Cottonwood works closely with entrepreneurs, providing assistance from the earliest stages. Successful early stage investments require significant allotments of time to help define the business, link it with resources, provide feedback, recruit additional talent and raise capital. Historically, early stage institutional investors spend three to five days per month on each company.
Cottonwood Technology Fund will make two to three investments per year over a four-year period, thus allowing itself to employ the necessary time to assist entrepreneurs. Cottonwood also relies on its in-house experience and extensive network of technical and industry advisors, as well as drawing from the expertise and diversity of its investors.
