Adam Jackson has joined Robert Bosch Venture Capital from Bose, heading up the unit's newly formed Boston office.
Adam Jackson has left Bose Ventures, the investment arm of audio equipment producer Bose, after nearly five years, to join Robert Bosch Venture Capital (RBVC), a subsidiary of industrial technology manufacturer Robert Bosch.
The move comes after RBVC announced a €250m ($268m) fifth fund earlier this month. The vehicle will target sustainable and climate-neutral technology developers, focusing on areas such as energy efficiency and powertrain electrification.
As head of corporate development and ventures at Bose Ventures from 2017, Jackson led investments in companies including hearing improvement product developer HearX, fitness app provider Aaptiv and MedRhythms, which develops digital therapeutics.
Regarding his role at RBVC, Jackson said in a LinkedIn post: “After five incredible years at Bose Ventures, I am happy to announce I will be joining RBVC as an investment partner leading the newly formed [US] east coast office based in Boston.”
In addition to the Boston office and its headquarters in Germany, the unit runs another US office located on the west coast in Sunnyvale, California. It has a presence in Israel and also runs a China-based investment subsidiary dubbed Boyuan Capital.
“As a global investor we are part of the startup scene, looking out for the next disruptive innovation that will turn markets on their head,” said Ingo Ramesohl, managing director at RBVC. “This second US office will ensure we are even better at keeping our finger on the pulse of technology startups.”
