Split Rock Partners
Split Rock Partners invests in emerging healthcare, software and Internet services companies in the Upper Midwest and West Coast. We are an early-stage venture capital firm that was founded in June 2004 by the former healthcare and software investment teams of St. Paul Venture Capital (SPVC). The Split Rock team managed over $1 billion of venture capital during our tenure at SPVC, and continues to manage the SPVC healthcare and software portfolio. In May of 2008, we raised $300 million in our second Split Rock Partners fund, the successor to our inaugural $275 million fund raised in April 2005.
The Split Rock team believes that it takes great people to translate promising ideas into compelling businesses. We are grounded in a fundamental respect for entrepreneurs and the rare combination of elements required when pioneering new markets. We start by looking for entrepreneurs with the passion, vision, and skills to build leading companies. We then work with entrepreneurs collaboratively, building partnerships based on integrity and mutual respect. The Split Rock team complements management expertise with over 80 years of venture investing and entrepreneurial management experience. We are proud of the strong relationships we have built with talented entrepreneurs and co-investors throughout our history and look forward to building on that tradition.
