Boston – October 20, 2017 – Cooley advised venture and growth-stage investment firm M33 Growth on the closing of its debut fund, M33 Growth I LP, with a total of $180 million in limited partner capital commitments raised. The team advising M33 Growth was led by venture capital partner Nicole Peppe.
“M33 Growth was born out of the idea that to truly catapult a business to the next level, it takes not only operational and investment proficiency, but also the empathy of a founding team that has spent years successfully working with bootstrapped companies to accelerate their growth,” said Brian Shortsleeve, co-founder and managing director of M33, in a news release. “Our mission is to fuel the growth of the next great success stories in American business.”
Founded by veterans of renowned investment firms, Boston-based M33 Growth – a name inspired by Mach 33, the speed at which an object reaches escape velocity and breaks out from the gravitational pull of the Earth – will seek to help leaders of successful bootstrapped businesses rapidly achieve scale. The firm will aim to invest in companies in the software, healthcare and services sectors throughout North America.
