LLR Partners Named to Inc.’s 2020 Private Equity 50 List

October 27, 2020

LLR Partners is proud to share that our firm has been named to the second annual Inc. Private Equity 50 list, honoring the most founder-friendly PE firms that help businesses thrive, even in the face of unprecedented challenges.

The Private Equity 50 list recognizes 50 firms that entrepreneurs can trust, collaborate with on new strategies, and look to help in financing acquisitions during these uncertain times. To compile the list, Inc. asked portfolio company founders to share their experiences partnering with their investors, along with data to demonstrate how their companies have grown during the time of investment.

Since inception 21 years ago, LLR has believed in creating value through partnership, and 70% of our platform deals have been founder-led at the time of investment. With the recent closing of our sixth fund at $1.8 billion, LLR will continue to collaborate with our portfolio companies to define high-impact growth initiatives, turn them into action and create long-term value.

As a United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment signatory, LLR also considers environmental, social and governance factors when investing and is committed to diversity, equity and inclusion at the firm and its portfolio companies.

Consideration for the Inc. 2021 Founder-Friendly Investors list required submission of an online application and total application fees of less than $5,000. Honorees were chosen by Inc. based on the selection criteria in these FAQs.
