LLR Partners Named One of the Top Founder-Friendly Investors by Inc. Magazine

October 5, 2021

LLR Partners is pleased to share that our firm was named one of the top Founder-Friendly Investors by Inc. Magazine. This list recognizes the private equity and venture capital firms that entrepreneurs can trust and collaborate with while receiving the financial support they need to help accelerate growth.

To compile the list, Inc. went straight to the source, asking entrepreneurs to share their experiences partnering with their investors, along with data to demonstrate how their companies have grown during the time of investment. In addition to the Private Equity list, LLR was also recognized on industry-focused lists for the most Founder-Friendly Investors in Healthcare, Information Technology and Financial Services companies.

This is LLR’s third consecutive year on the Inc. Founder-Friendly Investors list. Since inception 22 years ago, LLR has focused on creating value through partnership, and 70% of our platform deals have been founder-led at the time of investment. When collaborating with LLR, founders, CEOs and their teams gain access to the knowledge, network and resources that can help them realize their visions and accelerate growth. LLR’s integrated Investment, Value Creation and Market Development Teams are here and ready to help, when our portfolio companies need us.
