Great Hill and Growth Team Host Inaugural Growth Summit in Nashville
Great Hill Partners and its Growth Team recently held its inaugural Growth Summit in Nashville. With recent rapid technological advancements, including AI, upending the business world, the Summit aimed to help business leaders share best practices, form lasting connections, and access the most innovative experts from our portfolio and beyond on topics ranging from sustainable growth and customer success to data modernization and practical applications of AI.
The Summit brought together GTM, technology and product leaders to discuss the latest developments in AI and the interlock between sales, marketing, product and strategy. Featured speakers included our Growth Team, CTOs of our portfolio companies TodayTix, Vatica, Pareto, Bombas and Terminus and GTM leaders of Auvik, Blue Ridge, Intapp, Vatica, and Quantum Health. Participants also heard from other industry experts in areas ranging from AI to freestyle skiing, including:

In addition to attending roundtable conversations led by industry experts, participants also had the chance to engage in peer-to-peer learning and discuss real issues, shared challenges and key growth tactics in an open environment.
It was rewarding to gather with leaders of our portfolio companies in-person and take the time to share knowledge and best practices to drive our collective growth. In today’s complex landscape, our Growth Team’s work is more important than ever in supporting our portfolio companies’ continued expansion and success. We’re grateful for the wonderful group of business leaders who took the time to attend.
