About Us

We invest and advise early-stage technology companies, with a core focus in marketing tech.

What We Do

We believe that the faster to market and more efficient a company is, the less money is going to get spent.  As angels we actively step in to help a product get to market on time, train employees and figure out what (and who) should receive resources.

Our team is passionate about product and operational efficiency, and we use our network to help the start-ups we work with to advance to their next stage as quickly as possible.

Avanzar Ventures is an excellent value-adding investor that really helped drive RealTargeting forward. The three most important roles early stage investors can play are adviser, connector, and cheerleader, and Marcela and Kevin played all perfectly. They were immediately responsive when we needed them and were always thinking about how to grow the business most effectively. I can't wait to work with them again.
