GrowthCap is pleased to announce the most recent cohort of growth equity firms awarded Best Growth Investment Firm. These five firms were selected based on a thorough evaluation of feedback provided by each firm’s colleagues, peers and portfolio company CEOs, as well as prior GrowthCap awards won. We took into account further research on each firm’s investment activity, value creation capabilities and ESG commitment in addition to direct conversations with investment team members in select cases. These awardees join the Top 25 Growth Equity Firms announced earlier this year in attaining the Best Growth Investment Firm designation.
