    Description:

    Blade Ventures' focus is on companies that drive the adoption of leading edge information, media, sensor and related systems technologies. Through select partners, the firm will also invest in life science opportunities such as medical devices, diagnostics, and operations-enhancing information technology. Blade will consider opportunities from any region of the United States but prefers investments in companies that are geographically easy to reach (i.e., drive or nonstop flight from Orange County, CA). A typical initial investment for Blade Ventures is expected to fall within a range of $250,000 to $1.5 million. For later stage investments, where a portfolio company has already achieved financial stability, Blade will focus on opportunities that have potential to be industry leaders and offer sustained growth through an expected exit.
