GS Growth

Equity Investments into High-Growth Companies

We seek to partner with visionary founders and CEOs to build enduring, category-defining businesses by harnessing the global network and deep industry expertise of Goldman Sachs.

As part of the Merchant Banking Division, GS Growth is the dedicated growth equity team within Goldman Sachs, with over 25 years of investing history. 

As announced in June 2019, a number of the investing groups across the firm (Goldman Sachs Growth Equity, Principal Strategic Investments, and Private Capital Investing) have combined to form the GS Growth team.

Our Investment Strategy

The team targets investments of $20-250 million into high-growth companies with the following characteristics:

  • Compelling market opportunity
  • Sustainable competitive advantage through technology, product or process
  • Product / market fit
  • Solid unit economics
  • Referenceable customer base
  • Proven management team

We have the flexibility to invest via either minority or control transactions. 

Advantages of Partnering with GS Growth

In addition to working with an investing team with 25+ years of experience, our portfolio companies have access to the broad range of resources offered by Goldman Sachs, including:

  • Global network of client relationships, senior executives (including executives at other MBD portfolio companies and Goldman's internal IT organization), and board directors
  • Access to market insights and sophisticated financial advice
  • Availability of additional resources and capital to enable continued growth, acquisitions, or geographic expansion
