About Us

Pilot Growth Equity is a unique technology growth equity firm. All of our partners are founders of successful companies, and we understand the needs of technology entrepreneurs. We founded Pilot Growth Equity to bring entrepreneurs a platform to accelerate their growth.

We provide our portfolio companies a combination of world class operating, company building and advisory expertise, as well as global access to private and public sector customers.

As entrepreneurs, we understand the challenges and rewards that come with building your own business. We also understand that there are many choices for growth capital, but that it is important to find the right investors to make a difference for your business.

Governments are the largest technology customers, and their policies, globally and locally, significantly impact technology innovation and adoption. One of the assets we bring to our portfolio companies is our knowledge of the business development and regulatory advisory needs of technology companies and private and public sector customers. Partnering with Pilot Growth provides growth equity, expertise and relationships to help your technology business scale.

Pilot Growth has offices in San Francisco and New York.

Our Culture

Pilot Growth Equity is a partnership built upon the Co‑Founders' long term relationships, shared values and entrepreneurial spirit. We are proud to work with one another and the talented and inspiring management teams with whom we partner.

Our partnership is built upon the following guiding principles:


Our Co‑Founders have spent their careers building technology businesses. We are passionate about supporting companies that are solving difficult problems and business needs. We stand shoulder to shoulder with our portfolio companies to help them build their businesses.


We think big. We are dedicated to solving hard and valuable problems and helping create companies that improve businesses, peoples’ lives and the world.


We are lifelong learners. We share our individual and collective experiences to learn from each other, our employees and all those with whom we interact.


We work together, and with our portfolio companies, as partners who can count on each other to bring the best of ourselves and our individual experiences to help each other reach the best outcomes. We succeed or fail together.


We value and are open to all points of view, especially ones that challenge our own, and we foster diversity and mutual respect in our partnership, management teams and boards.


We lead by example and conduct ourselves with the highest professional and ethical standards.


We live up to our commitments. We take ownership of our decisions and stand behind them, taking credit for successes and learning lessons from failures.


We are not intimidated by challenges or discouraged by naysayers. We find creative solutions to the hardest problems. We are driven to succeed and foster the success of those around us. We are passionate about achieving nothing less than excellence.


The work we do impacts not only our team, but our communities and the world. We are generous with our time, experiences, energy and resources to help our communities.


We love what we do.
