GrowthCap has released its selections for the Top 25 Growth Equity Firms of 2021. Hundreds of firms were considered and evaluated based on sector expertise, strategic acumen, operational efficiencies, and firm culture. This year’s winners were chosen based on their ability to consistently identify great investment opportunities, create value for portfolio companies and optimize outcomes for all stakeholders involved.
Another thread connecting the winners is that 24 out of 25 of them use SourceScrub for private company intelligence.
2021 was a year unlike any other for private equity firms. Dealmakers were forced to do more with less, and competition was higher than ever, with over 3,500 growth equity firms operating in the US alone. It’s clear the firms that embraced data, advanced technology, and new school dealmaking came out on top.
Among the top 25 this year is Silversmith Capital Partners. Silversmith Capital Partners has $2 billion of capital under management and believes the best way to support top entrepreneurs is to support them by crafting long-term partnerships that will help them achieve more than they could alone.
Nathaniel Gibbs, a Growth Equity Investor at Silversmith, sums up SourceScrub’s influence: “The SourceScrub platform is integral for our deal-origination effort. Uncovering businesses within target sectors that meet the parameters of our thesis now takes only minutes — a process that took us days to evaluate in the past. Our team’s efficiency and level of output has greatly increased since we started utilizing SourceScrub.”
JMI Equity is a growth equity firm focused on software companies, and another winner on this year’s list. They say, “SourceScrub is an incredibly helpful tool for finding interesting opportunities. SourceScrub’s platform is accurate and comprehensive and has become a key part of our sourcing workflow.”
