New York, NY October 12, 2022 – BBH Capital Partners (BBHCP), the private equity arm of Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. (BBH), was named to Inc.’s fourth annual Founder-Friendly Investors list, honoring the private equity and venture capital firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs. The list recognizes 184 firms that entrepreneurs collaborate with and trust as they receive the financial support they need to help drive growth. These firms have successful track records of remaining actively involved with the businesses they invest in.
“We are proud to have been named to Inc.’s Founder-Friendly Investor’s list, especially since the list was compiled based on feedback from the entrepreneurs we have partnered with,” said Alice Birnbaum, BBHCP’s Head of Business Development.
“One of our key differentiators—one that entrepreneurs value—is our ability to connect them to BBH’s extensive global network allowing them to access new customer/vendor relationships, gain introductions to potential acquisition targets, and connect with other like-minded entrepreneurs,” added Bradley Langer, Co-Manager and Principal of BBHCP.
“Fully investing in an entrepreneur, and their innovative vision, involves far more than the financial investment. By developing relationships with and supporting entrepreneurs for the long-term, these private equity firms are more than investors, they’re partners,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. media.
To compile the list, Inc. went straight to the source: entrepreneurs who have sold to private equity and venture capital firms. Founders filled out a questionnaire about their experiences partnering with private equity and venture capital firms and shared data on how their portfolio companies have grown during these partnerships.
