OC, LLC manages the portfolio companies uniquely in several aspects.

 
 

Meet the Team

 
  • The General Partners carefully evaluate portfolio companies by utilizing their extensive industry experience and staying in their lane to only select innovative technologies that fill gaps in emerging markets. The fund will likely not make passive investments, but only investments into companies where the General Partners can gain majority control.​​

 

  • The General Partners’ Orange County-based Contract Manufacturing Organization (CMO), with vast experience for developing and manufacturing catheter-based neurovascular products, will house each project and perform the development through limited market release and subsequent commercialization. This eliminates the need for separate brick and mortar set-ups and staffing for each Newco, will increase development speed, and reduce funding requirements.

 

  • The General Partners will not take any salaries from the management fees. A management fee of 1% only will be used to cover General Partners' and Manager's general operating and legal expenses.

 

  • The General Partners will not share in any exit profit distributions until there is at least a 3X return to the Limited Partners.

  • Newcos will routinely have an equal equity split between the Founders and the Limited Partners. This eliminates the need for priced rounds and creates aligned goals for the fund and all Newcos.

 

  • The fund will focus on providing seed funding to the Orange County Medical Device ecosystem to sustain the innovation local cycle.
