Alumni Ventures and “Angel” Chris Adamo Partner on Seed-Stage Investing
Adamo is one of AV’s first partners in the VC firm’s new Super-Angel Partner Program
MANCHESTER, NH, Oct. 26, 2022 — Venture capital firm Alumni Ventures (AV) is pleased to announce its collaboration with renowned angel-investor Chris Adamo through its Super-Angel Partner Program. This new initiative partners AV with leading seed investors who specialize in specific geographies to complement AV’s own seed investing activity.
Recently ranked the fifth most active VC globally (PitchBook, Q2 2022), AV recognizes that seed-stage innovation is happening faster and in more geographies. Using its decentralized, network-powered approach to venture investing, AV partners with elite angel investors to access sought-after entrepreneurs at the earliest stages of company formation anywhere in the world.
Anton Simunovic, Chief Investment Officer at AV, announced the Adamo partnership, saying, “Having made more than 40 investments in companies like On Chain Studios, Zed Run, and Binske, Chris has a seed-stage track record that’s first class. We also think that his community-building expertise in the Southeast is a natural fit for AV’s founder-friendly, value-added VC platform.”
For his part, Adamo says, “I’m excited to collaborate with the Alumni Ventures team as they deepen their relationships in the growing South Florida tech ecosystem. It’s a testament to the last decade of growth in regional talent and innovative ideas, which looks set to continue.”
Adamo is one of a select group of investors AV is partnering with based on their seed track record, sector expertise, and community connections.
