Our Impact By The Numbers
Jobs created figure was derived by using a combination of Pitchbook, LinkedIn, and various public data sources to determine the number of employees at Greenspring’s underlying portfolio companies (since inception) at the time of funding and at the time of Greenspring’s exit. Unknown company counts were extrapolated upon by extracting the median initial/final company counts for companies of the same subsector.
