Boston, MA – WestView Capital Partners (“WestView”), a Boston-based growth equity firm, was named in Inc.’s 2023 Founder-Friendly Investor list for the fourth consecutive year. For the 2023 Founder-Friendly Investor list, which honors the most founder-friendly private equity and venture capital firms in the country, Inc. again gathered data directly from entrepreneurs who have partnered with investors to gauge their opinions on the most founder-friendly firms. Founders responded to questionnaires and interview questions about their experiences partnering with private equity firms and offered insight into how their businesses have performed through these partnerships.

He added “we are committed to supporting entrepreneurs and their visions by being a helpful, yet unintrusive, partner in their journey.” Jonathan Hunnicutt, also a Managing Partner, added “we are privileged to have worked with so many founders over nearly 20 years and proud that their direct input led to us being included on this list. WestView was founded with the goal of building longstanding, supportive relationships with founders, and our inclusion for a fourth consecutive year is a testament to that founding principle.”
