(NVC) is a small business investment company organized in 1980 as EAB Venture Corp., and operated until early 1988 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of European American Bank (New York).

Norwood Venture provides risk capital to both private and public companies for growth, acquisition, buyouts, and special situations such as recapitalization, bridge financing, and turnarounds.
