Investor Spotlight: Newark Venture Partners
IT’S OFFICIAL: WE ARE A MEMBER OF THE NEWARK VENTURE PARTNERS SPRING 2019 NVP LABS PROGRAM!
The 12 week program includes investment, office space within NVP’s coworking offices, as well as guidance from an in-house growth team and mentorship network. With guidance from the NVP team, we are improving strategic plans, and honing our marketing and sales operations. We just started the program, but we are already seeing results on the investment front and customer growth.
Selection for the program was very competitive, “This cohort was selected from our biggest pool of applicants yet, and it’s raising the bar for startups in Newark. Having our corporate partners engaged with us from the selection process, through mentoring, and often pilots, gives our companies market validation that is really valuable as they get to scale,” said Dan Borok, Managing Partner at Newark Venture Partners.
The corporate partners for the program include: Audible (an Amazon Company), Dun & Bradstreet, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield, Panasonic Corporation of North America, Prudential Financial, RWJBarnabas, TD Bank through the TD Charitable Foundation, Fidelco Realty Group, and the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.
NVP has a legacy of success, of which we are honored to contribute to. It was founded by Don Katz, Audible founder and CEO, with the mission to grow Newark as a hub for east coast technology and recast the city as a pioneering innovation zone and ultra-bandwidth tech center. The resources shared with us have already proven to be invaluable, and with Newark being a trade and logistics hub, it is an ideal environment for growth.
