    Founded in 2010, Akkadian Ventures is a direct secondary investment firm focused on providing liquidity to early employees of venture-backed businesses. Akkadian offers tailored and unique solutions for companies and employees, with key benefits that include speed, tax efficiency and rigorous respect for confidentiality. Akkadian has also developed a proprietary, data-driven methodology to identify which private technology companies are entering hyper-growth and uses this data to 'pre-approve' companies for its liquidity programs, dramatically accelerating the time to transaction for entrepreneurs. Akkadian Ventures announced October 2014 the closing of its third fund focused exclusively on helping entrepreneurs and investors achieve their liquidity goals. Akkadian Ventures III was oversubscribed, exceeding its original target of $50 million. The fund is comprised of a direct secondary fund with additional investing capacity through co-investment funds. Akkadian Ventures III brings the firm's total assets under management to $108 million.
