As we turn the final page of 2023 and prepare to celebrate 20 years of Partners for Growth in 2024, I reflect on a year that was a testament to PFG’s commitment to growing innovation worldwide. I am immensely proud of what we have accomplished this past year. As we stand on the cusp of our 20th anniversary, we are reminded of our journey from a pioneering idea to a global force in the venture lending landscape. Our achievements are not just measured in the number of companies or countries in which we’ve invested or offices we’ve opened but in the lasting impact we’ve made on the technology sector worldwide. Our commitment to empowering entrepreneurs and embracing innovation remains stronger than ever. In 2024, as we celebrate this significant milestone, we look forward to forging new paths in the ever-evolving world of technology. We will continue going where the entrepreneurs are to be their partners for growth.
Allow me to share some key highlights, representing a few of the tangible outcomes delivered by our team’s dedication to our mission to finance innovation globally.
