57 Stars is an experienced investor in private equity and venture capital in markets primarily outside of the United States and Western Europe. The firm was founded on the belief that there was untapped investment potential with compelling risk adjusted returns, all the while contributing to the sustainable growth of the markets, communities, and countries in which we invest. The co-founders and senior management of the firm bring extensive experience sourcing and investing in private capital opportunities in both developed and emerging markets across alternative asset classes of growth equity, venture capital, buyout, real estate, infrastructure, secondaries, special situations, and co-investments. 57 Stars invests through private equity and venture capital fund partnerships, co-investments and secondary acquisitions in high-growth sectors of the global economy that are driven by secular tailwinds, disruptive forces and technological innovation, adaption, and adoption. 57 Stars investment strategy applies a thematic investment approach, identifying powerful macro-level trends and sourcing investments that stand to benefit from the materialization of those trends in key economic sectors. In addition, the firm has pursued structured transactions, co-investments with high upside potential, and opportunistic secondaries to create a more resilient portfolio with an aim to reduce J-curve.
