Our growth equity investments are capital-efficient, emerging market leaders.

Many of our companies were not looking for outside capital, yet partnered with Trident because they believed our sector expertise and strategic support could help them achieve their true growth potential. Today, their partnerships with Trident are paying off and we are looking for new opportunities to help management teams build winning companies.

We seek out later stage companies with proven business models and demonstrated revenue growth in our areas of focus. CEOs like you benefit from our operating experience and rich network of customers, strategic partners and acquirers. With our industry-wide resources, we can help you achieve your goal, whether it’s a high-value strategic sale or an IPO.

Typically, we invest as minority shareholders, but will also acquire control positions where appropriate. Our typical investment is up to $30 million, and we partner with other value-added investors on larger equity opportunities. Although we are based in Silicon Valley, we will invest in the right company anywhere in North America.



Trident’s venture portfolio consists of early leaders in rapidly-growing markets, including Internet, mobile and cloud computing, healthcare IT and IT security.

We are truly immersed in these markets, and our venture entrepreneurs value the former operators and current thought leaders on our team. At Trident, entrepreneurs find a supportive, long-term partner who helps them capitalize on new technologies and market disruptions to build industry-defining companies.

When entrepreneurs like you choose an investment from Trident, you get much more than capital. You get a committed team that will always take your call, get on a plane to support you, and help you close your next partnership, hire or sale. With our sector knowledge and operational experience we:

  • Deliver a rich network of customers and strategic partners
  • Help you build out a world-class executive team
  • Provide strategic and operational guidance from former CEOs in our partnership

If you’re a passionate entrepreneur or CEO looking for investors who are experts in your industry and who thrive on helping to grow companies, we look forward to meeting with you.
