Miami, Florida, October 31, 2023 – Inc. today announced its 2023 Founder-Friendly Investors list, honoring the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms with the best track records of success backing entrepreneurs.
The final list recognizes 218 firms that remain actively involved with the businesses they invest in, and that have earned the trust of the entrepreneurs they support to help drive growth.
“Now more than ever, founder-led companies need financing partners that offer guidance, expertise, and understanding—not just capital. These are the private equity, venture capital, and debt firms that have founders’ backs when it comes to accelerating growth,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business Media.
Boyne Capital is thrilled to be named on Inc.’s List of Founder-Friendly Investors for the 4th year in a row. Boyne forges lasting and collaborative relationships with companies whose founders and families are still deeply involved in growing their businesses. Boyne’s commitment to being hands-on, selective, diligent, and patient has led to successful investments across a broad range of industries.
“We’re helping entrepreneurs unlock growth levers and innovate their operations by introducing them to new tools, resources, and practices,” says Derek McDowell, Founder and Managing Partner of Boyne Capital.

To compile the list, Inc. went straight to the source: entrepreneurs who have sold to private equity and venture capital firms. Founders filled out a questionnaire about their experiences partnering with private equity, venture capital, and debt firms and shared data on how their portfolio companies have grown during these partnerships.
