Targeting growth equity investments in highly innovative, mid-late stage technology companies
New technologies are enabling innovative businesses to grow faster than ever before. During their hyper-growth phase, many prefer to remain private for longer, scaling faster while staying under the radar of competitors. As these businesses mature, many seek funding from investors with private and public market capabilities and demonstrated track records of long-term investing such as Sands Capital.
This investment strategy is executed by Sands Capital Ventures, LLC, an affiliate of Sands Capital Management, LLC. Sands Capital Management is the investment adviser that provides Sands Capital’s Public Growth investment strategies. Sands Capital Management seeks to adhere to the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) when reporting its investment performance results; however, Sands Capital Ventures does not.
