Current Trend

Today’s VC backed technology companies are staying private longer, raising later and larger rounds of funding. The longer gestation period of these organizations, creates a need for diversification among the current and former employee base, entrepreneurs and early investors - thus opening the opportunity for outside institutional investors to acquire shares.

MVP Value Proposition

MVP offers exclusive access to direct investments with a structured process and transparent fee structure. We also provide proprietary fundamental bottom up company specific as well as broader macroeconomic top down research through our affiliate Manhattan Venture Research.
