The Maine Venture Fund has been a great partner for our startup tech company. Yes, they provide capital, but they also provide consistent, thorough advice to the board and executive team members in many areas of practice.

Robert Neveu, CEO, Certify, Inc.

When evaluating the various venture capital partners on our most recent round, it was important for me to include MVF because of their strong commitment to support the development of businesses in the State of Maine.
