Who we are
Digital Ventures' origins date back to the late 1990s, when our founder, Yannick Pons, identified an online opportunity in the New York flat-sharing market and launched Roomgo. The significant international growth that followed led to the launch of a second international brand, Vivastreet, as the free classified marketplace sector began to grow online.
Digital Ventures continues to invest in new online market place opportunities. One of our most recent investments was a legal services platform that connects users and lawyers in France, called Mon Avocat. Having bought the business outright in 2018, our intention is to make this the third major brand within the group.
Still a privately owned company after 20 years, the Digital Ventures group is headquartered in London, with operations in 26 countries and over 150 employees worldwide. Despite the size of the group, the start-up spirit remains deeply rooted in our company DNA, and we constantly seek - and invest in – new opportunities in the online marketplace sector.
