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 strategic assets across three venture funds, a mezzanine revenue-based investing fund (“RBI”), and a special purpose acquisition company (“SPAC”). The venture capital funds focus on investments in early-stage companies, ranging from pre-revenue to post-commercialization, where we have deep knowledge and relationships to drive value for investors. RBI provides capital through a non-dilutive preferred share vehicle to post-revenue companies, offering an alternative to traditional venture and debt financing.

Anzu primarily invests in companies across North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific.
