Earlier stage investments have played a fundamental part in CVC’s growth since inception in 1985, and were the original investment premise on which CVC was listed as an ASX company.

Our earlier stage investment portfolio has delivered returns in excess of 25% per annum over the past 5 years, and we have developed a strong network and pipeline of quality earlier stage companies with potential to deliver attractive returns.

CVC has launched Add+Venture to offer investors access to earlier stage investments alongside CVC.

The Add+Venture Approach

There are excellent opportunities for investing in innovation today. The digital transition of our society is taking place at a rate faster than any could have anticipated. At the same time, information pathways make global markets for these products and services instantly accessible. Add+Venture has been created to connect sophisticated investors with innovative Australian companies using technology to reinvent existing industries and discover new ones.

Despite abundant new technological applications, the reality is that the fundamental rules about investing still apply. We continue to apply many of the same investment principles when reviewing early stage opportunities as we do for more mature private equity and public listed opportunities. A game changing new product is not enough. To be selected, the opportunity must be both a good business and a good investment as well.
