Boston Capital Ventures manages private venture capital partnership funds for individual and institutional investors which invest in growth companies. The original BCV fund was formed in 1982. For BCV IV and V, Johan von der Goltz has assembled a new management team which includes partners Jack Shields and Alex von der Goltz and support staff. The partners are accomplished and experienced professionals who have a diverse and complementary range of skills and a broad network of domestic and international relationships. The existing Boston Capital Ventures partnerships have attracted leading U.S. institutions and individuals from 16 countries as investors. BCV's proximity to one of the world's largest centers of entrepreneurial activity is an advantage in sourcing and managing its portfolio of investments.
