A-venture and Jean Marc Lopez are an active investor. After we invest, we can help in a number of ways.
All young companies face recruiting challenges. We can play an active role in identifying critical hires and recruiting to fill those needs. We work closely with leading search firms, and draw on our broad network to help surface the right talent.
We make introductions at high levels with prospective business partners, as well as help with referrals to professional service providers. Whether legal, financial or operational, we have the connections you need.
We provide assistance in tuning the business plan and sales strategy, developing the product or service, and refining other aspects of the new business.
Typically, we are represented on the Board of Directors to provide active support to the management team. We assist our portfolio companies with strategic and policy decisions, as well as provide an outside perspective on factors that may influence the growth of the company.
Our investments range in size from as little as $100,000 to as much as $10 or $15 million. Typically, we invest $3 to $5 million initially and expect to invest $5 to $15 million over the life of a company.
