NVCA membership is open to venture capital partnerships and corporations actively engaged in investing risk equity capital in the U.S. NVCA’s annual membership provides access to premier networks, research, education and professional development, services and public policy advocacy opportunities that leverage your firm’s competitive advantage.

Your firm must be actively engaged in private equity investing on a cash for equity basis, must be investing from a dedicated pool of private equity capital of at least $1 million or, in the case of a corporate investor, investing off of the balance sheet. The applicant must employ a professional staff of at least one full-time employee, or full time equivalent, whose sole purpose is direct private equity investing or through VC fund-of-funds.

Please submit your application with two references from current NVCA members. Please review the list of current NVCA members. Renewal of Annual Membership in the NVCA is subject to review and approval by the NVCA along with continued compliance of the criteria stated above.

NVCA Membership Dues

Annual NVCA Membership Dues are based on your firm’s capital under management. Capital Under Management is defined as all funds raised less any fully liquidated funds. Corporate venture groups investing off the balance sheet pay an annual flat fee. Please review the NVCA Dues Structure.
