Blockchain Valley Ventures (BVV) is a thematic venture capital investor in the blockchain and disruptive technologies space. They support innovative businesses that are unlocking value by solving the challenge of operational and financial inefficiencies.
Launched in 2018, it is one of the first Venture Capital funds of this type in Switzerland and part of a small group of others operating across Europe. BVV is also one of only two European members of the Draper Venture network, a unique venture capital network that was established by renowned investor Tim Draper.
BVV’s focus is on early stage ventures where the team has been formed and market validation has been proven. Half of start-ups fail at this stage because they can’t source the capital to grow their business, so enabling firms to raise funding at the right time is critical.
As a result of the pace at which these innovative technologies are evolving, an organisation’s market proposition often has to adapt and pivot more frequently than a ‘traditional’ business. This means that distributing investment opportunities quickly and efficiently to well-matched potential investors is vital for BVV.
In addition to creating a slick distribution model, BVV also needs to ensure that their regulatory processes are robust and well documented, particularly when dealing with investors based outside of mainland Europe. All of these objectives must be managed through an intuitive, tech-led solution that is in keeping with the innovative sector that BVV operates in.
BVV uses Delio’s white-labelled technology to promote and distribute information about investment opportunities in start-ups deploying innovative technologies. This gives them the ability to quickly and efficiently introduce investors to the latest early-stage ventures based on their preferences, regulatory profile and other information.
All investment-related data and documentation is managed through digitised processes that are configured to BVV’s specific requirements. This means that they have greater confidence in their regulatory controls, all investment-related information is stored in one central data room, and cross-team communication can be coordinated far more effectively.
Using Delio’s technology to manage all aspects of BVV’s investment process is already saving their team significant amounts of administrative and operational time. This can then be reinvested into speaking with their investors, engaging with portfolio businesses, and working in a smarter and more productive way.
Delio has also been able to add value to BVV beyond its core technology. Through their use of Delio’s regulatory support services, BVV is now able to access an investor base in the UK that they would have otherwise been unable to engage with. The widening of their investor pool now offers them the opportunity to raise capital from a more diverse array of sources and accelerate their fundraising activity.
Some people don’t necessarily equate technology with achieving personal connections, but the fact that we can use Delio’s technology to manage all aspects of our investment process saves us significant amounts of time. This can then be reinvested into speaking with investors, engaging with our portfolio businesses, and working smarter.
