The Summit Experience

Like the entrepreneurs with whom we partner, we are constantly seeking new and creative ways to innovate and grow. Above all else, we believe in the power of the Summit Partners Network – and the integrity, teamwork, entrepreneurial mindset and commitment to service that define its members.

In joining the Summit team, I hadn’t initially appreciated that I’d also be joining a team of stellar operators across Summit’s portfolio and extended network. It’s incredibly powerful to work on a team that includes entrepreneurs who are scaling category-leading companies around the world.”

Entrepreneurial Mindset

It's easy to be passionate about working at Summit. Associates have an incredible opportunity to develop a broad skillset. We take an active role in building relationships with key industry stakeholders, identifying new high-growth companies, and helping to execute high priority opportunities within our teams. And importantly, Summit leadership is committed to supporting the development of Associates' investing acumen.”

A commitment to service permeates the Summit culture – both in terms of service to our entrepreneurs and investors as well as through active involvement in the community. I’m incredibly proud of the level of participation I see across our team – from individuals mentoring at-risk high school students to the groups we have running the Boston Marathon or riding the Pan-Mass Challenge year after year."

John Carroll Managing Director


Tenacity is what sets apart great entrepreneurs and investors. Vision and ideas can get you so far, but a tenacious spirit and execution drives results. Summit’s culture is rooted in a tenacity that fuels our approach: we work hard to identify and partner with great companies and we’re tireless in our efforts to support their growth."

Pete Francis Managing Director


Summit is very focused on data-driven decision-making and operating with an incredible level of integrity across the board. Whether we’re having discussions internally about a new investment or we’re helping a management team execute a plan, it all comes back to doing what we believe is right based on what the data is showing us."
