We are financial investors with an industrial background. We love innovation and progress. We strive to remain humble and curious, every day. We created from scratch a strategy to invest in the best venture capital opportunities globally. We invest in people, supporting the journey of entrepreneurs and funds, and acting as a loyal limited partner. We know how difficult it is to be an entrepreneur and we know how hard it is to get access to the best investments (we have been clients of financial institutions!). We align our investors’ interests with ours by providing the access to the same outstanding opportunities, at the same conditions. We put our investors and our investments first. Rancilio Cube SICAF Spa is a fixed capital investment company, supervised by the Bank of Italy, which offers an exclusive investment strategy in the international “venture capital” asset class, with a deep diversification through the best funds and direct investments held in the proprietary portfolio. In the company there are already over 100 investments, for the most part in international VC funds, built with patience in almost ten years of work by the Rancilio family, primarily with their own resources and now also with the raising of third party capital. The model is also fully aligned among investors, as there is no performance or management fee, but only the proportional sharing of operating costs.
