What excites you the most about being a growth equity investor?

So many things! Working with entrepreneurs to help them achieve their vision. Building and scaling market leading companies. Solving challenges. Making a positive impact and adding value. Being a trusted partner. It’s a privilege to play a part in their journey and I’m grateful for that opportunity.
