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

The opportunity to collaborate with and learn from talented entrepreneurs, who have worked tirelessly to build successful businesses. Growth companies are in an exciting stage of development, as they have established a strong product-market fit and are in the process of achieving broad market adoption. There is nothing more rewarding than finding a way to help management teams at this stage realize their visions and, in many cases, change the way an industry does business.
