Public Venture Clubs

AVG-sponsored venture investment clubs

NOW OPEN: AVG Jupiter Venture Club

Venture Clubs provide a private, online platform where you and the group of your choice can review individual investment opportunities from AVG, as well as learn and network. Participation in any investment opportunity is entirely up to the individual, and every member owns his or her own portfolio. As a benefit for club members, the per deal minimum is typically $10K vs. $25K for nonmembers.
