Our Approach

The North Bridge partnership has exceptional depth in industry knowledge and industry contacts. North Bridge is a firm that has the resources of a large fund, but the energy and agility of a much smaller one."

Mike Torto, CEO, rPath

Game changers disrupt existing markets. They also create new multi-billion dollar markets and have the potential to change the way we live and work.

North Bridge invests in people. We collaborate with bright, talented entrepreneurs to develop companies that innovate and disrupt the status quo. Our definition of active, early-stage investing is simple: more than capital is required to achieve success.

We are often a company's first investor, committing anywhere from $100,000 to $1 million in a seed financing or $2 million to $10 million in a first round. North Bridge typically provides capital throughout a company's financing life cycle, participating in every round.

We focus on emerging markets in Communications, Infrastructure, Software, Materials, Healthcare Technology and Digital Media. Our partners have significant operational experience in these industries. Combined with the larger North Bridge network of over 170 companies and their thousands of employees, we can help founders recruit hard-to-find talent, board members, make customer introductions and introduce potential strategic partners. Our value added approach to investing is why many of our company founders have worked with North Bridge on multiple projects.
