Annual roundup highlights the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs
BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nonantum Capital Partners (“Nonantum”) is proud to share that the firm has been named to Inc.’s 2023 Founder-Friendly Investors List, which honors the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs.
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 private equity, venture capital, and debt 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,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business Media.
Nonantum is a private equity firm led by a group of experienced private equity and management executives, formed in 2018 as a spin-out from Charlesbank Capital Partners. The firm invests across North America with a focus on family- and founder-led businesses, corporate carve-outs, and complex situations. The team has decades of investment and operating experience across a broad array of industries including business services, consumer products, and industrials.
Furthermore, the firm’s founding partners grew up in family businesses and understand the value of true partnership. For the majority of the firm’s portfolio, managers favored Nonantum over competing acquirers for reasons other than price.
“We are proud to be consistently selected by management teams for our ‘partnership approach’, in which we leverage our experience in a hands-on manner without micro-managing. Our core values of integrity, humility, and teamwork drive us to invest only where we can partner with management to execute on a shared vision,” says Jon Biotti, Managing Partner of Nonantum.
