Especially given the disruptive power of AI, which is increasing every month.

Are governments agile enough to regulate? Is profit maximization going to stop?

A new style of investment opportunity

In line with Alkemio’s choice of Steward-Ownership, some investment features differ from a typical venture capital backed startup. Designed for long-term investors who really care about Alkemio’s purpose.
  • Guided by stewards, not shareholders. Stewards hold and control the voting shares to ensure the business is managed to achieve the purpose.
  • Alkemio’s purpose and independence are legally locked in. An independent 3rd party holds a special share with a veto right on certain decisions such as a sale or change of the purpose of the company.
  • For all stakeholders, not just shareholders. Investor economic returns are capped at levels that provide attractive returns. Excess profits will be used/donated to benefit society. Profit serves purpose.
  • With investor economic returns coming from dividends and/or share repurchase, instead of a sale of the company. Investors may see to sell their shares privately.
  • Simple setup, easy to scale. A single share class for all investors, including founders. The capped returns and steward control mean there are no cap table, valuation, or investor voting rights discussions. So management can focus on scaling a very successful business.

The Why and How of the Economic Returns!

The capping of economic returns to all investors and staff helps ensure alignment of all parties with the purpose of benefiting society.

The cap level for early investors starts at 3x-3.5x, depending on timing of investment. From 4 years after the investment date, the outstanding amount payable to an investor will start to accrue at a certain annual rate, such that the effective cap level can increase to 4x-5x.

ExampleYear 1Year 2-4Year 5Year 6Year 7Year 8
Investment amount€1,000
Initial dividend entitlement amount€3,000
Dividend amount in each year€0€0€0-€200-€300-€500
Annual increase due to accrual€0€0€210€211€204€184
Outstanding dividend entitlement amount€3,000€3,000€3,210€3,221€3,125€2,809
Effective capped return multiple3.
  • A cap of 3x means an investment of €1,000 will create a dividend entitlement for that investor which starts at €3,000.
  • 4 years after the investment date, the outstanding dividend entitlement amount will accrue at an annual rate of 7%.
  • Each year the outstanding dividend entitlement amount will (a) decrease by dividends received and (b) increase at the accrual rate.

The full mechanism, including issuance of certificates, is described in schedule C of the Alkemio Holding Shareholders Agreement (SHA).

The Purpose Foundation has conducted a great case study on Alkemio, which you can find here.
