This is an unofficial AVentures website. It was created by the Petcube team with participation from other Aventures portfolio companies as a birthday gift to AVentures. Most VCs create their websites themselves. We decided it will be much better if we, the founders, share how it feels to work with AVentures.
Why did we do this? We’ve been working with Yevgen and Andrey for quite some time, and through their incredible support, we’ve achieved continued growth and success. They are incredibly talented, resourceful, and hardworking in the VC community. This website is our tribute, reflecting our gratitude towards AVentures and to serve as an inspiration for aspiring entrepreneurs. Great investors should get credit for being great!
