Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Adelaide, South Australia, RSVP brings more than 30 years of entrepreneurial management success and 10 years of dedicated, venture capital experience to bear on behalf of our portfolio companies. RSVP currently oversees an investment portfolio of over a dozen companies in the United States and Australia.
We’ve Walked in Your Shoes
We’re successful entrepreneurs, CEOs and tech junkies that approach every investment as a team. We’ve been there before and know what it takes to evolve from startup to market success. Any investor can just throw money at your business, but what most startups need is a capital partner that commits as much sweat equity as they do dollars to your success.
Led by our two founders, Paul Vlasic and Raymond Spencer, RSPV’s primary focus has leaned toward technology-based accelerators, green energy, and the health and sustainable living verticals. However, we are always drawn to any market disrupter regardless of industry because that’s where the real opportunities blossom. As experienced entrepreneurs ourselves, we know what it takes to drive innovation. We’re not interested in simply “running the numbers” or “doing deals.” Instead, we work tirelessly to support passionate entrepreneurs and guide their ideas into market-leading companies.
We don’t just manage, we mentor.
