Pavel Cherkashin
Managing Partner

Pavel is the Managing Partner at GVA Capital and part-time Superman… his kryptonite: cold weather. In Moscow, he magically avoided snow and sub-zero temperatures for over 20 years by co-founding three $100M+ revenue IT and internet companies in Russia, and serving as a corporate executive at Adobe, Siebel (Oracle) and Microsoft.  But if that wasn’t enough, Pavel also funded over 20 startups as an Angel Investor. He eventually grew tired of constantly avoiding his kryptonite, and decided to go where it seemed to never snow – California. He moved to Silicon Valley over 3 years ago to soak up the warm California sun and at the same time continue saving the world by helping innovative technologies find the right markets and change the lives of millions of people.
