Revelstoke Capital Partners Named to Inc.’s 2023 List of Founder-Friendly Investors


DENVER, CO, November 3, 2023 – Revelstoke Capital Partners (“Revelstoke”), a healthcare-focused private equity firm with $5.6 billion of assets under management, is pleased to announce that it has been named to Inc.’s fifth annual Founder-Friendly Investors list, which honors the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs for the Firm’s third consecutive year.

The final list recognizes 218 firms that remain actively involved with the businesses they invest in, and that have earned the trust of the entrepreneurs they support to help drive growth.

“We are honored to be recognized for the third year in a row as one of the most founder-friendly investors by Inc. Magazine, and we thank the founders and entrepreneurs who have chosen us as their partner,” said Simon Bachleda, Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Revelstoke. “When we partner with a founder, we not only provide capital, but strive to foster a strong sense of collaboration and innovation to support their business long-term. This focus has resulted in Revelstoke completing 186 investments since 2013, most of which have been with founder-led businesses.”

“Now more than ever, founder-led companies need financing partners that offer guidance, expertise, and understanding—not just capital. These are the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms that have founders’ backs when it comes to accelerating growth,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business 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, venture capital, and debt firms and shared data on how their portfolio companies have grown during these partnerships.
