Why do startups use SPVs?
Startups use SPVs to ensure their future growth and follow-on financings won’t be at risk. Having too many individual stockholders can make venture capitalists skeptical, require companies to go public before they're ready, and make gathering stockholder approvals a challenge.
With an SPV, founders can have an unlimited number of smaller investors grouped into one large entity, with voting power directed by a Lead Investor.
