    Advance Venture Partners (AVP) provides equity capital and strategic support to innovative emerging growth businesses. The firm was founded in partnership with Advance Publications, a privately-owned media and technology holding company with a portfolio that includes Conde Nast, Charter Communications, Discovery Communications, and Reddit. AVP draws upon the domain expertise and intellectual capital that Advance Publications has developed as an owner and operator of businesses in these sectors for over 100 years. AVP focuses on three core sectors where the firm has meaningful domain expertise and investment experience: commerce, software and technology-enabled services, and media. AVP invests $10 million to $30 million in each of its investments, and is a hands-on partner to entrepreneurs in growing businesses and building value.
