Golub Growth Named to Inc.’s 2023 Founder-Friendly Investors List
The annual roundup highlights the private equity, venture capital and debt firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs
San Francisco, CA, October 31, 2023 – Golub Growth has been named to Inc.’s fifth annual Founder-Friendly Investors list, which honors those private equity, venture capital and debt firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs.
Golub Growth is an affiliate of Golub Capital, a market-leading, award-winning direct lender and experienced credit asset manager. Golub Growth provides custom debt and equity capital solutions designed to help venture-backed SaaS businesses accelerate sales growth, drive new product development, pursue strategic acquisitions and provide shareholder liquidity.
“We are honored to be recognized and thank our partners for their support,” said Peter Fair, Managing Director at Golub Growth. “We pride ourselves on providing solutions that fit our clients’ goals and partnering beyond financial capital to enable our clients to succeed through every opportunity and challenge.”
Golub Growth has a track record of partnering with leading B2B SaaS companies across a range of different industries, including Arctic Wolf, Filevine, Harri and Tebra.
“Now more than ever, founder-led companies need financing partners that offer guidance, expertise, and understanding—not just capital. These are the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms that have founders’ backs when it comes to accelerating growth,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business Media.
Introduced in 2019, the Founder-Friendly Investors list has become a reputable guide for entrepreneurs who want to grow their companies while retaining an ownership stake. 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, venture capital and debt firms and shared data on how their portfolio companies have grown during these partnerships.
