Neil Kleinberg

Founder and Chief Executive Officer, DiliVer

DiliVer is a software company in the mergers and acquisitions (M&A) community whose specialized due diligence solutions yield better enterprise valuations and post-transaction outcomes, which, in turn help fuel economic growth.  Our industry-specific (“verticalized”), data-driven (“scorecard-powered”) applications drive a new due diligence paradigm that improves the quality and reduces the risk of M&A transactions for buyers, sellers, and their intermediaries forming new combined entities.  As founder and CEO, as well as the inventor of its intellectual property, Mr. Kleinberg is responsible for leading DiliVer’s corporate organization and overseeing its strategy and transformation functions.  In 25 years of experience as an entrepreneur, executive, management consultant, and lead engineer in the information technology industry, his expertise spans the commercial and government sectors, as well as (in addition to IT) the financial services, national security, healthcare, judicial, public safety, and telecommunications industries.  In his previous role, Mr. Kleinberg led corporate development buy-side and sell-side M&A activities at enterprise software market leader ASI, and participated in over 20 initiated transactions, including a private equity raise.  Prior to ASI, as President of VerticalFalls Software, which developed CRM solutions for financial advisors working in brokerage firms, Mr. Kleinberg orchestrated a successful exit as they were acquired by Sage in 2007.  Prior to VerticalFalls, he was a founder in two other prosperous high-growth technology companies—EIC, a management consulting firm, and NTC, a specialized RF electronics firm.  Mr. Kleinberg is also currently an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins Carey Business School, teaching Strategic Management and Entrepreneurial Finance courses, and is a Technology Commercialization Advisory Board member at Johns Hopkins University, where he received his MS in Computer Science and BS in Bioengineering.  Recently, Mr. Kleinberg became the Baltimore, Maryland Chapter Director of the Founder Institute, a global program for mentoring technology entrepreneurs and matching them with investors.
