Revolution Growth Key Developments

Revolution Seeks Investments

Revolution Growth is seeking to invest in three sectors with a new $525 million fund. Donn Davis, Managing Partner of Revolution Growth, pointed out food, data and the education sectors, where they are interested in investing.

Revolution Growth Announces New $525 Million 'Revolution Growth III' Investment Fund

Revolution Growth announced its new $525 million 'Revolution Growth III' investment fund. Led by proven entrepreneurs, business builders and investors Steve Case, Donn Davis and Ted Leonsis, the new fund will build upon the efforts of the previous Revolution Growth fund of $450 million, launched in 2011. The new fund will invest 'speed-up' capital in businesses outside of Silicon Valley that are leveraging technology and new models to disrupt existing, multi-billion dollar industries. Revolution Growth III will be highly selective, echoing past Growth funds, which have made just three to four investments a year, typically investing $25-50 million in each situation. This concentrated approach enables the firm’s partners to actively assist the companies they back, which are taking on some of the economy’s sectors including health care, education, transportation, energy, financial services, food and government services. This includes companies like Revolution Foods, Bedrock Manufacturing (Shinola and Filson), Optoro, CustomInk, Handy and sweetgreen, all investments from the previous Revolution Growth fund.
