Indian entrepreneurs who aspire to build market-leading businesses find a natural philosophical alignment with Summit Partners. As pioneers of growth equity investing, we not only provide growth capital to promoters, but also enable them to maintain day-to-day control of their businesses.
Our Mumbai-based team has access to a seasoned mix of investors and former operators from India, North America and Europe who bring forth a global network of intermediaries, entrepreneurs, and industry contacts. This global network helps Indian promoters in many areas including domestic and international business development, acquisition identification and execution, recruitment of board and management teams, and execution of initial public offering (IPO) or strategic sale of their businesses.
In India, our primary focus is on growth equity investments from INR50 crores ($10 million) to more than INR500 crores ($100 million) per company. Summit Partners looks for rapidly growing companies across a variety of growth industry sectors. We are interested in partnering with Indian entrepreneurs who have navigated their businesses to a leadership position by identifying a market opportunity and implementing an innovative business model or technology to create a sustainable business advantage.
We have backed a number of successful Indian entrepreneurs in North America, and more than a 20 of our portfolio companies have a major presence in India. We have assisted these companies in developing their Indian operations, sales offices, development centers and joint ventures.
