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

November 1st, 2023


Strives to continue its legacy of supporting and partnering with family-owned, entrepreneurial businesses

Graham Partners is pleased to announce its inclusion in Inc.’s 2023 list of “Founder-Friendly Investors” for the third consecutive year. This year, Inc.’s list honors private equity firms, venture capital firms, and lenders (a new addition in 2023) that are committed to partnering with entrepreneurs. Graham Partners is grateful to be included again this year.

The origins of Graham Partners, part of The Graham Group, and our family industrial heritage date back to 1960 in a central Pennsylvania farmhouse basement where entrepreneur Donald C. Graham, Steve Graham’s father, founded a design engineering firm, which ultimately spawned what Graham believes to be three successful advanced manufacturing businesses. Steve Graham, CEO of Graham Partners, said, “We recognize the importance of partnering with technology-forward entrepreneurs and businesses dedicated to pioneering innovation within advanced manufacturing, and we strive to uphold Don Graham’s entrepreneurial essence in all aspects 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.
