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. At Broadline, we are 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.
We seek 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 Sustainable, more Efficient, and Healthier way of life. We place emphasis on selecting 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. They have launched and developed successful companies, led some of the most creative deals in the history of their category, and negotiated quality exits on behalf of themselves and their investors. Their access to domain expertise, pragmatic operating experience, and vast network of relationships built over many years combine to support Broadline's companies. We believe our 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. We seek diversification by investing across a range of industries, geographies, transaction structures, and market capitalizations. When selecting opportunities, we take a two-pronged approach:
First, we start with a "Top-Down" screen to identify companies in five thematic categories that we believe to have an abundance of exciting opportunity for future growth, strong margins, and broad impact as the world continues to transition toward an economy increasingly driven by the pursuit of a more Sustainable, more Efficient, and Healthier way of life.
Next, we take a "Bottom-Up" screen to select Category Creators and Category Leaders, placing emphasis on companies where the management team is expecting a near-term liquidity transaction (such as IPO or M&A event) and is working to create exceptional long-term value for all key stakeholders – including shareholders, contributing team members, suppliers, customers, neighbors, and society.
Broadline primarily focuses on 5 thematic areas where its team has demonstrated an abundance of deal access to companies having strong growth trajectory, strong margin potential, and an opportunity to create broad impact as the world continues to transition toward an economy increasingly driven by the pursuit of a more Sustainable, more Efficient, and Healthier way of life. Our 5 themes are:
Sustainability. Innovating how the world produces, monitors, reports, verifies, stores, and monetizes green energy, renewable energy certificates (RECs), and carbon credits. Enabling the transition toward green-powered equipment including green hydrogen, green ammonia, wind, solar, and the "electrification of everything."
Purpose-driven Technologies. Supporting creative business models that provide broader access, improved precision, and increased efficiencies through innovative applications of Machine Learning, Blockchain, SaaS, Robotics, Business Process Automation, and Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellite technologies.
Financial Services. Unlocking value through digital products and services that are Smarter, Faster, and more broadly Accessible using innovative applications of FinTech, Insurtech, and Blockchain-based technology platforms.
Healthcare Innovations. Accelerating the development and commercialization of novel therapeutic platforms. Using AI-based synthetic biologic innovations and less-invasive device technologies to Increase Safety and Improve Patient Outcomes.
Food System Resilience. Supporting innovations in Agritech, Smart Greenhouses, and Delivery Solutions. Helping to improve Food Safety, Traceability, Production Efficiencies, and Supply Chain Resilience.

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 Storage Innovations
Carbon-Free Lithium-ion and Solid State BatterY CATHODES
Powermers Inc. has created the world's first Carbon-Free Cathodes for lithium-ion and solid state batteries. They did it by replacing inactive deadweight material (such as carbon, binders and solvents) with Powermers' proprietary conductive polymer materials. Powermers' transition-metal polymers demonstrate higher catalytic functionality than pure noble-metal catalysts (including gold, platinum, and palladium). Differentiated results in Safety and Energy Capacity are documented in industry peer-review publications, including American Chemical Society's Applied Materials & Interfaces. Results are independently validated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (CERL) and universities around the world, including the Center for Automotive Research at The Ohio State University (O.S.U. C.A.R.). These third-party labs have independently verified the following 5 measurable advantages of Powermers' cathode technology platform:
- Safer: Increased Safety, Stability, and Simplicity...Dramatically reducing Thermal Runaway Risk (the prevailing cause of battery combustion).
- Less Toxicity: Reduced reliance on Toxic Solvents.
- Higher Energy: Expanded Active Material Limit, increasing Energy without sacrificing Power, Cycle Life, Weight, or Cost per KWH.
- Drop-in Replacement: Ease of adoption into established battery manufacturing processes.
- Cost Savings per KWH: Reduced Total Cost per KWH enabled by decreased reliance on costly toxic solvents.
