Springboard Growth Capital is an investment partnership supporting visionary entrepreneurs and companies positioned to be market leaders.

We focus on companies at the Series C stage and beyond, with meaningful market traction and business models created with the digital consumer in mind. We leverage an extensive eco-system built by Springboard Enterprises to select and support women entrepreneurs poised to access institutional capital. As an independent sponsor, we can lead or co-invest, and we have the flexibility to “right-size” our investment to meet the needs of the company.
