Investment Criteria

  • Strong Management

  • Proprietary Position

    AV seeks companies whose products provide innovative advantages. Such products must be based on proprietary technology and design and will fill significant market needs.

  • Favorable Market

    The products or services must address a market characterized by favorable relationships among the variables of size, growth potential, and competitive factors. The marketing strategy needs to be clearly defined and consistent with a large or rapidly developing market.

  • Appropriate Capitalization

    The size of the investment round must allow the company to implement its strategic plan. Too often, undercapitalization created extraordinary risk.
