Who We Are

Northbound Ventures, LLC is a professional services firm based in Somerville, Massachusetts. Our mission is to assist the development of sustainable communities and regional food systems, that in turn improve social wellness and allow equal opportunity for economic prosperity.

What We Do

We provide strategic guidance, stakeholder engagement, operational analysis, and program design to businesses, health care institutions, K-12 schools, universities, government agencies, and non-profit organizations seeking to enhance sustainability performance and to influence food sourcing practices.

We offer technical assistance and customer insight to entrepreneurs throughout the food supply chain, who seek to differentiate on the basis of sustainability and require food industry expertise to navigate complex organizational procurement structures and access new markets.

There is a broad need for increased understanding of the connections between our food, health, environment, and economy and we see a tremendous opportunity to empower others through a systems approach to leading change.
