Growing out of several venture-based organizations founded in the early to mid-nineties, Venvalo Group was formed to create, enhance, and extract optimal value from emerging and mid-market companies. The founder brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the new discipline of Venture Value Optimization.
Everything started in 1983 when young, newly arrived to the U.S., Dr. Reznik participated in his first IPO experience with high flying Teknekron (www.teknekroncorp.com). Teknekron provided Dr. Reznik not only with the liquidity transaction experience as well as opportunities to hone the art and science of building high growth, profitable science-intensive enterprises.
Over the years following, Dr. Reznik developed the Venture Value Optimization methodologies based upon, a combination of hands-on experience, expertise in building successful companies, and extracting an optimal value out of those successes.
Ultimately Dr. Reznik has made multiple Inc. 500 companies (the fastest growing companies in the U.S.) and achieved high returns in private and public markets.
Boris Reznik is the Chairman of Venvalo Group. During his career spanning four decades, Dr. Reznik founded and built technology companies into market leaders, managed high growth, profitable enterprises and successfully worked with both Fortune 500 and emerging companies as clients and partners. He has been an investor or co-investor in multiple technology-based companies and has participated in many public and private fundings and mergers and acquisitions of technology-based companies, ranging from millions to billions.
Boris came to US with $100 dollars, but also with “Burning Desire to Succeed”. The latter eventually drove him to join Teknekron in Berkley, CA in the early 80-ties. And he quickly built from scratch the fastest growing, “Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems” division there. After Teknekron completed an IPO and was sold to Litton Industries, Boris, left and launched a new company, American Trunkey. That became the first of his companies on Inc. 500 list of fastest growing US companies. But it was not the last.
Dr. Reznik has launched numerous companies. Unfortunately, or fortunately he had to experience the 2001-2002 technology bubble burst when several of his companies folded. That experience enhanced one of the most important element of Venture Value Optimization methodology, sense of timing.
