Proven Experience

Lightview Capital’s founders bring a strong mix of both investment and operating experience. As founders of both operating companies and investment firms, they appreciate the effort it takes to start, scale, and drive a business to a successful and meaningful exit. To date, over half of the founders’ 20+ investments in growth companies have led to IPOs or strategic exits yielding a combined enterprise value in excess of $1 billion.
