Partners from Bregal Sagemount, Institutional Venture Partners (IVP), and Turn/River Capital Top the List
GrowthCap announced today its annual Top 40 Under 40 Growth Investors ranking. The list was compiled based on nominations as well as a methodical review of the nominated investor’s deal experience, overall background, firm reputation, and position as well as other key factors. The most weight was given to investors whose peers ranked them as the best of the best.
Ranking #1 on this year’s list was Daniel Kim of Bregal Sagemount, a New York-based growth capital investment firm. Bregal Sagemount has quickly made a name for itself in the growth investing space since its founding in 2012, and their $650M fund is one of the largest debut funds in the growth company segment. The firm also recently expanded to include various credit-focused strategies. Daniel commented on the ranking and Sagemount’s unique ability to partner with companies to provide an optimal financing solution, “Our mission at Sagemount is to be the most flexible source of capital for growth companies. We appreciate that every business and situation is different and have built a platform that can meet entrepreneurs’ needs across all parts of a capital structure, debt or equity, minority or control. Instead of showing up with a preconceived notion of what an investment opportunity looks like, we start with a blank sheet of paper and figure out what makes sense for everyone around the table. This collaborative approach often makes Sagemount the ideal partner for owners and operators.”
GrowthCap CEO RJ Lumba also reflected on the broader market of investors who made the list, “Having worked in growth financings for over a decade, and having spoken with hundreds of investors along the way I am now more encouraged and excited than ever about the future of the growth economy. The top investors on our list demonstrate the experience, talent, and drive needed to ensure today’s entrepreneurs and executives receive the right financial and strategic support to grow their companies and achieve success over the long run.”
