Battery Ventures today announced that is has closed two new funds,

and related markets. The firm raised predecessor fund Battery Ventures
IX ($750M) in March 2010.

BV X and BV X Side Fund will be co-invested, with the Side Fund providing the flexibility to support larger growth and buyout situations without disrupting the concentration in BV X. The firm funds companies worldwide, with the majority of its investments in North America, Israel and Europe.
