Broadview Ventures is a mission-driven fund. Its primary investment goal is to improve human health in the areas of cardiovascular disease and stroke. We define success as improving human health by bringing innovative technologies to patients.
The mission and structure of Broadview Ventures can be traced to the Leducq Foundation and its supporting Trust, created in 1996 by French entrepreneur and industrialist Jean Leducq, together with his wife Sylviane. Motivated by a multi-generational family history of cardiovascular illness, and inspired to work at the international level through years of living and working abroad, the Leducqs established a foundation for cardiovascular research with a mission to improve human health through international efforts to combat cardiovascular and neurovascular disease.
In 2008, Broadview Ventures was created to address the translational gap by providing seed and early stage funding via equity investments in companies developing innovative technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
In 2019, due to the mission and financial success of Broadview Ventures, the Trust created a new investment vehicle – Longview Ventures. Longview’s strategy is to make follow-on investments in Broadview portfolio companies that are poised to achieve significant value-creating milestones with their next financing round.
