RLH Equity Partners Named to Inc.’s List of Founder-Friendly Investors for the Second Consecutive Year

RLH Equity Partners is proud to be included in Inc. Magazine’s 2022 Founder-Friendly Investors list.  According to Inc., the list recognizes firms that serve as a partner that entrepreneurs can trust and collaborate with, while receiving the financial support they need to help accelerate growth.

“Fully investing in an entrepreneur and their innovative vision involves far more than the financial investment. By developing relationships with and supporting entrepreneurs for the long-term, these private equity firms are more than investors, they’re partners,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. media.

“We’re honored that RLH earned a place on the Founder-Friendly Investors list for the second year in a row,” said Kevin Cantrell and Ryan Smiley, Managing Directors of RLH.  They added, “This recognition is especially valuable because it is based upon detailed information provided by entrepreneurs about their experiences partnering with private equity firms.  We believe it reflects RLH’s multi-decade commitment to a servant-leadership approach to collaborating with our portfolio companies.  And it is a wonderful complement to the more than two dozen awards that our portfolio companies have earned in the past five years alone as ‘best places to work’ in their industry or geographical area.”
