We've been investing in growth stage companies since 1972 – directly partnering with over 220 entrepreneurs, and managing more than $1.5 billion during that time.
Entrepreneurs want to work with investors who 'get it', and have a deep understanding of their business. To do this, we maintain a deep focus on two industries – technology and healthcare.
We partner with exceptional teams building market-leading companies, and have the flexibility to invest at various stages of a company’s life-cycle.
As investors and board members, we strive to add value, to be a trusted sounding board for management, and to be a rational partner for existing investors – all in a low-ego way.
With six offices around the world, we can bring to bear our global platform and network of relationships for our portfolio companies.
We recognize the importance of long-term financial support for our companies. We typically invest between $5 million and $25 million, potentially more, dependent on the situation.
The Venture/Growth Team leverages more than 90 years of collective experience combined with valuable access to relationships and market intelligence to help entrepreneurs create value.
We invest in rapidly growing, category-leading companies across multiple stages, targeting software, mobile, big data, financial technology, security and health care. To see more examples of the types of companies we currently invest in, follow the link below:See More Portfolio Companies
