Our Partners

Our 18 partners each bring 30+ years of professional experience and invaluable networks for the ventures we select. We began in Boston & Silicon Valley as Sage Partners, and expanded into Europe 10 years ago, as Sage Partners Europe.  

We work because we enjoy helping firms accelerate sustainable growth, and in doing so, derive deep satisfaction in our role as a business partner to our venture clients.
