Inc. Magazine Selects Greenridge as a Top Private Equity Firm for Entrepreneurs

Ten years ago, we set out to build a different type of private equity firm. Last week, Greenridge Growth Partners was recognized by Inc. Magazine as a top private equity firm for entrepreneurs. We take great pride in this recognition and are filled with gratitude for all who have made it possible.

Greenridge has a partnership-focused culture, and this award is a tribute to the exceptional people with whom we are privileged to work. That starts with the founders who have graciously welcomed us into their businesses. Our shared success is not possible without their trust and partnership, and we are proud that this recognition indicates their trust has been well-placed. This award is also a reflection of the quality of the Greenridge team. We are a values-led organization, and our people live those values every day. Without their extraordinary character and contributions, we are just another private equity firm.

To be viewed as “founder friendly”, we must also help to produce results. That means rolling up our sleeves alongside our partners as we collectively navigate the tough decisions that ultimately drive value. Our ability to do that effectively over the long-term is a product of our narrow investment focus, as the challenges and opportunities facing bootstrapped, lower middle-market software business can be unique. Our specialization helps us to be the value-added partner that the founders behind these businesses deserve.

Good reputations are hard won and easily lost. We are humbled to have received this recognition and will continue to work hard to set an example for how best to partner with entrepreneurs.
