Strategy

Battery’s private equity practice leverages over three decades of experience identifying and building technology companies across all stages of development. We work with management teams to accelerate growth, access new markets and transform businesses in the IT and industrial-technology sectors. We embrace complex situations and provide highly flexible capital to meet the needs of a diverse range of deal types, including buyouts of family or founder-owned companies; public to privates; and divisional carve-outs of business units.

Because we are technology experts, not just financial investors, we look beyond basic profit metrics to understand the true potential of a business. We invest in companies with revenue between $5 million and $200 million and build promising businesses into global technology leaders. As a firm, we have raised over $6.9 billion since inception and are now investing our latest funds with a combined capitalization of $1.25 billion.

Team

Our investment staff works together as a single, global unit to evaluate and support potential investments. Every portfolio company — before, during and after we invest — works with a dedicated team of experts to help it grow.
