Technology Partners
Founded over 20 years ago as a private venture capital firm, Technology Partners manages a total of more than $400 million of investment capital. Investments are being made currently from Technology Partners VII, L.P., a $250 million fund.

Technology Partners teams with visionary entrepreneurs to build successful new companies. We serve principally as a lead investor and business advisor to both Life Science and Cleantech companies. Over time, we have cultivated distinct "centers of excellence" in which we have deep industry knowledge, domain, experience, and technical expertise. By concentrating our investments within these "centers of excellence," we are better able to select potential investments, as well as provide valuable advice to assist our portfolio companies. Our current areas of focus are: Life Sciences: Neuroscience, Therapeutic Products, Cleantech: Energy Technology, Water Technology, Materials Science. While we generally invest in earlier-stage ventures, we will consider later-stage rounds, if the opportunities are compelling and in areas of strategic interest. Our typical initial investment ranges from $1-8M and our total investment per company is up to $25M.
