The definition of "venture" is "to dare to do something," and we take that seriously. While our main interest is providing promising entrepreneurial start ups with initial investments, AVC is also open to providing private debt equity to established companies. We want to honor companies for having the boldness to dare to do something new by collaborating in the process.

**VentureBeat named TeamFusion a finalist in the 2013 CloudBeat Innovation Showdown** TeamFusion is how business does BYOD. TeamFusion is a device agnostic mobile workspace that brings legacy data, cloud applications and custom development together all on one platform and accessible from any device. We built TeamFusion with browser-based HTML5 which means that it works in your browser, on any device (tablet, phone and desktop) and it looks and feels like a native app but without anything to install (no native apps or browser plugins). Users can finally use any device to get the things done that they previously could only get done on the PC. TeamFusion unleashes the power of the phones and tablets that users already have with them rather than continue forcing them to use a patchwork of PC apps, browser apps and native mobile apps. TeamFusion is Mobile, Responsive, Cutting Edge and Downright Sexy. Its how business does BYOD.
