Since 1983, the Battery team has prided itself on avoiding the herd and on operating a little differently than other investors.

We have been fortunate to back some very big thinkers who have also carved their own paths, and we continue to seek out new visionaries every day.

Our firm was founded on a set of principles that remain the pillars of our investment philosophy: a concentration on technology and related sectors; a research-centric methodology for identifying and understanding large, emerging market opportunities; a proactive approach to finding driven entrepreneurs and compelling businesses; and daily involvement with every portfolio company.

This approach has helped us to build lasting, market-leading companies while delivering leading returns for investors. We have been fortunate to work with individuals who have set out to push technology boundaries at companies such as: Akamai Technologies, Allegiance Telecom, FORE Systems, HNC Software, Infoseek, LIFFE, MetroPCS, Neoteris, Nextel, Pixelworks, Qtera, SigmaTel, Vastera, and Witness Systems.

Battery has raised $4B since inception, and we are currently investing BV IX, a $750M fund.
