Battery Ventures is a global, technology-focused investment firm pursuing the most prominent companies and ideas. Founded in 1983, our firm makes venture-capital and private equity investments from six offices around the world. We work hard, but humbly, and are guided by data-driven processes. We seek out extraordinary business leaders who operate the same way.

Our Businesses

Venture + Growth

Battery’s global venture-capital practice spans technology sectors and investment stages ranging from seed to growth. Our team ferrets out companies with potentially cutting-edge, category-defining businesses in markets including application software, IT infrastructure and consumer Internet/mobile. Learn more about our venture portfolio here and on our blog, which features stories about our companies, our portfolio executives and the broader markets in which they operate.

Private Equity

Our private equity practice focuses on helping technology companies in the U.S., Europe and Israel grow organically and through acquisitions. We work primarily with businesses in the information-technology and industrial-technology sectors and partner with teams to accelerate growth, tap new markets, re-orient existing businesses and build platforms through acquisitions. Because we are technology experts, and not just financial investors, we look beyond basic profit metrics to understand the true potential of a business. Learn more about our private-equity business here.
