Who We Are

Since 2018, Third500 clients have raised $1.2 billion, created $3.2 billion in investment gains and generated 45% IRR after increasing value to their founders by 330%.
From Chicago to Shanghai, Austin to Amsterdam, Boston to Basel, Singapore to Sandhill, Third500 clients have unique standing
in the fastest growing, most established and dynamic investment markets around the world.

What is

Emerging Growth?

Among the world’s largest and most consequential investment markets, the Emerging Growth segment comprises all companies with valuations between $50 and $500 million.

Over the past 10 years, the Emerging Growth segment has attracted $645 billion in investments while generating 27% annualized returns.  The segment now accounts for 67% of all VC investment and 44% of all exit events.

However, Emerging Growth is not a priority for traditional market participants. For strategic buyers and growth equity investors, the Emerging Growth segment is considered “too early.” For NASDAQ investors, Emerging Growth is “too small.” For VCs, it is “too late.” For investment banks, the “fees aren’t big enough.”

Third500 understands that Emerging Growth is the heart of global innovation, the center of human achievement, economic advancement, job creation, wealth expansion, environmental action and social progress. Because of that, we built our entire firm around it.
