|Venture Fund Member Profile
The OVP model is simple but distinct: invest in seed and first-round stage deals and develop those businesses from start to finish. Our hallmark is bringing a deep partnership to every deal we do. Not only is an OVP partner on the board of each company we back, but a second partner serves as “second chair” to give greater coverage and attention to each investment.
We originate and lead our investments and support them by establishing terms and conditions, recruiting management, making introductions to other VCs and developing strategic alliances that foster the growth of a founder’s business plan. OVP partners take the raw clay and build the statue—we help, advise, support, question and guide innovative entrepreneurs.
Our investments are concentrated in cleantech, digital biology and information technology. Our track record of 52 liquidity events – including 22 IPOs – leads the region.
