about us

Investment and consulting company Capinvest 21 was founded by venture investors in Russia in 2007.

The name “Capinvest 21” has an important meaning: we invest in companies that work with 21st century technology.

Our main goal is to help building new and developing already running innovation companies in order to expand market relations, build respectable homeland and foreign companies and maximize investors’ earnings. Before 2015 we were investing in real sector of economy, predominantly into oil and gas companies, thus we are confident in this sphere and what’s more important we have connections. Since 2015 our company is focused on innovation projects, which we help to increase capitalization and maximize profits.

We neither play stock nor exchange markets. We invest in businesses, which we fully understand and for which we can offer something more than just money, but our knowledge, connections and experience. We are interested in microfinance (starting with $25000) for promising startups. That’s why we founded Capinvest 21 Seed Venture Fund I. We use economic-mathematical models and instruments of financial forecasting to choose which project is good for investing. We also always trust our guts while choosing a project.

We choose promising projects, help them to run their companies and raise their capital. We come from Tyumen, but we work around the world. In addition our company’s priority is to fund startups from CIS, Europe and Asia. We not only provide you with finance, we also help you to successfully run your projects.

Capinvest 21 can be a profile investor for already existing companies, which long for further development and need funding.
