Rob Meinhardt

Founder and CEO

“When an entrepreneur and a venture capitalist join forces, it’s a marriage that lasts forever. What stands out and differentiates NVP relative to many other firms is that NVP raises the bar when it comes to ethics and follow through. I think those are very important qualities in any relationship – especially a relationship with a financial partner.


When working with Bob Abbott in particular, I always felt confident that I was dealing with a partner whom I could trust. Moreover, I knew that NVP would always follow through on its commitments. No other firm I’ve ever dealt with has brought more strategic partners and bona fide customers to the table to help us grow our business.”

“NVP added significant value to KACE. Bob Abbott, in particular, was a committed and accessible board member - with a smart & modern approach. He believed in our vision from the day he invested in KACE and we relied on his honest feedback and strong support throughout the company's life cycle.”
