Spectrum Equity Named to Inc.'s Top Founder-Friendly Investors List for Third Consecutive Year

Inc. Magazine

Spectrum Equity is pleased to be ranked by Inc. as one of the top private equity firms for entrepreneurs and founders. For 28 years, our specialized investment approach and focus on recurring revenue business models has resonated with founders and entrepreneurs. Our partnerships with portfolio company management teams are built on trust and serve as the foundation to scaling companies. We are honored to partner with leaders at our portfolio companies and help them achieve their growth potential.

The final list recognizes firms that entrepreneurs collaborate with and trust as they receive the financial support they need to help drive growth. All have successful track records of remaining actively involved with the businesses they invest in. “Fully investing in an entrepreneur, and their innovative vision, involves far more than the financial investment. By developing relationships with and supporting entrepreneurs for the long term, these private equity firms are more than investors, they’re partners,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. media.

To compile the list, Inc. went straight to the source: entrepreneurs who have sold to private equity and venture capital firms. Founders filled out a questionnaire about their experiences partnering with private equity and venture capital firms and shared data on how their portfolio companies have grown during these partnerships.
