Broadline Capital's proprietary investment process is designed to stretch alpha at every link of the investment value chain. Broadline's multi-source origination process continuously replenishes our curated pipeline of privileged-access negotiated deals (not auctions). Broadline seeks to mitigate risks by seeking alignment with the target company's management team, tailoring each deal to its situation, and pursuing diversification across a range of industries, geographies, structures, stages, and market capitalizations.
When selecting opportunities, Broadline takes a two-pronged screening approach:
First, we start with a "Top-Down" view to identify exciting thematic categories that are positioned to grow and create broad impact as the world continues to transition toward an economy increasingly driven by purpose-driven innovation, healthy living, and the pursuit of a more efficient and sustainable way of life.
Next, we take a "Bottom-Up" view to evaluate candidates as we look for category leaders and category creators that are helping to reshape their industry and whose founding management teams display the credibility and readiness to benefit from Broadline's platform and relationship network.
Broadline Capital's involvement is frequently focused on supporting a portfolio company's accelerated expansion, product commercialization, or consolidation with compatible enterprises. We place emphasis on five core thematic areas:
Sustainability & Environment. Energy Storage Systems, Electric Powertrains, Electrified Industrial Equipment, Electric Vehicles, Electric Aircraft, and OEM value chains supporting these technologies
Health & Life Sciences. Disruptive new platform technologies for improving patient outcomes in Biotech, Pharma, and non-invasive Medical Devices
Agribusiness & The Food System. Sustainable Agriculture, Traceability, More Efficient Delivery Solutions, and Healthier Foods & Beverages
Paperless Financial Services & Economic Empowerment. Affordable Credit, Alternative Credit Scoring, Insurtech, Digital Payments, Digital Wealth Management, and additional FinTech opportunities

Health & Life Sciences
Non-INVASIVE Medical Devices
Founded in 2006, EndoSphere is a medical technology company that has developed a first-in-class, non-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 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, this first device has enabled Obese patients to achieve significant Excess Weight Loss (EWL) without the need for invasive alternatives such as restrictive devices or bariatric surgeries. Unlike restrictive devices and surgeries, which work against nature, EndoSphere's "Endo-Metabolic" devices work with the body, amplifying the natural physiological responses to food intake in order to help accelerate satiety, recalibrate brain-gut metabolic feedback loops, recalibrate hormones, and rebalance insulin levels. EndoSphere's portfolio of patent assets is 100% company-owned and free from any third-party licensing or royalty obligations. EndoSphere has received numerous industry recognitions, including the medical device industry's inaugural "Fierce15" award, named by FierceBiotech, annually recognizing the world's most promising privately-held medical innovations. EndoSphere's first version of its anti-obesity device has received CE Mark (regulatory approval in 31 countries), and its enhanced version has now entered clinical stages of development.

Sustainability & Environment
Energy Storage InnovatOR
Founded in 2010, Powermers has developed the world's first Carbon-Free Lithium-ion Battery Cathodes by replacing "deadweight" materials in conventional cathodes (carbon and binders) with Powermers' proprietary conductive nano-scale advanced materials. Powermers' transition-metal polymers demonstrate higher catalytic functionality than pure noble-metal catalysts including gold, platinum, and palladium. The result: Measurable differentiation in both superior safety and energy performance, independently-validated by two of the industry's most trusted third-party battery testing labs: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' battery validation lab (C.E.R.L.), and The Ohio State University's Center for Automotive Research validation lab (O.S.U. C.A.R.). The performance and safety results are published in the peer-reviewed American Chemical Society's Applied Materials & Interfaces Journal. Powermers owns 100% of its IP asset portfolio free from third-party licensing or royalty obligations. Powermers' carbon-replacement technology demonstrate the following advantages for lithium-ion batteries:
Increased Safety and Stability: Powermers' technology significantly improves safety and stability for high-voltage lithium-ion batteries by reducing the Thermal Runaway Risk, the primary cause of high-voltage lithium-ion battery over-heating. In past years, Thermal Runaway Risk has caused billions of dollars in market value losses during specific events experienced by high-profile listed companies such as Tesla and Samsung, who place a high priority on product safety.
Higher Energy Performance: Replacing conventional "deadweight" components of carbon and binders with our conductive polymers helps to expand the resulting battery's Active Material Limit, increasing its Specific Energy without sacrificing any other KPI including Power, Cycle Life, Weight, or Cost per KWH.
Greater Cost Efficiency and Ease of Adoption: Powermers' carbon-replacement technology can be readily adopted by manufacturers's existing facilities, not requiring any significant change to basic steps in their current manufacturing process. In addition to producing a safer and better performing battery, our technology enables total cost savings per KWH due to the reduced need for costly solvents.
