We are a business acceleration firm partnering primarily with Cypriot ventures that demonstrate differentiated competitive value propositions that can scale in the USA market. We leverage our years of multidiscipline USA business expertise and networks to add strategic and tactical value to our portfolio companies.
We want to maintain a leadership role in creating growth opportunities for Cypriot companies that previously were unable to benefit from access to the U.S.A markets.

The KV Kinisis Ventures Fund RAIF V.C.I.C. Plc, is the first CySEC-registered Venture Capital fund focusing primarily on Cypriot start-ups
The Fund’s strategy and focus is to leverage the investment advisory team’s USA experience to help capitalize disruptive Cypriot innovation that can differentiate, compete and scale primarily in the USA and other key international markets.
Kinisis Ventures Ltd [KV] entered the Cypriot innovation ecosystem as a business acceleration and private investment firm in 2018.
KV brought a unique perspective and strategic value to their portfolio companies by leveraging their many years of multidiscipline USA business expertise and networks. They used their experience to pick and partner with early-stage Cypriot startups with differentiated value propositions that can scale in the USA market.
Since the launch of the Kinisis Ventures Fund , all the KV portfolio companies were transferred to the Fund and Kinisis Ventures Ltd assumed the role of the Fund’s Investment Advisory Committee and business commercialization experts. Yet, another unique approach to the early-stage Venture Capital sector in Cyprus.
Identify industry "disruptive" companies that can compete in the USA and other big markets. We like to invest early, get in early, and help our portfolio companies commercialize, generate revenue, and scale in big economies
Engage very early with promising entrepreneurs to help bring them to their first, pre-seed money stage
Position the Fund favourably for their first financing round
Provide acceleration capital and resources to pre-commercialization / seed-stage companies
Our "sweet spot" and principal area of investment
Provide access to industry & lead investment rounds in companies entering their commercialization stage
Be in a position to back our "winners" and mobilize co-investors
The fund is sector agnostic but focuses on sectors in which our expert team of USA based advisors can guide the portfolio companies to faster commercialization and international growth opportunities. The fund's portfolio common thread is disruptive or category redefining technology and USA market scalability & relevancy.
