What we believe
Transforming a concept into a company - and a company into a game-changer - requires more than capital. It takes energy, commitment, agility, focus, insight and experience.
Software is a key investment theme for North Bridge. In line with our affinity for disruptive technologies, we have focused on Open Source, Cloud Computing and Mobile with special emphasis on applications such as ecommerce and big data/analytics – technologies that are driving changes in the way leading enterprises do business.

We are leading healthcare technology investors with deep domain expertise, an unparalleled network, and a history of investment success in helping build big companies since the founding of our firm. In these times of healthcare uncertainty, we see tremendous opportunity in new care models with patients and consumers at the core. New payment models will dramatically reduce healthcare delivery costs and increase revenues with personalized medicine as a driver, health and wellness as a foundation, and informatics and big data analytics as an enabler.View Portfolio
Manufactured products are enabled or limited by the materials from which they are made, with performance and cost being key drivers. At North Bridge we identify superior innovations in materials, coming from the scientific or engineering communities, and build strong companies around the very best people on the topic. In all cases, there is a significant amount of invention from world-class scientists and professors, creating a proprietary technology platform that is leveraged in multiple ways within or across industries. We find this to be the recipe for success in building great materials companies with large financial outcomes.View Portfolio
