My goal in starting North Bridge was to build a firm made up of highly motivated partners, who have that hard to find mix of entrepreneurial experience and investment savvy.
Our partners are dedicated to helping founders turn their vision, creativity and drive into big business through team building, development of strategy and operational excellence. My advice to any entrepreneur thinking about outside capital “whether it's $100,000 or $10 million" is to focus on the backgrounds and accomplishments of your partners; the professionals providing capital. I am very proud of our team and I hope that site visitors will read their bios carefully and take the initiative to call, email or text the North Bridge partner specializing in the five industry segments we cover: Communications & Infrastructure, Software, Materials, Healthcare Technology and Digital Media.
