Inc.’s Founder-Friendly Investor list recognizes the top private equity, venture capital and private debt firms committed to partnering with entrepreneurs to accelerate their businesses. The 2023 list recognizes 218 firms that remain actively involved and work closely with the companies that they invest in, which, in turn, has earned them the trust of the entrepreneurs they support to drive growth and innovation. To compile this list, Inc. surveyed entrepreneurs who have sold their businesses to private equity and venture capital firms and were referred by applicants. These founders responded to a questionnaire about their experiences and provided data on the growth of their companies during these partnerships. Firms pay an application fee to be considered for this list. The Founder-Friendly Investor list is announced annually by Inc. The 2023 list was released on October 31, 2023.
