Ballast Point Ventures

Ballast Point Ventures is a later stage venture capital and growth equity fund founded in 2002. BPV has $200 million in capital under management and looks to invest in established but rapidly growing privately owned companies located in the Southeastern U.S. and Texas. BPV seeks to invest primarily in expansion financings for existing businesses but will also invest to fund acquisitions or to provide liquidity to one or more of a company’s existing shareholders.

BPV invests across a diversified group of industries which have favorable growth and investment characteristics, and in which the Partners have substantial knowledge and experience. These industries include healthcare, communications, technology-enabled business services, and consumer.

Ballast Point Ventures seeks opportunities to invest $3 million to $10 million in growth equity capital but has the ability to arrange larger investments through syndication with its Limited Partners. BPV’s offices are located in St. Petersburg, FL. For more information please visit the BPV website at or blog at
