Experienced Partnership

We’re honored to have partnered with some of the world’s best entrepreneurs.

Summit Partners was founded in 1984 with a commitment to find and partner with exceptional entrepreneurs to help them accelerate their growth and achieve dramatic results.

Since then, Summit has become the investment partner of choice for many of the best growth companies in the world. We’ve grown to a team of more than 100 investments professionals, led by 30 Managing Directors whose tenures average more than 13 years with Summit. We have the capital and team to support your growth initiatives.

Flexible Investment Approach

From venture capital to growth equity to fixed income, we can provide capital to fit all stages of your growth.

Our range of funds enables us to offer tailored options designed to support your company’s continued growth. Entrepreneurs and management teams use capital from Summit Partners for a variety of purposes—from growth and shareholder liquidity to recapitalizations and management buyouts—but always with the singular goal of success.

We are currently investing more than $9.5 billion into equity and fixed income opportunities. Our target investment range is $10 million to more than $500 million. We are equally comfortable investing for minority or majority positions.
