GREENWICH, CT – Great Point Partners (“GPP”), a Greenwich-based private investment firm focused exclusively on the health care industry, announced today that it was included on Inc.’s Founder-Friendly Investors list, which honors the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms with track records of successfully partnering with entrepreneurs.
The list recognizes firms that remain actively involved with the businesses in which they invest and that have earned the trust of the entrepreneurs they support to help drive growth.
Since GPP’s inception in 2003, the firm has been dedicated to helping health care companies achieve their full potential. Over the last two decades, GPP has supported entrepreneurs by providing capital, facilitating acquisitions, and offering unparalleled resources and strategic long-term guidance – all without taking over daily operational control. The firm is led by a team of Managing Directors who have invested together for close to two decades and is advised by a CEO Board of leading health care industry executives, as well as a Medical Advisory Board of physicians and scientists.
“As a firm that is committed to supporting the health care industry’s most innovative entrepreneurs, we are honored to be recognized for our approach to partnership,” said Dr. Jeffrey Jay, Founder and Managing Partner of GPP. “I am proud of our exceptional team, and we look forward to continuing to elevate businesses that are improving and advancing health care in the United States and around the world.”
Introduced in 2019, the Founder-Friendly Investors has become a go-to guide for entrepreneurs who want to grow their companies while retaining an ownership stake. 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 investment firms and shared data on how their portfolio companies have grown during these partnerships.
“Now more than ever, founder-led companies need financing partners that offer guidance, expertise, and understanding—not just capital. These are the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms that have founders’ backs when it comes to accelerating growth,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business Media.
The November 2023 issue of Inc. magazine is available online now at https://www.inc.com/magazine and will be on newsstands beginning October 31. To see the complete list, go to: https://www.inc.com/founder-friendly-investors/2023.
