Over the past 22 years, 230+ NVC portfolio companies are still in operation and continue to grow. To date, these companies have raised over $915 million in funding and have generated over $13 billion in mergers and exits. It is a program that continues to receive national recognition, and we are looking forward to seeing which companies launch out of this year’s cohort.
