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.
As of October 1, 2021, the firm was redefined to be the combination of Sands Capital Management, LLC and Sands Capital Ventures, LLC. The two investment advisers are combined to be one firm for GIPS® purposes and are doing business as Sands Capital. Sands Capital operates as a distinct business organization, retains discretion over the assets between the two registered investment advisers, and has autonomy over the total investment decision making process.
