Revelstoke Capital Partners Named to Inc.’s 2022 List of Founder-Friendly Investors


DENVER, CO, OCTOBER 5, 2022 Revelstoke Capital Partners (“Revelstoke”), a Denver-based private equity firm focused on investing in healthcare services companies, today announced that it has been named to Inc.’s fourth annual Founder-Friendly Investors list, which honors the private equity and venture capital firms with the best track records of successfully backing entrepreneurs.

The final list recognizes those firms that entrepreneurs collaborate with and trust as they receive the financial support they need to help drive growth. All have successful track records of remaining actively involved with the businesses in which they have invested.

“We are very excited and humbled to once again be recognized as one of the most founder-friendly investors by Inc. Magazine. For the past nine years, Revelstoke has been committed to building a reputation and a private equity investment model that supports founder-led businesses,” said Simon Bachleda, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Revelstoke. “We pride ourselves on fostering a strong sense of collaboration and partnership with our management teams as we seek to grow our businesses and create value. This focus has resulted in Revelstoke investing in 169 investments since 2013, most of which have been with founder-led businesses.”

“Fully investing in an entrepreneur, and their innovative vision, involves far more than the financial investment. By developing relationships with and supporting entrepreneurs for the long-term, these private equity firms are more than investors, they’re partners,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. media.

To compile the list, Inc. went straight to the source: entrepreneurs who have sold to private equity and venture capital firms. Founders filled out a questionnaire about their experiences partnering with private equity and venture capital firms and shared data on how their portfolio companies have grown during these partnerships.
