    Momentum Venture Management helps early-stage companies achieve early business results and develop credibility in order to attract funding and transform their ideas, technologies and products into sustainable, successful businesses. In October 2006, the firm launched the Momentum Bridge & Opportunity Fund, which provides infusions of capital to early-stage companies with whom Momentum is actively engaged. The fund was created solely to meet the specific needs of Momentum's portfolio companies, helping the portfolio firms accelerate their businesses by adding necessary resources, including hiring senior management and making immediate infrastructure improvements. Momentum Venture Management transitioned into a harvest mode in November 2010 and will no longer be engaging with new portfolio companies. They remain involved in Momentum's current and past portfolio companies.
