Fenox Venture Capital is an American venture capital firm, headquartered in San Jose, California.


Fenox Venture Capital was founded by Vitaliy Arbuzov[1] and Anis Uzzaman[2] in 2009. Fenox VC works with emerging technology companies worldwide and has been serving as a bridge for global startups seeking entry into American, Asian,[3] European and Middle Eastern markets.


In December 2015, Fenox led a $16 million investment in Jibo.[4] This investment was seen as a push from Jibo to start expanding globally. In February 2016, the firm led an investment in agriculture IoT company Edyn.[5] The investment in Edyn was another event in Fenox establishing itself as a key investor and supporter of American technology startups aspiring to grow globally.

In May 2016, the firm led a $14 million investment in Affectiva.[6] Other portfolio companies include Tech in Asia,[7] BlockCypher,[8] MindMeld,[9] and Sensely.[10]


In February 2016, it was reported that Fenox was ordered by the US Department of Labor to pay back wages totaling over $330,000 to 56 unpaid interns it had hired.[11][12][13][14]

In June 2017, Uzzaman and Fenox sued an anonymous blogger saying he falsely accused him of sexual harassment.[15][16]


The firm is structured differently from most venture capital firms, the key difference coming from the source of its capital. Fenox raises its capital primarily from large corporations globally.[17][18][19][20] The firm focused on investing in technology startups and supporting their growth internationally by facilitating partnerships between its investors and portfolio.
