Allison Williams

Allison Williams is a former entrepreneur with CEO and COO experience with early-stage software technology companies. As founder and CEO at Yarly, a photo cloud-storage platform, Allison assembled a talented technical team, directed cross platform product development, established a nationwide distributed salesforce and achieved profitability. In mid-2015, Yarly was acquired by YesVideo, a top competitor which powers over 30,000 retail locations, and Allison was retained as an advisor. Since then, she has been COO of a multinational marketing technology software company serving clients such as L’Oreal and Heineken as well as Head of Strategy for a sports live streaming platform. Allison began her career as an investment banking analyst at Lehman Brothers.

Today, Allison leads NVP Labs, the Pre-Seed investment arm of Newark Venture Partners. Allison led development of the program’s unique offering which combines capital investment with in-house execution support focused on sales and marketing. Labs is quickly becoming one of the most competitive programs in the country with a less than 1% acceptance rate.

Allison graduated with her B.S. in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania (Wharton School) and received her M.B.A. from Columbia University. Allison proudly serves on the NJ board of the national nonprofit All Stars Project which promotes student career readiness with skills developed via the performing arts.
