Revolution Growth invests in companies that can change the world. What we do is unique and different. We are focused. Our sweet spot is on technology-enabled businesses that empower consumers and disrupt existing, multi-billion dollar industries. We invest in "speed-ups" –helping companies take ideas from niche to mass and scale to capitalize on huge market opportunities. We are highly selective - typically investing in only two or three new companies per year. We are very hands-on and a true partner, working relentlessly with management teams, over a long period of time, to help build their businesses.
Steve Case, Ted Leonsis, and Donn Davis lead Revolution Growth. We work collaboratively on each Revolution Growth company, bringing our unique skills, complementary talents, and personal commitment to partnering with entrepreneurs in all major facets of business-building. We have all been in the trenches as CEOs ourselves, and recognize that the best CEOs and entrepreneurs want to be helped and challenged, but not second guessed.
We look to attack existing, multi-billion dollar markets ripe for disruption with innovative companies. We have found we are most effective when we are the lead and largest investor. We expect that our typical investment will be $25 – 50 million, which will generally enable us to be the largest and most influential investor. Our work really starts once we make an investment - we go all-in with our time and reputations, and understand that iconic companies take time to flourish. We are flexible in how we structure our investments, and work to create custom solutions that are a win for everyone involved. We believe great ideas come from all over, and focus our investments outside of California, aiming to be the preferred partner east of the Mississippi.
Our approach is a throwback to the pioneering days of venture capital. It was about smaller funds, with fewer deals, and real hands-on collaboration between the name partners and the entrepreneurs they backed. We have had great success building great companies, and we are passionate about helping the next generation of entrepreneurs change the world. We look to do a few things big and well - and build lasting billion dollar companies.
