(September 12, 2018 – Tucson, Arizona) Shot Ventures hosted their first biannual event, Capital & Cocktails, and brought together over 30 capital sources including accredited high net worth investors, private equity and venture capital firms, including top-tier financial institutions like UBS, to enjoy a night dedicated to investors. The event was a jump-off to the upcoming December 2018 Investor Influence Awards to be held in Arizona, and was highlighted as “an exclusive event to recognize investors who are doubling down on people and their value to our community”.

The private signature sunset event was unique for Tucson and Phoenix, bringing together “outside” national and international wealth to acknowledge Arizona’s growing tech market and the critical investment needed for growth. Several groups hosted talks prior to the event to not only discuss deal flow…but to create actionable processes, deal requirements, and best practices for investment, and take those to be more highly visible to the state.

Fletcher McCusker of UAVenture Capital Receives 2018 Investor Influence Award for Community Sustainability

Featured Guests Included David Carlson, Investor and Tech Mogul of Eagleview and Metloop

The evening also featured local powerhouses of tech and real estate investment, including Fletcher McCusker, CEO of UAVenture Capital Fund, LLC who was recognized at the event as the recipient of the 2018 Investor Influence Award for Community Sustainability. The auspicious environment brought together the investor community on a very different level than has been done before…with a little fun.

These are the kind of cocktail parties that happen all over Palo Alto but not so much here, so this really unusual for us,” said Fletcher McCusker, CEO of UAVenture Capital Fund. “The biggest problem our entrepreneurs have today is capital. We didn’t raise a dollar in Tucson, we kept our companies here, but we had to go to Paris, London, New York, Boston, Dallas, and Silicon Valley for money. What we are all doing together now is just trying to making it a little easier for an inventor to raise capital.”

The signature event was presented by BMW of Tucson, and special guests included Michael DiGrazia from UBS Financial Services, Inc. who presented the award to McCusker and later introduced David Carlson (Palm Lane Capital – Texas), Joseph Snyder (Lannister Holdings, Inc. – Phoenix), and Andy Noy (Consensys Capital – New York). Capital & Cocktails marks a new and shared mission by Shot Ventures and partner firms to create investor community and unlock Arizona’s isolated marketplace.

“Arizona investors are normally isolated and often do deals in a silo,” said Shot Ventures’ Partner, Dominique Villela. “This means the new generation of tech entrepreneurs and their funders are limited in learning about local success and even some failures. Shot Ventures is changing that by increasing visibility of those opportunities, building an investor community, and solidifying Arizona’s position in the U.S. economy.”

Since conception, Shot Ventures has been aimed at providing companies with investor guided packaging and highly specific pre-capital services. The firm grew in 2017 from providing investor-tailored services to structuring their own fund and expanding investor networks internationally. Shot Ventures has supported upwards of $300MM in capital raises and has been focused on creating new systems to ease due diligence activities for funders and founders alike, ultimately helping investors identify fundable targets more rapidly.

    With almost everything that appears to be developing within this subject matter, a significant percentage of viewpoints tend to be fairly radical. On the other hand, I beg your pardon, because I can not subscribe to your whole strategy, all be it exciting none the less. It appears to everyone that your comments are generally not completely rationalized and in reality you are your self not entirely convinced of your point. In any case I did take pleasure in reading through it.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
