What Is a Roll-Up Vehicle (RUV)?

A roll-up vehicle (RUV) is a type of special purpose vehicle (SPV) for founders and angel investors. Rather than having to collect and record each investment individually, the angels invest in the RUV, which then invests in your company.

First popularized by AngelList, the benefit of an RUV is that you can raise money from multiple (smaller) angels without cluttering your cap table with lots of entries. Your angels invest in the RUV, which in turn invests in your company, so it’s one entity as far as the company is concerned.
