Aviv "Vivi" Nevo (born 1965[1]) is an Israeli and American venture capitalist who is a major shareholder in Time Warner.[2][3] His venture capital firm, NV Investments, is believed to invest in technology companies worldwide, and is said to have been an early backer of The Weinstein Company,[4] and the largest individual shareholder in Time Warner.[1]

Nevo is averse to publicity, and hires a public relations firm to maintain a low public profile.[4] In July, 2008 Nevo confirmed long-running rumors of an engagement to Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi.[5] They separated in 2010.

Nevo was born in Bucharest, Romania and then moved to Tel Aviv, Israel as an infant, with his father, a chemical engineer, and his mother, an anesthesiologist. He is an only child. It is believed that he built his fortune up from his initial $10 million inheritance.[1] Nevo is Jewish.[6]
