Bella Research Group is a boutique advisory firm focused on the needs of the private capital industry. With a small, dedicated team led by Dr. Josh Lerner from Harvard Business School, we provide our clients with thoughtful insights, rigorous analysis, relevant training, and intellectually grounded advice. Our bespoke, high-value-added products address the needs of venture capital and private equity fund managers, investors, entrepreneurs, innovators, and policymakers.
What We Do
Bella performs a wide variety of advisory projects for financial institutions, such as private equity and venture capital groups. At times these projects deal with very specific questions, such as how to better position a group to raise a new fund. In other cases, the projects provide a broad overview of the changing environment, a group’s strengths and weaknesses in relation to these trends, and the resulting strategic implications.
Who We Are
Dr. Josh Lerner lives on a farm in Hamilton, Massachusetts with his wife Wendy and a menagerie of horses, donkeys, sheep, rabbits, hens, dogs and cats. They came upon a newborn goat up for adoption and named her Bella. She grew into a beloved family pet, sleeping on the bed, riding along in the truck, and becoming best friends with a donkey. After many years of collaboration, business partners Dr. Lerner and Ann Leamon became incorporated in 2010 and named the firm in her honor.Learn More
