Liav Fund is an early-stage investment fund. At Liav, early stage investing means putting capital and experience to work in a start up venture, long before it is fully formed. As such, we participate in the value creation that comes with developing a new business.
We invest in entrepreneurs who have the ability to develop unique technology backed by a realistic business model. Our investment fund is based around a small group of very experienced investment professionals working collaboratively to build a portfolio of promising companies. We then put our experience and our networks to work to help those companies build valuable businesses.
Over the past 20 years, we have been involved in the development and management of companies in the areas of cyber security, media, enterprise software, mobile and telecommunications and Internet companies. We have, in our prior experience, participated in the acquisition of over $300m in capital. That experience has convinced us that we can deliver high returns to our investors through a structured fund where we source investments, carry out due diligence and support our portfolio companies.
