Investment Funds


Our Funds

Cultivate Ventures General Partnership (CVCOF-GP) founded the CVCOF family of funds, in 2018. CVCOF-GP managed funds leverage an in-house team of experienced financial, real estate, legal and accounting professionals, including full in-house OZ investment and compliance teams. CVCOF offers both traditional real estate funds, and our Qualified Opportunity Zone Funds open to eligible capital gains for OZ qualified investments. Since launch, CVCOF-GP has raised and closed CVCOF-I and CVCOF-II. Currently open is our CVCOF-III and CVCOF-IV Funds. To date, CVCOF-GP has raised $13.9M, and has total assets under management of $24.5M.


Investment Strategy

Cultivate Ventures' Funds target a complete suite of real estate for development, adaptive reuse, or investment in other real estate funds. Our funds and pipeline are diversified across a portfolio of high-yield real estate sectors, including: industrial, residential, hospitality, health care, and real estate technology.  Portfolio allocation also targets long-term capital appreciation and short/near-term income to allow for short, medium, and long-term cash distribution planning and flexibility and smoother returns. Where possible, we develop and manage assets internally (via our in-house development group), or align with partner developers/funds for acquisition build-out, management and/or sale. ​​

Value Drivers

Cultivate Ventures Funds are typically 10 years with intent to return capital in five years, targeting annualized cash yields of 5%+ (after Y3), a pre-tax IRR of 15%+ per investment depending on risk profile, and 4x plus exit multiples. These returns are driven by a number of factors, including: 

  • Capitalizing off-market opportunities and undervalued property to optimize entry pricing. 

  • Identifying high cap rate adaptive reuse opportunities to drive higher rents and capital appreciation. 

  • Invest in upper trending hard real estate to maximize downside risk and reserve capital.

  • Leverage debt and other tax advantage investment structures to maximize investment upside. 

  • Take maximum advantage of complicated OZ rules to drive incremental OZ-bolstered returns while minimizing compliance costs through in-house expertise.
