Amorim Cork Ventures

We encourage innovation and entrepreneurship in the cork sector

Amorim Cork Ventures (ACV) was founded in 2014 to support entrepreneurs who are developing innovative products, solutions and applications for the cork sector. ACV's main goal is to promote the launch, growth and expansion of cork-related business ventures, aimed in particular at foreign markets. This requires the development of new approaches, paths and formulae for cork, both in its natural state and when combined with other materials.

"The creation of Amorim Cork Ventures is a natural step in the evolution of Corticeira Amorim, which, as a world leader in the sector, has a privileged position to support entrepreneurs who aim to work alongside the company and further its mission to add greater value to cork."
António Rios de Amorim
