    Novak Biddle Venture Partners was established in 1997 to provide equity financing and assistance to the management of young, information technology companies located in the Mid-Atlantic region. NBVP has over $580 million under management. The firm prefers to be the first institutional capital brought into a business with a desired investment range of $100,000 to $10,000,000. While Novak focuses on information technology companies in the very early stage through first round, the firm will consider financing later stage opportunities and spinouts where it can add significant value.
