We’re very focused on preservation of capital, and we like assets that are easy to understand and have good cash flow. We call it belt-and-suspenders investing.

Gino Cozza, Chief Operating Officer


VCM invests alongside successful entrepreneurs and management teams in small and mid-sized growing companies with proven products, technologies and business models.

We require that our investee company’s leadership retain meaningful stakes in their businesses to promote alignment of interest. We prefer established companies whose business models enjoy both high barriers to entry and paths to organic revenue growth. Vukota’s management team is also experienced in creating value in portfolio companies via consolidation opportunities, technology development, and operational improvements.
