Our mission is to be a world-class tech investment franchise.

We back strong teams leading innovative companies so that we can build the next generation of tech leaders. We believe we are the partner of choice for management teams who have the ambition and talent to build market shaping, thriving, unstoppable businesses.

We’re looking for companies with a large market opportunity, but that’s not enough.

We are attracted to companies pursuing large markets and led by ambitious teams, but those factors alone won’t meet our aspirations. In addition, we need a management team with a maniacal focus on building products that deliver differentiated value to customers. That is how you build a business for the long term.

We believe Advent’s culture is unique.

We are servant-leaders. We are collaborative and consensus-oriented in how we approach our management teams, our limited partners, and our people. Our team consists of high-integrity, low-ego talented people who are passionate about building great businesses.

Cybersecurity is one of the existential threats of our time.

Technology permeates the fabric of our governments, our enterprises, and our personal lives. Cyber criminals constantly threaten this fabric. Our mission is to fund the companies that arm the cyber war fighters. We owe those entrepreneurs, CEOs, and management teams a tremendous amount of respect and gratitude, and I’m privileged to be able to help a few of them on their mission.
