In 1984, we started Summit Partners with a vision of helping companies realize their full growth potential. As a fast-growing company, we learned firsthand about the value of hard work and innovation, striving against odds and following a dream. Today, we are a leader in growth equity and credit investing for rapidly growing companies. Our investment team is one of the largest and most experienced in the business. We employ more than 85 investment professionals across our four offices in Boston, Menlo Park and London. In total, we employ more than 160 people.
Since our founding in 1984, Summit Partners has raised nearly $15 billion in capital, and has invested in more than 380 businesses across North America, Europe and Asia. These companies have completed more than 130 public offerings and in excess of 135 strategic sales or mergers.
Whether we take a minority or majority ownership position, our approach is the same. We view ourselves as a growth investor that provides strategic and operational guidance to help proven, existing management teams reach their companies’ full potential.
Summit Partners has built an extensive record of helping entrepreneurs identify and execute expansion strategies that build long-term value. Our senior investment professionals serve on the boards of directors and assist the management teams of our portfolio companies, providing them with direct points of access to our entire firm.
