Tech-Rx’s Micro Private Equity Investment Model – μPE® – captures promising opportunities among faltering early-stage companies using a non-traditional combination of new capital paired with active, hands-on management in a way that aligns the interests of current investors, new investors and the company’s management team.
With all of the advantages of late-stage investing applied to early-stage companies, the μPE® approach is a unique, promising and enjoyable alternative to conventional start-up investing.
μPE® Represents an Untapped Class of Rare Investment Opportunities
Lower risk than investing in a brand-new start-up.
Our investment decisions contain fewer unknowns, because we have the invaluable benefit of knowledge not available at launch and can filter for companies with problems we know we can solve.
Shorter exit periods.
We target 24 to 36 month exits vs. the historical average of 42 months for traditional angel investments.1
Better risk-adjusted returns.
Based on our team’s track record as shown below, we project 3 to 5x returns vs. the historical average of 2.6x for traditional angel investments.1

This chart shows achievements of Tech-Rx team members in earlier rescues. Each of these companies was on the verge of shutdown with an estimated salvage value of less than $1 million. In every case, the team member served as CEO or in a C-level capacity directly leading the rescue.
These results reflect a 12.4x average return per company and a 5.1x overall (cash-on-cash) return across the portfolio. Each rescue was accomplished in less than 42 months.
