Partnership

We don’t work from a one-size-fits-all formula — we take a unique approach with each opportunity because each of our portfolio companies has unique needs. We take the idea of partnership seriously and define our success by the success of our portfolio companies. You run your company; we’re here to help you achieve your goals.

Growth

GHP is growth-oriented and committed to building businesses over the long term. In fact, 72% of our deals have been executed without debt to maximize your flexibility to make tangible investments. Sustaining high organic growth rates is a science, and we have the experience and expertise to support your company as you scale.

Expertise

We have deep knowledge about the sectors and businesses in which we invest. That’s why CEOs trust us to develop creative growth strategies for their companies. One of our CEOs said, “Although I had met dozens of investment firms, Great Hill… was the most knowledgeable investor in the industry that I had encountered.”
