Martis Capital Named to Inc.’s 2022 List of Founder-Friendly Investors
Annual roundup highlights the private equity and venture capital firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs
October 5, 2022 – Martis Capital today announced that it was named in Inc.’s 2022 Founder-Friendly Investors list, honoring the private equity and venture capital firms with the best track records 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 184 investment firms selected for this designation, Martis was one of only nine healthcare exclusive private equity firms named among this year’s honorees, as well as being one of the three healthcare exclusive firms to be honored for the 2nd consecutive year.
“We are honored to be recognized by Inc. as a Founder-Friendly Investor for a 2nd consecutive year,” said Mario Moreno, Managing Partner of Martis Capital. “We seek to partner with founder-led healthcare organizations that share our vision for improved patient care, compliance, and costs. We believe honesty, transparency, and reliability towards founders and their teams are the cornerstones of a successful investment partnership, and are grateful for all our founder partners, past and present, who have placed their trust in us. We look forward to more partnerships to come.”
“We chose to unite with Martis given their experience as a trusted partner for businesses seeking to increase access to quality care”, said Jon Harol, Founder and President of current Martis portfolio company, Lighthouse Lab Services. “Their collaboration has been critical to our continued growth, and we congratulate them on this well-deserved recognition”, said Mark Roth, CEO of Lighthouse.
“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.
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.
