Prospect Partners Makes Inc. List of Top Founder-Friendly PE Firms


CHICAGO, Ill.—July 10, 2019: Prospect Partners, LLC, a leading private equity firm investing in smaller lower-middle-market companies, has been named one of the best private equity firms for entrepreneurs by Inc. magazine.

To compile its Top-50 list of founder-friendly PE firms, which appears in the magazine's July/August 2019 issue, Inc. identified firms that invest in founder-led companies, gathered portfolio growth data, and asked the entrepreneurs themselves about their experiences. Inc.'s list "highlights shops that treat entrepreneurs as partners and operators — rather than as part of the furniture."

"We're thrilled Inc. has recognized our long track record as a founder-friendly private equity firm," said Erik Maurer, Principal, and a founding member of the Prospect Partners' team. "Partnership has been a core operating value since our inception in 1998."

"We strive to build outstanding relationships with entrepreneurs as we work together to build small companies into leading middle-market businesses," Maurer continued. "We're upfront, trustworthy, passionate about our portfolio companies, and committed to helping founders surpass their own expectations. We are so thankful to all of them for helping us achieve such outstanding results over the past 21 years."
