GrowthCap Extends Private Equity Platform to Ultra High Net Worth Individuals and Adds Key Team Member

NEW YORK, April 17, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- GrowthCap LLC announced today that it has extended its private equity platform to include investment opportunities for ultra high net worth individuals.  "We saw a large gap in the private investment market." said GrowthCap CEO RJ Lumba.  "The market offers multiple attractive avenues for individuals to invest in seed stage or angel opportunities, but there are very limited means for individuals to access direct investments in established, cash-flowing private enterprises, known as growth equity investments."

Through GrowthCap, individual investors can now invest in a variety of highly-curated private companies.  GrowthCap performs thorough due diligence prior to approving a company for its platform.  "We take deal quality very seriously.  We are intensely focused on providing investors with opportunities to earn outsized returns within a defined three-to-five year time frame," says Lumba.  Companies are evaluated based on management team track record, historical financial performance, projected growth, market dynamics, competitive advantages, and operational strength among other key metrics. 

GrowthCap, which launched in January, has seen strong demand from private company CEOs.  "In our first month, we spoke with over 60 CEOs and evaluated over $800 million worth of transactions.  We will be adding $25M to $35M of live deals to the platform in the next 30 days," says Lumba.  Initial opportunities include one of the fastest growing brands in the health and fitness space (the company's revenues are growing at 22% per month) and a financial research and media company founded by former successful hedge fund managers, amongst others.

Growth equity opportunities have continued to receive increased attention among the investment community at large.  Cambridge Associates recently named it an asset class and calculated returns of 15.6% per annum over the three-year period ending December 2012, which was equivalent to returns earned on leveraged buyouts and materially higher than the 11.4% earned on venture capital investments.

GrowthCap also announces a key addition to its organization.  Jared Talisman joins as Managing Director and to assist in leading deal evaluation, structuring and execution.  He brings over 12 years of transaction experience having worked at top tier firms including North Sea Partners, Lehman Brothers, Credit Suisse and Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette.  In addition, Jason Tagler, a Partner at Camden Partners, and Gus Warren, a venture partner at FirstMark Capital and COO of Disconnect, have joined as advisory board members.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
