An update of the last 90 days on the good people who are building today’s top performing companies whom we are so fortunate to be working with.
In the bright light of an IPO or M&A, the media evangelizes the founders and celebrates the investors. And rightly so. But, what often goes unsaid and overlooked is that each company is filled with "Bernie Carbos" (the Boston Red Sox's game-tying home run hitter who set the stage for Carlton Fisk to step up with his game-winning homer in the 1975 World Series). While we deeply honor those founders with whom we've gotten into business, and those that have steadfastly backed them, it is the legions of team members who hit all of the singles, doubles and triples to make these great milestones possible. They've earned the wealth that now enriches them and their families.

Milestones achieved by the people who are scaling today's top performing companies.
Founders Circle is a growth stage investment firm that invests in the people who are building today's top 1% performing venture-backed start-ups. With over $400M across two funds, Founders Circle provides personal capital, via employee liquidity—to founders, their long-term team members or early financial backers—to help them solve for life’s needs. Founders Circle works by invitation only of management and their boards where we’re asked to structure programs that operate under the company’s complete control and are thoughtfully managed throughout the process. The goal of any employee liquidity program is to orient everyone to continue patiently building the company to and through its’ IPO. more
