Mid-Atlantic Diamond Ventures (MADV) is an independent organization that assists emerging, technology-based companies in their effort to build sustainable businesses by better positioning their firms for funding while increasing value at an early and crucial stage. MADV utilizes coaching sessions to prepare qualified companies for investments; helps ensure that investment materials are comprehensible, defensible and compelling; and, provides input around critical aspects of entrepreneurship and scaling. Entrepreneurs that have successfully completed these coaching sessions are invited to present their company at our quarterly venture forums, which are attended by accredited individual investors, angel groups, and venture capitalists. At these events, entrepreneurs engage one-on-one with potential investors. To date, 400 Mid-Atlantic companies have presented at MADV and have raised more than $640 million. MADV is located at the Temple University Fox School of Business, and is sponsored by prestigious professional service firms, major angel constituencies, and local economic development groups.
