About MVM Associates

Competitive Advantages


MVM has been in business since 1997. We have assisted hundreds of firms in obtaining and managing government-funded programs. We have worked with hundreds of companies processing over $500 Million dollars in tax credit applications. Our clients range from small and medium-sized tech companies and manufacturers like: Houwzer; LSEO; Crossbeam; Positively Tea; Ecotech Marine; Frontage Laboratories and Carpenter Technologies as well as some of the largest companies in the world such as Netflix, Amazon, Nestle, Ford, and more.

Straight Answers

When dealing with government funds, the most important thing is that our clients understand all of the rules, assurances, and outcomes. Before getting started, we will explain to our clients all of the terms and conditions of the programs so they can make the right decision as to whether or not to participate. This is regardless of how it impacts MVM’s business.


Some of the government-funded programs require that a company provide certain confidential information in order to be approved. MVM has developed a multi-step security protocol that ensures the protection of data.


Our clients can engage us in the capacity that best fits their needs. For example, they can hire MVM for the entire application and management process or just hire MVM just to sell your tax credits.
