Jeffrey Bunder, Global Private Equity Leader at EY speaks with Privcap about the challenges growth companies face and about EY’s history working with growth companies.

Privcap:  Please discuss EY’s history of working with growth-stage companies

Jeffrey Bunder, EY: We’ve had a long history. Some of the household names now that are public, well-established companies were formerly small-growth businesses that we’ve serviced all long the spectrum of growth. And it’s certainly an area that we focused on. We call it an entrepreneurship.

It’s a focus on working alongside businesses as they look to grow and need that level of assistance and support and advice. We’ve been there for these companies and worked alongside these companies. It’s pretty fulfilling, because you end up seeing a business that may have started in someone’s garage that ultimately, over a number years, has moved to become a major player in a market, achieved public-company status. Working alongside those companies is something we value tremendously.

Privcap: What unique challenges do growth-stage companies face?

Bunder: Companies that are in the growth stage are perpetually changing. What we’ve seen historically is these companies are not necessarily best in class in terms of governance, best in class in terms of operations or finance, and need assistance.
