What is growth equity?

A growth equity investment allows you to focus your investment on scaling technologies with proven revenue models and product-market fits. This generally represents a lower risk strategy versus early-stage venture capital investing, as the technology is proven and the companies have obtained a sizable client base (typically >10m sales).

For investors, it can be a great way to increase the impact of your capital and diversify.

How do you get started and what do you need to know before doing so?

Sit down with our Jacqueline van den Ende, Co-founder and CEO, and Kevin Bone, Partner at Lightrock, to discuss and answer just that!


Kevin Bone

Kevin believes the alignment of world-class, purpose-driven entrepreneurs and supportive capital is essential to creating the world we want to live in. He joined Lightrock after more than twenty years in technology, principally as an investor across growth and venture stages globally, but previously in CEO roles leading restructurings and turnarounds of three businesses, as an investment banker and as a consultant.

Lightrock

Since 2009, Lightrock has invested in companies that pursue scalable and tech-driven business models around the key impact themes of people, planet, and productivity/tech for good.

Investments into private equity are speculative and risky. The value of investments can vary over time. Investments into private equity have a long horizon (exceeding 10 years) with limited liquidity. If you cannot afford to potentially lose your full investment, it is best not to invest. Past performance does not guarantee future returns. Investing in a private equity fund is not comparable to a deposit with a bank.
