We partner with next generation leaders to create global scale.
We believe the development of human capital is the defining issue of the 21st century
In an era of dramatic technological progress, where knowledge workers must continuously adapt to a changing environment, where children must be educated for jobs that don’t yet exist, unlocking human potential — from pre-K through lifelong learning, from the school to the enterprise — is the challenge and opportunity facing every nation on earth.
We founded Exceed Capital to partner with the entrepreneurs and companies that are rising to meet this challenge. We invest in growth stage companies in the human capital sector, committing our time, network and capital to accelerate our portfolio companies’ international expansion and enabling them to achieve enduring market leadership.

A Global Network
We believe that the companies who aspire to transform their industry and become true category leaders are looking to serve global markets sooner than ever. Our team is deeply connected to education, media and technology leaders in both the public and private sectors in every region of the world. Our goal is to help accelerate global growth for our portfolio companies and help them access new markets with lower cost and entry barriers.
We bring more than capital. Our team has worked closely with the management teams of some of the most important companies in the sector, serving as thought partners and advising them in their critical strategic and growth priorities. We seek to bring our transaction capabilities, capital markets experiences and strategic thinking to serve every company we invest in.
Our approach is centered on long-term partnerships. We focus on company building, not transacting, and we seek like-minded companies and entrepreneurs who have a long-term vision for their industry and focus on creating lasting enterprises. Our advisory board is comprised of some of the most successful CEOs and investors in their industries, and who seek to apply their insights and networks to help grow the next generation of transformative companies.
