Broadview Ventures is a mission-driven investment organization
Broadview's 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.
French entrepreneur and industrialist Jean Leducq, together with his wife Sylviane, created the Leducq Foundation in Paris, France. The source of support for the new foundation was the proceeds from the sale of the family’s international linen and uniform services businesses in Europe and in North America, which took place the following year. Having strong ties in both Europe and in North America, the Leducqs decided to orient the foundation to support internationally collaborative research in cardiovascular disease and stroke, initially targeting the grant program to investigators from the two continents where they had lived and worked.
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.
The Leducq Trust created an independent 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.
