Creating the future
At 777 Partners, we are transformers, not conformers. And we're always looking for new ideas and the people to move them.
We knew to disrupt our own industry and the industry verticals we serve we couldn’t rely on the conventional ideas or people. We strive to create a unique environment that provides a holistic view of the world, embracing innovation, and cultivating professional development and personal growth. At 777 Partners, we are committed to build long-term careers by investing in our team.
Our teams consist of entrepreneurs and professionals with varied backgrounds and perspectives that strengthen our team and help our investment decisions.

When joining our team, you are provided the tools and opportunities for rapid career progression while attaining a 360-degree, holistic view of the world vs the more siloed experience from other traditional PE or Investment Banking firms.
