Software Focus

  • Cloud Computing

    Just like any revolution, Cloud Computing is overturning so much that it’s leaving many people confused and pondering its implications and opportunities alike. Like Open Source, we expect that Cloud Computing will be at the core of many ‘game changing’ industry events in the near future.

    "Clouds’ are not born; they’re built over many years guided by an unwavering belief in an alternative future for enterprise software. Since 2004, North Bridge has shared a vision with Demandware for commerce in the cloud and has stood by us to make that vision reality." - Jamus Driscoll, Sr. Vice President, Marketing, Demandware

  • Open Source

    North Bridge supports Open Source Software development by seeking out and investing in the best and brightest people who are helping bridge the gap between the OSS movement and those attempting to learn from and work with it.

    "We are seeing explosive growth at Acquia globally as the convergence of content, community and commerce on the web and in mobile fuels enterprise demand. North Bridge recognized the pace of innovation and economic advantages that open source Drupal has in this convergence and has been a big supporter of Acquia’s since the beginning." - Tom Erickson, CEO, Acquia, Inc.
