About The Independent Fund

A note from Steve Kraskin about the Independent Fund:

After retiring from the practice of law where I focused on representing rural telecom businesses throughout the nation, I wanted to stay connected with the industry.  I decided to establish an investment vehicle that would contribute to the companies and communities with which I was privileged to work. 


The Independent Fund is a private investment fund with a capital base in the seven figures.  The fund acts as an “angel” or “seed” investor, providing capital for business start-ups or new ventures initiated by established businesses in exchange for convertible debt or equity in the new business or venture.   The fund generally seeks to place investments from $50,000 to $500,000, but will consider both smaller and larger investment opportunities.”


The Independent Fund is a private fund, and it is not seeking and will not accept investment in the FundThe Independent Fund is seeking good business ideas in which to invest.  A fundamental investment prerequisite is that business seeking the investment must intend to produce a good or service that could potentially be used by rural telecom providers to increase their margins through the generation of new revenues or reductions in their expenses.
