Meet some of our Strategic Partners
PVP enjoys valuable strategic relationships with a diversified consortium of industry leading corporations. Our Strategic Partners, several of which have also elected to be Strategic Limited Partners in one or more of our Funds, have a combined market capitalization exceeding $380 Billion and represent complimentary industry verticals, value chain positions, and geographic concentrations. These partnerships help define key industry needs and market opportunities. Our portfolio companies enjoy access to this deep set of potential customer and supply chain partner relationships. And, we make business development introductions between our partners and promising start-ups, even if the start-up is not an investment fit for our funds.
