Martis Capital today announced that it was named in Inc.’s 2021 Founder-Friendly Investors list, honoring private equity and venture capital firms with consistent track record of success backing entrepreneurs.  Martis’ inclusion affirms our position as an aligned investment partner specifically to founders and management teams of middle-market healthcare companies looking to scale their businesses. Additionally, we are excited to note that out of 146 investment firms selected for this designation, Martis was one of only four healthcare exclusive private equity firms named among this year’s honorees.

“We are honored to be recognized by Inc. as a Founder-Friendly Investor,” said Barry Uphoff, Managing and Founding Partner of Martis Capital. “Working with founders to transform healthcare is what we have endeavored to do since our inception over a decade ago. Honesty, reliability, and transparency are the cornerstones for making it easy for founders to initiate a partnership with us. We then work closely with founders and their teams to understand their unique needs and how we can help them achieve their goals. A most sincere congratulations to our team at Martis and an enthusiastic thank you to all of our founder partners for trusting us with the opportunity to help them advance their businesses and transform the healthcare industry.”

“Supporting an entrepreneur’s vision and driving growth is more than just a financial investment. It’s about building a relationship and supporting the founders beyond that initial year,” noted Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. media.

Introduced in 2019, the Founder-Friendly Private Equity Firms list quickly established itself as one of Inc.’s most resourceful franchises. It has become a go-to guide for entrepreneurs who want to grow their companies while retaining a meaningful ownership stake. As part of the evaluation process, Inc. interviewed founders to learn about their experiences and collect data on how their companies have grown as a result of these partnerships.
