Anzu Partners is an investment firm that focuses on industrial and life science technology companies with the potential to transform their industries. We team with entrepreneurs to develop and commercialize technological innovations by providing capital and deep expertise in business development, market positioning, global connectivity, and operations.

Anzu manages approximately $1 billion in capital commitments, and we have developed a robust team of investment professionals, technical specialists, and operational support to drive results for our 25+ portfolio companies. In 2016, we launched Anzu Industrial Capital Partners, our first venture equity fund, to invest in North American-based private industrial technology companies with approximately $128m in committed capital. In 2019, we launched our second industrial and life science technology fund, Anzu Industrial Capital Partners II, with $190m in committed capital and an expanded set of institutional investors. In early 2020, we launched our growth capital fund, Anzu RBI Preferred Mezzanine and became a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). In 2022, we closed our third fund with more than $200M in committed capital.

While Anzu Partners focuses primarily on the United States and Canada, we have invested in companies with substantial operations in Europe, Singapore, and Australia. Our portfolio includes companies that have achieved breakthroughs in the physical sciences, engineering the world’s first high performance rare-earth free permanent magnets for sustainable electrification, and the life sciences, such as developing the highest resolution single-cell gene sequencing solution for understanding diseases and discovering treatments.

Our companies deliver strong returns for our investors, whether through public listing via IPO or acquisition by larger industrial players such as Siemens, and drive discoveries that improve our world.

Anzu Partners has offices in Boston, MA, San Diego, CA, Washington, DC, Atlanta, GA, and Tampa, FL.
