Jeffrey McCormick, a founding partner of the Boston venture capital firm Saturn Partners, has filed papers to run for governor in 2014 as an independent, adding a new dynamic to the 2014 field already crowded with a handful of Democrats, one Republican and another independent.
McCormick, who lists a Beacon Street address near the Public Gardens, formed an account to run for governor on Monday morning with the Office of Campaign and Political Finance.

McCormick founded Saturn in 1994 to finance early-stage growth companies, according to a biography on the company’s website that lists him as the managing partner of the firm. Saturn touts among its successful investments Twin Rivers Technologies, the email marketing company Constant Contact and Boston Duck Tours.
McCormick, 52, of Boston, also sits on the board of the Sean McDonough Charitable Foundation, the Citi Performing Arts Center, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and Trinity Church Boston. He is a graduate of Syracuse University.
