Why Novirian Capital?

Unique, Active Portfolio Management

The assets acquired by Novirian Capital are actively managed to support value generation and global growth of the portfolio companies. Novirian Capital offers investors an attractive and unique return profile. We look at any portfolio with no prejudice or legacy beliefs. We aim to generate short- to medium-term distributions, focusing on solid companies with an expected short holding period and limited liquidity risk, while pursuing excess returns through premium realizations in select projects.

Our team, relationships and capital resources allow us to be a value-added and stable investor for our portfolio companies. In some cases we have led new financing rounds. Our team has significant experience at leading private equity firms, venture capital firms, investment banks and operating companies. The combination of our team’s experience, with our knowledge and expertise across multiple high-growth industries, such as hardware, software, internet-based services, both consumer and business services, allow us to be an ideal partner to our portfolio companies and their investors.

Experienced Team With Proven Track Record
