Helping and Investing In Rising City B2B Founders

First we help.

Then we invest.

You won’t find us at demo days or sifting through pitch decks.
We work alongside founders to help them find product-market fit.
That’s how we source, select and earn our investment opportunities.

“We achieved 250% growth in MRR and GrowthX Capital invested!”

Julius Nyanda, HouseKeys

100% Focused on Product-Market Fit

We take the guesswork out of going to market.

We’ve sequenced every step along the path to product-market fit so that founders know exactly how to systemtically grow revenue.

We’ve built a libary of playbooks and templates to help founders avoid reinventing the wheel and waisting their valuable runway.

We gladly roll up our sleeves and work hard alongside founders to build meaningful relationships and help them achieve real outcomes.

Our Stewardship Pledge

AS AN Innovation Investor

We believe the venture capital community can no longer ignore the ethical and moral issues that arise alongside its investment activities.

The Stewardship Pledge, pioneered by the Kauffman Fellowship, is an attempt to respond to this need.

PROBLEM

The venture capital industry can no longer ignore the ethical and moral issues that arise alongside its investment activities, from power imbalances, lack of inclusion, or conflicts of interest. There is an ethical and moral imperative for a proactive and affirmative approach from the investor community.

ACKNOWLDGEMENT

As innovation investors, we recognize:

  • Our industry of innovation capital has the power to drive both private value creation and sustainable, positive societal transformation;
  • Our purpose is to direct capital and expertise to create shared value by accelerating the pace of innovation through company formation and growth;
  • Our investment decisions affect the well-being of individuals inside and outside of GrowthX, the companies in which we invest, our capital partners, the industries in which we work, and beyond, both today and in the future; and
  • Our behavior must set an example of integrity and mutual respect, eliciting trust and esteem from the multiple stakeholders we serve.

We will remain accountable to our peers and to society for our actions and for upholding these standards.

Pledge #1: Good Faith

We will not advance our own interests at the expense of our investee companies, our capital partners, or society.

Pledge #2: Honesty

We will manage our investments with loyalty and care and we will report the performance and risks of our organization and our investee companies accurately and honestly to our capital partners.

Pledge #3: Trust

We will understand and uphold, in letter and in spirit, the laws and contracts governing our conduct and that of GrowthX and our investee companies, and refrain from corruption, unfair competition, or other business practices harmful to society.

Pledge #4: Integrity

We will recognize the power imbalance inherent in the relationship between investor and entrepreneur, and will not abuse our position, engage in sexual harassment or discrimination, or condone it in the organizations and communities around us.

Pledge #5: Dignity

We will protect the human rights and dignity of all people impacted by GrowthX and our investee companies, and oppose discrimination both within our investee companies and in the process of selecting investments.

Pledge #6: Diversity

We will promote a culture of inclusion, seek out diversity of all types, and foster a sense of belonging among all the organizations and communities in which we work. To further continuing awareness and action, we will participate to the extent of our abilities in open discussion and reporting across our industry as well as encourage others to do the same.

Pledge #7: Posterity

We will develop ourselves, and coach, mentor, and apprentice the next generation of founders and investors.

Pledge #8: Sustainable

We will work with our stakeholders to support sustainable inclusive prosperity and to minimize the negative consequences of our actions to the environment and society.

    Rebecca Eydeland, Mingyian

  • "Before investing in my company I always felt that the interactions with GrowthX were more of a mentor/mentee relationship where they truly wanted to see me succeed and not just for their own economic gains. They are a great team that perfectly balances humanity, the need to create value (for all involved) and unique skills focused on accelerating the growth of promising companies."

    Shannon Eubanks, RxThat

  • "We tripled our revenue in one month during the program and we are on track to do that again this month!"

    Temi Okesanya, Road Aider

  • "GrowthX has been a fantastic partner in growing my business.

I feel lucky to have found such a talented and passionate group and would recommend GrowthX as a partner."
