    Split Rock Partners invests in emerging healthcare, software and Internet services companies in the Upper Midwest and West Coast. The firm is an early-stage venture capital firm that was founded in June 2004 by the former healthcare and software investment teams of St. Paul Venture Capital (SPVC). The Split Rock team managed over $1 billion of venture capital during its tenure at SPVC, and continues to manage the SPVC healthcare and software portfolio. In May of 2008, the Partners raised $300 million in the second Split Rock Partners fund, the successor to the inaugural $275 million fund raised in April 2005. The firm has an office in Minnesota.
