Public Markets

Providing Liquidity

Harvest Growth Capital provides liquidity for founders, executives, employees, angel investors, venture capital firms, and other equity holders in private companies.

We have completed over 100 liquidity transactions across a variety of high growth sectors. These transactions provided liquidity to private company shareholders and require discretion, therefore the current investment portfolio is not publicly disclosed. A sampling of previous investments by Harvest Growth Capital include: HomeAway (IPO; later acquired by Expedia), ExactTarget (IPO; later acquired by Salesforce), AppDynamics (acquired by Cisco), MongoDB (IPO), Apptio (IPO), Demand Media (IPO), Trulia (IPO; later acquired by Zillow), OPower (IPO; later acquired by Oracle), TargusInfo (acquired by NeuStar), MedeAnalytics (acquired by Thoma Bravo), among many others.

We focus on completing these liquidity transactions with minimal distraction and involvement from the company itself and handle all information in strict confidence.

Our experience, reputation, resources, and knowledge allow us to move through the transaction process quickly – from company evaluation, to the issuance of a Letter of Intent, through final due diligence, legal document preparation, and deal consummation.
