The firm invests from $10 million to $50 million of equity per transaction and is typically the first institutional investor in its portfolio companies.

“We are very pleased to announce the final closing of Fund VIII. We greatly appreciate the confidence and trust of our investors,” said Mr. Wade. “This successful fundraising highlights our investors’ enthusiasm for the strength of our team, our differentiated investment strategy and the compelling market opportunity.”

Since its founding in 1986, M/C Partners has invested over $2.2 billion of capital into nearly 100 companies.
