Welcome to Broadline Capital
Formed two decades ago, Broadline Capital is a global alternative investment firm focused primarily on providing capital and strategic support for category leaders and category creators that are reshaping their industry.
Broadline is inspired by champions — people of vision and courage — whose ideas can positively change the world, and who are ready to transform their business into the next big, industry-changing company. The investment team seeks purpose-driven companies that are positioned to create broad impact as the world continues to transition toward an economy increasingly driven by the pursuit of a more Efficient, Sustainable, and Healthier way of life — placing emphasis on companies whose Addressable Markets are large enough to represent a promising commercial opportunity.
Broadline's principals have spent their entire careers building trust-based relationships globally. Most of them previously launched and developed successful companies, where they led some of the most creative deals in the history of their respective categories and negotiated quality exits on behalf of themselves and their investors. Their combined access to domain expertise, pragmatic operating experience, and a vast network of relationships built over many years, help them to add value for Broadline's current portfolio companies. They believe the firm's current opportunities are among the most exciting on the planet.

Broadline's proprietary investment process is designed to stretch alpha at every link of the investment value chain. The investment team seeks diversification by investing across a range of industries, geographies, transaction structures, and market capitalizations. When selecting opportunities, they take a two-pronged approach:
First, the investment team starts with a "Top-Down" approach to identify thematic categories where the combination of growth, strong margins, and broad impact are creating an abundance of opportunities.
Next, they take a "Bottom-Up" approach to screen for companies that are tracking to become category leaders or category creators, with preference for companies that are expecting a near-term liquidity event, valuation milestone, or business model validation event such as IPO or M&A event.
Core Areas of Focus
Sustainability & Environment. Support how the world comes together to reduce pollution and improve energy utilization by (i) creating Energy Storage options that are safer, less toxic, and higher-performing; (ii) accelerating the world's conversion to all-electric and green-powered equipment; (iii) supporting the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) and energy management systems (EMS) for sustainable infrastructure projects such as distributed grids; (iv) introducing technologies to improve GHG emissions sequestration efforts; and (v) improving the Measurement, Reporting, and Verification (MRV) relating to energy data, carbon credits, and renewable energy certificates (RECs).
Purpose-driven Technologies. Advancing creative business models that create value by increasing efficiency, precision, data security, or convenience through the effective use of innovative tools applying SaaS, Business Process Automation, Robotics, or Blockchain.
Financial Services. Unlocking value-added financial service offerings through the use of digital products and services that are Smarter, Faster, and more Accessible.
Healthcare. Accelerating the development and commercialization of novel therapeutic platforms. Applying machine learning tools, synthetic biologic innovations, and less-invasive device technologies to improve Patient Outcomes, Patient Safety, and Affordability.
Food System. Upgrading the food ecosystem through innovations that enable Production Efficiency Gains, Supply Chain Resilience & Traceability, Ingredient Transparency, and opportunities to convert Food Waste into Carbon Credits.

ENDOSCOPIC Medical Devices
EndoSphere is a medical technology company that has developed a first-in-class, less-invasive medical device platform to treat metabolic diseases, including some of the world's largest healthcare issues such as Obesity, Type 2 Diabetes, and Fatty Liver Disease. EndoSphere's novel "Endo-Metabolic" device platform represents a completely new category of devices that is the first to uniquely focus on the Duodenum, the upper intestinal organ that is widely recognized as the body's metabolic control center. Endosphere's flagship anti-obesity device is incisionless, reversible and repeatable. In clinical studies, the device enabled Obese patients to achieve significant Excess Weight Loss (EWL) without the need for more invasive alternatives. Unlike restrictive devices and bariatric surgeries, which typically work against nature, EndoSphere's "Endo-Metabolic" devices work with the body by amplifying its physiological responses to food intake in order to help accelerate satiation, recalibrate brain-gut metabolic feedback loops, recalibrate hormones, and rebalance insulin levels. EndoSphere's patent asset portfolio is 100% company-owned and free from any third-party licensing or royalty obligations. EndoSphere has received numerous industry recognitions, including the industry's "Fierce15" award, named by FierceBiotech, which annually recognizes the world's most promising privately-held medical innovations. The original version of its anti-obesity device received CE Mark (regulatory approval in 31 countries), and an enhanced version has entered clinical stages of development.

Energy & Environment
Carbon-Free Lithium-ion and Solid State BatterY CATHODES
Powermers Inc. is an Energy Storage innovator that has created fundamental advancements in lithium-ion and solid state battery cathode technologies. The company has created the world's first (and only) Carbon-Free Lithium-ion and Solid State Battery Cathodes. Powermers' advanced platform enables efficient adoption by battery manufacturers through its drop-in technology that replaces inactive deadweight materials (including Carbon, Binders, and Solvents) with safer, higher-performing conductive nano-scale polymers. Powermers' differentiated results have been published in industry peer-review publications including American Chemical Society's Applied Materials & Interfaces. These fundamental advancements in cathode technology were independently validated by U.S. government labs (CERL) and universities around the world, including the Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University. Independently-validated lab results of both coin cell batteries and scaled pouches demonstrate Powermers' low-cost transition-metal polymers to provide higher catalytic functionality than pure noble-metal catalysts including gold, platinum, and palladium. Powermers' advanced polymer technology platform measurably increases Safety, reduces Toxicity, and increases Performance. The 5-point Powermers Advantage:
1. Safer: Mitigates Thermal Runaway Risk (the prevailing cause of combustion in high-voltage Lithium-ion batteries).
2. Less Toxic: Reduces reliance on costly Toxic Solvents in the battery manufacturing process.
3. Higher Performing: Expands Active Material Limits without sacrificing Power, Cycle Life, Weight, or Cost per KWH.
4. Drop-in Adoption: Enables rapid adoption into existing battery manufacturing processes.
5. Cost Savings per KWH: Reduces Total Cost per KWH by eliminating reliance on costly solvents while enabling greater energy.
