February 15, 2023

BluWave, the business builders’ network for private equity grade due diligence and value creation needs, announced today that LLR Partners is a recipient of a 2023 Top Private Equity Innovator Award for the second consecutive year. The awards recognize select private equity firms for their innovation in due diligence, value creation, firm operations and ESG.

The BluWave 2023 Top Private Equity Innovator Award recipients were selected based upon a rigorous assessment in consultation with leading limited partners, investment bankers, service providers and other thought leaders in the private equity ecosystem. BluWave partners with more than 500 leading private equity firms and has a one-of-a-kind perspective that enables it to uniquely understand best practices and innovation in private equity.

Private equity firms were assessed across the following criteria:

  • Proactive Due Diligence Practices
  • Transformative Value Creation
  • Embracement of Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG)
  • Modern Private Equity Firm Operations

“The Top Private Equity Innovators have demonstrated an ability to stay ahead of changing environments, engage in transformative due diligence and value creation, and embrace the strategic value of ESG,” says Sean Mooney, Founder and CEO of BluWave. “They are leaders in creating economic opportunities and building businesses that provide jobs, and we commend them on their innovation and success for the second year in a row.”



Consideration for the BluWave 2023 Top 50 Private Equity Innovator Awards did not require an application and no fees were exchanged. Private equity firms are assessed across the following criteria: proactive due diligence practices, transformation value creation, embracement of ESG and modern firm operations. BluWave’s review assessment included more than 5,000 PE firms in the U.S. and Canada from which 69 PE firms were selected as award recipients. BluWave may otherwise provide services to the LLR Funds portfolio companies, but BluWave confirms that its assessment of the PE firms was independent of any such service arrangements.
