About us


The office of the NVP consists of 8 people who are jointly responsible for keeping the association running. They coordinate NVP Academy, organise events, provide statistics and analysis and represent the industry in The Hague and Brussels. They are also the voice of private equity and venture capital towards journalists, supervisory authorities, relevant stakeholders and the wider world. The NVP  offers a platform to network and to combine and promote interests.  The NVP is the linchpin between investors, politicians, journalists and service providers.  Like any association, the NVP is dependent on the efforts of its members. Many committees support the NVP. Tjarda Molenaar is Managing Director of the NVP.
