Global Partner Network Drives Commercial Opportunities

For more than 25 years, we have built and nurtured our Global Partner Network – a strategic network of more than 500 executives from many of the world’s leading financial services firms.

Cultivating Connections Across Our Network

The interplay we facilitate between innovators and leading companies makes FTV unique among growth equity investors. We actively connect our Global Partner Network executives with our portfolio companies. This exchange of crucial market feedback and commercial introductions – more than 300 a year – opens doors to speed up business development.

Bringing Value to Executives in Our Global Partner Network

With an aim to advance their enterprises, active involvement in FTV’s Global Partner Network provides:

  • Direct access to FTV domain experts who provide enhanced market intelligence in sectors of interest
  • Exposure to potential commercial solutions through FTV introductions. We connect with nearly 10,000 innovative companies annually
  • Industry networking at the FTV Annual Partner Conference, Strategic Advisory Board meetings, customized topical executive workshops and discussion groups

Dedicated Business Development Team

Many investors promise to help their companies with networking and lead sourcing, but don’t have a systematic approach to making commercial introductions. Through a dedicated business development team, FTV drives industry-leading conversations and actively connects executives in our Global Partner Network and our portfolio companies to open doors to strategic and commercial relationships.


Connections That Count

A cornerstone of our business development efforts, FTV’s Annual Partner Conference brings together our limited partners, portfolio companies and our Global Partner Network for two days of market trend discussions, networking and one-on-one interactions.

Meet Our Strategic Advisory Board

At the core of our GPN is our Strategic Advisory Board, comprised of executives and recognized leaders from our industry sectors. The Board meets twice a year to discuss emerging market themes and exchange ideas.

Our advisors provide a distinct view into needs of the global enterprise, revealing key insights that growing companies can leverage into market leadership opportunities.
