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.

Entrepreneurial Mindset

Entrepreneurship is in our DNA. An Associate is expected to be as creative and thoughtful as the entrepreneurs we back, to solve complex problems and to identify the next generation of business leaders. Associates are trusted to be ambassadors for Summit around the world – I’ve traveled to Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, Helsinki and Istanbul in the last six months alone."

Teamwork

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.”

Sophia Popova Vice President

Service

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

Entrepreneurial Mindset

At Summit, we’re encouraged to let our intellectual curiosity drive us. Teams are lean and Associates play an integral role. Our senior members value our ideas on interesting industries and companies – and they rely on our character, judgement and work ethic to build strong relationships with entrepreneurs. I do so much more than crunching numbers – every day, I’m applying the EQ that will help me to be successful in any job.”

Angela Ha Associate

Tenacity

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

Integrity

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."

Michael Medici Managing Director
