We back the bold.

And the exceptional entrepreneurs who know their company has the potential to change the future. That’s what we back.

Introduction to AVC

AVC was formed in July 2022 as an independent 501(c)(3) with a mission to catalyze earlystage investment for startups in Arizona. We will partner with leading institutional investors to co-invest directly into eligible startups, and to invest capital into existing venture capital funds as a Limited Partner. AVC will invest in startups based in Arizona, or that commit to establishing a presence in conjunction with an investment, and we will prioritize underserved founders and communities.
