    The Sapling Fund LP is an early stage venture capital fund focused primarily on companies that leverage technology to create major disruptive improvements in multi-billion dollar verticals. The leadership team leverages a network of relationships across the US, and the efficiency of the internet to collaborate with legendary Angels, VCs, PEs, and industry leading organizations. The firm identifies private 'Sapling' companies with a 3x-15x ROI profile on a 5 year timeline. A portion of the Sapling Fund is earmarked for investment into Alumni businesses from the General Partners' and Team's Alma Maters. A press release issued May of 2014 states that the firm has raised a $50,000,000 fund.
