Jon Gray on BXG and the Opportunity in Growth Equity

“We’re committed to being great partners to successful entrepreneurs and taking their businesses to the next level.”

For the last 35 years, Blackstone has been partnering with great companies to help them reach their potential. With Blackstone Growth (BXG), our growth equity platform established in 2019, we’re applying our scale and resources to help entrepreneurs as they build market-leading businesses.

In a new video, Blackstone President Jon Gray describes how the firm’s scale, expertise and global reach allow BXG to offer successful young companies much more than just capital. Our large team of operating professionals can help companies scale efficiently and navigate the obstacles that often accompany  rapid growth. And access to Blackstone’s 200+ portfolio companies can serve as a valuable network for businesses looking to expand across industries and geographies.

Blackstone Growth’s strategy is a natural fit with the firm’s long-standing investment approach: focusing on high-conviction themes in faster-growing parts of the economy. “Entrepreneurs’ ability to anticipate what consumers and businesses want is hugely helpful to Blackstone,” says Gray. “The future for this business is extraordinarily bright.”
