Buena Venture Associates, L.P. ("BVA"), is
an early stage venture capital investor focused on the insurance
industry. We are interested in investing in or acquiring books of
business, entire insurance agencies, brokers, or wholesalers. We are
especially interested in those agencies that are in need of operational
and technology assistance but cannot afford to make the investment
required from internal cash flow. Our investment strategy also seeks to
leverage the assets current assets under management that includes the
diverse companies and technologies available from InsureZone.
Our strategy is covered in more detail on the "Investment Philosophy"
page. The firm was formed in June of 1998, but its principals have been venture investors and
principal equity investors for many years. We would like to be the lead investor or
participate in strategy that allows the current owners a means to
transition out of the business in a structured and graceful manner. We look for outstanding people with
the experience, passion and desire to build great companies. We look for
people with ideas that will create
new distribution paradigms for the insurance industry. Our role with a company goes well beyond an
investment. The ideal situation is one where we are partners in building the best company
possible. Investments funded to date are described on the "Our Companies"
