About Blue Water Capital

Founded in 1995, Blue Water Capital (BWC) is a venture capital firm with about $100 million under management. BWC has always invested in expansion stage information technology companies, requiring that prospective investments be profitable and have at least $2 million in prior year revenue. Blue Water Capital places great weight on management's long-term vision and ability to execute its plans. One of the key tenets of BWC's investment philosophy is that by having a longer term investment horizon (5-7 years), Blue Water portfolio companies will have greater opportunities for successful exits.
