Clarity on the Growth Equity Landscape
Hey monkeys, seems to be a severe lack of talk about growth equity on this forum. Was wondering if yall could shed some light on the growth equity landscape (ie. what are the top firms? how are traditional PE firms growth arms viewed in comparison? how many spots do these groups take? do they have analyst spots or only associate? do people commonly transition from IB into GE? PE into GE? if so what groups in IB/PE are good for doing so? what headhunters do these firms use? average comp compared to IB/PE? what is work like at analyst level? what is work like at associate level?)
I've never seen a complete list of firms to research - have only loosely heard of firms like General Atlantic, Insight Partners, CapitalG, ICONIQ which do pure growth and have heard that TPG, KKR, BX, etc. have growth arms but don't know much about them - so any more clarity on the industry and how to break in would be much appreciated.
Hope everyone is staying healthy out there!
