Atop The Growth Equity World: Blackstone Growth’s Global Head Jon Korngold

When it comes to growth equity, Jon Korngold, Global Head of Blackstone Growth, is as good as it gets. Perhaps he can be considered one of the few who sets today’s bar in the asset class. His rapid rise began at Goldman Sachs and General Atlantic, but maybe it began even earlier, maybe it began with a piece of advice his father gave him when he was growing up.

Blackstone recently announced the final close of Blackstone Growth (BXG), its inaugural growth equity fund. BXG was oversubscribed and closed at its hard cap of $4.5 billion – with third-party capital commitments from a wide range of family offices, entrepreneurs, endowments, strategic institutional investors, pension funds, high-net-worth individuals, and other investors – making it the largest first-time growth equity private fund raised in history.

We cover a lot of ground in our conversation from Blackstone Growth’s approach to growth equity to its unique platform capabilities to the importance of ESG.

We hope you enjoy the show.
