The Aventure Attitude

At Aventure, we're a little different from the average investment organisation.

Return on investment is important to us- but it’s not the only reason we take on projects. More important is that we get involved in projects that interest us, that we identify with, and that challenge us.

We believe that business should be fun, and that if you are investing most of your waking hours in a business, that it must interest and captivate you. That’s why we love working with business owners who have a real commitment to their business, and love what they do.

Aventure partners with small and medium businesses who have the potential for growth, where we can offer funding, plus business development experience and guidance.

We have a special interest in green and sustainable business plus extensive experience in the food industry, import and distribution, and event management and property.

Every business is different and requires a different solution. Our wide experience has given us the ability to think laterally and come up with innovative solutions which meet practical business needs.

Aventure’s involvement in any project is ultimately dependent on an assessment that

  1. The project is interesting to us. If we don’t feel a connection, we won’t get involved.
  2. We can add something positive. If we don’t believe we can make a positive contribution  then we won’t get involved.
  3. The project has a future. If we don’t believe the business is viable, then we will say so.
  4. Current management has the talent and commitment to take the business forward.
