Update

Avalon’s long-standing and successful focus has been on seed and early stage companies, including many it formed in the life science and information technology sectors. We believe this is the most challenging and rewarding period of company creation – we are former entrepreneurs driven by passionate people pursuing disruptive ideas in ever changing market environments.
