"Our relationship with Norwest Venture Partners has been special. NVP stayed on our board longer than most venture capitalists. They are very committed to the companies they invest in. They have introduced us to a number of different companies, which has led to innovative product design and enhancement, as well as to interesting partnerships and business opportunities."
