Graham Partners Named to Inc.’s Founder-Friendly Investors List for Second Consecutive Year

October 7th, 2022


Graham Partners is pleased to share that it has been named to Inc.’s 2022 list of “Founder-Friendly Investors” for the second consecutive year. Inc.’s list honors private equity and venture capital firms with strong track records of success backing entrepreneurs, and Graham Partners is grateful to be included again this year.

The origins of The Graham Group and our family industrial heritage date back to a central Pennsylvania farmhouse basement where entrepreneur Donald C. Graham, Steve Graham’s father, founded a design engineering firm in 1960, which ultimately spawned three successful advanced manufacturing businesses. At Graham Partners, we see the value in partnering with technology-driven entrepreneurs and businesses who are focused on innovation, and we strive to continue to embody Don Graham’s entrepreneurial spirit in every aspect of our business.

To compile their list, Inc. asked founders to detail their experiences partnering with private equity and venture capital firms. To see the full list of firms that received Inc.’s stamp of approval, click the link below.
