Founded in 1996, Generation Partners is a private equity firm with $345 million of capital currently under management. Generation provides equity capital to growth companies through buyout and growth equity investments. Over the past 20 years, the firmâ€™s principals have invested in over 50 companies and have generated a gross internal rate of return exceeding 50% per annum over this period.
Generation was founded to create a more â€œforward-lookingâ€ investment firm by combining extensive experience in growth-oriented private equity investments with information technology expertise. This remains the foundation of our firm as we seek out businesses that are using technology to lead change in their industries.
They target equity investments of $10 to $30 million and pursue both majority and minority equity positions in growth companies at various stages of development. They are long-term investors and have been involved in some of their companies for more than 10 years.
