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, most 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.”

Diversity & Inclusion Policy

At Great Hill Partners we partner with high growth, innovative companies that disrupt and change their markets. In our experience, great ideas come from a varied set of backgrounds, beliefs and life journeys. We are committed to doing more to help cultivate an environment that advances Diversity and Inclusion in business, in society and within our firm. We are stronger as a team when individuals are valued, empowered to action and respected for their individual and team contributions. We understand that an inclusive culture is essential to enable us to attract, develop, and retain exceptional talent.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion extends beyond GHP’s walls. We are collaborating with our portfolio companies to promote multicultural workplace environments that lead to better decision-making, broaden our opportunities and drive innovative thinking. Our efforts to achieve Diversity and Inclusion include specific plans and goals for our firm and partner companies. We will measure our results, adjust our strategies and hold ourselves accountable as we work towards a more diverse workforce and inclusive culture.
