SAN FRANCISCO, September 7, 2023-- Piva Capital, a VC firm on a mission to back visionary founders and emerging technology companies transforming industry, has expanded its investment team by adding two Investors, Claire Yun and Jillian Noel.

"The addition of Claire and Jillian to our team is a significant step towards the growth of our firm, said Ricardo Angel, Managing Partner of Piva Capital. "Their knowledge, dedication, and innovative thinking are precisely what Piva values. We're excited to have them on board and look forward to their impactful contributions."
