Bay Partners

Since 1976, Bay Partners has partnered with entrepreneurs in starting and growing over 200 information technology and health care businesses. From just an idea scribbled on a napkin to a first product with early revenue - they have seen it all. The school of hard knocks has given them a deep respect for the entrepreneurial process. It has taught them that there is no one recipe or formula for success. But the one thing that was common amongst their most successful entrepreneurs was that they took large risks and attacked large markets. So don’t be shy, it’s okay to. www.baypartners.com
