Growth equity investment firm Edison Partners has announced that it has opened a new office at the Nashville Warehouse Company in the Wedgewood Houston neighborhood. The firm is headquartered in Princeton, NJ.

According to a news release announcing the new office, Edison Partners is a 38-year-old firm known for its investments in growth stage technology companies in emerging tech hubs of North American markets outside of Silicon Valley and was one of the first software investors in the Mid-Atlantic corridor. More than 70 percent of its portfolio companies reside in markets beyond Silicon Valley and New York City. Cities represented by the firm’s last dozen investments range from Birmingham, AL; Dallas and Houston, TX; Newark, NJ, and Zionsville, IN.

“We’re thrilled to have a physical presence in Nashville and join this community. Economic growth in the Southeast has been tremendous and technology momentum is in the early innings in the region,” said Chris Sugden, Managing Partner of Edison Partners. “The region brings together a strong business network and nearby universities graduating incredible talent. This is matched with supply chain, logistics and business-friendly policy that supports young companies. All are critical elements in growing the types of companies we partner with, which range from $10 million to $50 million revenue.”
