in 1982, Partech International is a leading global venture capital
firm with offices in the U.S., Europe and Israel. With $650M under
active management, our investment team focuses exclusively on Information
Technology. Specific areas where we invest include Software,
Healthcare IT, and Communications
& Components. In each of these sectors, our team diligently
sources companies with high return potential and disruptive technologies.
It is our belief that "technology is global" and therefore,
venture capital must be global. This global way of thinking and investing
is not a new strategy for us. We have successfully executed this approach
for over twenty years and like to think of ourselves as pioneers of
international venture capital. Some of our globally successful companies
include: Ascend Communications, Alvarion, Business Objects, Cadence,
CSG Systems, Digital Island, Informatica, Pentasafe and Vignette.
Partech's successful "International
Venture Model" has been instrumental in building innovative
start-ups into global leaders.
