Detailed Description


Stripes Group, based in New York City and founded in 2005, is a growth equity firm that makes $10-60 million investments in Internet, SaaS, Software, Healthcare IT and Branded Consumer Products businesses. Our approach to investing is founded on five core principles:

Professional Enthusiasm: We share a passion for building businesses. Our job title might be “investor”, but we view ourselves more as “professional enthusiasts” privileged to help great entrepreneurs achieve their goals.

Brand Building: In today’s world of technology and consumer products companies, strong brands win. We love to help scale strong brands that engender customer loyalty and advocacy.

Operational Focus: Drawing upon deep experience as entrepreneurs, our team lends active support to help build networks, recruit talent, offer M&A advice and support other operational elements critical to growing companies.

Expect Success: There is no numbers game of “hits” and “misses” within our investment strategy. We invest in just a few companies every year and expect each one to succeed. This translates to us providing whatever resources you need to achieve your goals.

Flexible Engagement: How we engage is a function of what entrepreneurs and their teams need. We calibrate our support to make sure we’re part of the solution, not an additional headache.
