The Team Behind the Story


BVA was founded in 1992 based on the concept of combining advisory, C-level consulting and investment capabilities.

Like the best Venture Funds, BVA uses industry advisors to expand our reach, providing domain and subject matter expertise.


Our goal is to become a partner over the long haul in the ongoing growth and success of our clients. 


Value Proposition
Proven Model

Through 2020 has BVA successfully:

  • Completed more than 200 engagements

  • Invested in over 60 companies

  • Participated in more than 20 liquidity events

  • Managed a successful incubator (BVA Incubator).​

BVA manages the complexity inherent in difficult engagements by tapping into our teams' corporate general management experience, diverse background, vast networks of contacts, and advisers’ expertise.


To some, these engagements are too complex. Not to us. This is our wheelhouse.
