Who can be member of the HoriZen Investment Club (HZIC)?
Membership to HZIC is open to High Net Worth Individuals, successful entrepreneurs, family offices and investors who have a keen interest to invest in profitable and growing SaaS & internet businesses.
What does the HoriZen Capital team do?
HoriZen are acting as General Partners on all their deals. The team sources, negotiates, structures and executes buy-out deals then takes charge of management to grow the companies it invests into.
When leverage is possible, HoriZen is also in charge of finding and structuring debt financing or quasi-equity financing in order to provide higher leveraged return on investment to their LPs.
The HoriZen Capital team is made of a combination of finance experts, experienced online and SaaS entrepreneurs and Digital Growth experts with specializations such in all areas of high growth sales and growth marketing including; SEO, Design, Conversion Rate Optimization, Paid Advertising management, Link building, Sales Webinars etc.
What type of deals will HZIC’s members be presented with?
HoriZen focuses on acquiring a majority stake in companies generating between $1 MM and $5 MM in Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR), which are profitable, have delivered an historical growth of 5% - 30% year on year, and have a monthly churn rate of less than 5%. HoriZen Capital is typically looking to close deals at a valuation within a 2-3x Annual Recurring Revenue (ARR) range.
The companies that HoriZen approach are generally bootstrapped and the range of investment ticket size is generally expected to fall between $1 MM USD and $10 MM USD.
For each of its investment, HoriZen expects to fully reinvest the first year of the business cash flow to accelerate the growth of the portfolio company. After the first year, HoriZen aims at distributing the cash flow to its LPs on a quarterly basis and to provide an exit to LPs after 4-5 years of operations and growth.

HoriZen Investment Process
Horizen has a clearly defined investment process and involves it's members at two crucial points to ensure each member is comfortable making an educated investment decision.
- After a first high-level financial analyses and broad valuation have been agreed on
- Before a formal LOI is submitted
For each deal, HoriZen will set up a dedicated shared data room drive and deal details for interested HZIC members, where members can easily access relevant documents related to the ongoing deal.
HoriZen Capital Fees
Horizen Capital fee structure has been designed to ensure full alignment with its LPs and to provide an attractive alternative to the traditional PE funds who charge LPs 2% of total funds committed per year for the full duration of the fund. (ie. 20% of total amount invested + carried interest).
Horizen’s fees are split into two components. Deal-related fees and a Management Upside fee.
To better align with investor’s interests, deal-related fees are only paid upon successful closing of a deal and a significant part of the deal-related fees will be rolled into the investment by HoriZen Capital. The Management Upside fee is based on the return provided to LPs after HoriZen takes over the management of the company it acquires.
1 – Quarterly meeting attendance
2 – No right to individually pursue deals brought forward by HoriZen

Referral bonus for members
If a member would like to refer a deal to us, either to benefit from our investment and management services or to have other interested members to co-invest in the deal, we will provide a referral bonus, rolled into the deal, under the condition that the Transaction is successfully closed.
