The combined power of entrepreneurs and investors
AVIVO Capital is a venture capital fund designed to support fearless entrepreneurs in their conquest for global markets. We provide growth capital and share insights, experience, and network of proven global entrepreneurs and investors to make it happen.
Our strategy
Invest in CEE-based companies with a proven product and help them go global.
We offer complete unique VC package of flexible capital, entrepreneurial and investment experience.
  • Unique
    team’s competence

    We have seen this movie before. We have built global companies out of CEE. We have invested over $200m in growth equity as well as decided on buying and selling Unicorns. We delivered consistent 3x returns to our investors on our VC portfolio.

    Now experienced investors join forces with accomplished business builders to help your companies make the most of their global potential, through our investment, business insight and fund-raising competence of our team and our network.
  • Unique
    startup

    We invest in companies that solve important problems of the modern world engaging teams with exceptional skills and hungry for global success. We expect at least a validated business model or commercialized technology and a proven product-market fit.


  • Unique
    investment scope

    We support founders mainly from Round A through growth and expansion Rounds B and C. This way we can provide startups with longer-term financial support than a typical VC fund. We might invest in pre-A Round on an exception basis together with another renowned VC fund.
  • Unique
    investment product

    As a 100% private fund we have exceptional flexibility in terms of financing. We tailor investment to company needs, not the other way round. Together with founders we determine the best financing for the company. We support businesses via investments in equity, providing convertible loans or venture-debt. We help companies also with special situations, e.g.: debt-to-equity conversion or pre-IPO.
  • Unique
    geographical mandate

    We focus on Central Europe, but we are open for investment opportunities outside of the CEE Region. Our management team invested across Europe, Asia and the US. With that first-hand experience we will support our companies in global expansion.
