Asgard is a leading investment firm in young Artificial Intelligence companies. Through Asgard you receive exclusive insights into a fast growing market, learn about the newest technologies, increase your network and benefit financially from successful companies.

Venture Capital is a form of financing for young and growing companies. Companies receive capital, network and advice in exchange for company shares or security tokens. Venture Capital firms receive their investment back when the portfolio company is sold or listed public through an ICO or IPO.

We believe that the Venture Capital business model is broken. Currently, it is very difficult to invest in Venture Capital firms. You need to have a lot of capital and access to the right people beforehand. We aim to open the Venture Capital market to global investors who want to participate financially from the emerging digital industry.

Once you sign up, you may receive an invitation to invest. During that process, you have to submit your data according to legal regulations for KYC (know-you-customer) and AML (anti-money-laundry) laws. After you have completed and passed the digital process, you can transfer your investment via fiat money (EUR/USD) or crypto currencies (BTC/ETH) to a given address. After the end of the token sale, each investor will receive tokens.

Asgard will use the funds to invest into companies over the next 3 to 5 years. Once we have invested the capital, we will work hard to increase the valuation of our portfolio companies and sell our shares at the right moment. The earnings of those exits, IPOs and ICOs will be shared with every token holder. We will transfer the capital to a bank account or wallet of your choice.

Trading tokens will happen over our private investors platform subject to terms and conditions as laid out in the investors agreement.

After the token sale is finished or closed, tokens will be distributed to investors.

If not all tokens are assigned to investors, they will be passive or burned. That means those tokens will not receive a share of future earnings. However, we may sell those tokens to new investors over time and will add the received capital to the existing fund at the same price.

The management team will not receive tokens. Our interest is in investing the capital raised and achieving outstanding returns. When we pay back the initial capital to investors, we will receive a 20 % performance fee.

No advisor will receive tokens. Tokens will only be given to people and companies that have invested capital into the fund.

We will take a 2,5% yearly management fee on the collected capital. We will use it to pay for salaries, lawyers, advisors, rent and other expenses. This management fee is needed to ensure that we have access to the strongest companies, can support them and make the best investment decisions.

There are no limitations on how you can invest. You can invest as a private person, for a third party or with a company. However, you have to comply with your national jurisdiction for token purchases.

To comply with German law, a minimum investment of 200,000 EUR is required.

The founding partners will add the exiting portfolio (4 companies) and cash to the token sale – combined value of 1,250,000 EUR – and the founding partners will receive tokens in exchange.

We will publish a quarterly detailed report. Additionally, we will inform all token holders about relevant newsworthy updates, like new investments when they occur.

The common legal basis is the investment contract. It describes the legal setup, fees, costs, investment focus, fund size, dilution protection, pay outs and advisory board. The fund, as well as the management company, are located in Germany and comply with European laws.

Due diligence is the process of learning more about strategy, team, finances and legal information before making an investment. We publish most documents on the investment board, like our white paper, investment contract and pitch deck. Please feel free to contact us any time to talk with us or meet us in person. If more documents are needed to make a decision, please let us know. We will be more than happy to provide them.

We intend to hire two people for the investment team and one person for operations.

Yes, there is the risk you can lose all of your investment. However, our interests are aligned in that we aim to increase the invested capital. We highly recommend that you only invest in Asgard’s token sale if you could bear possible losses and times of illiquidity.

We maintain clear identification of all token holders in case the blockchain fails or is not accessible in the future. We have the capability to return our earnings, even without a running blockchain.

We will try to balance the amount of capital we hold in fiat and crypto currencies to minimize transactions costs and devaluations.

Even if we optimize the tax and legal setup, there will be situations when taxes have to be paid. This also depends on your personal taxation jurisdiction.

We are aware of the risks and work with the highest possible security measures. We encrypt data and run a decentralized infrastructure on several systems. Security and the protection of your data is very important to us.
