Annual Roundup of Private Investors Once Again Honors this Healthcare Investor for its Success Backing Entrepreneurs

MINNEAPOLIS — For the second consecutive year, TT Capital Partners (TTCP), has been named to Inc.’s Founder-Friendly Investors list. The annual list honors private equity, venture capital, and debt firms successfully backing entrepreneurs, based on a survey of entrepreneurs who have sold to private investors. TTCP is one of only 11 healthcare-focused firms and one of only two Minnesota-based companies to be included.

“Receiving this recognition once again is very gratifying as building deep and enduring partnerships is core to who we are,” said Dawn Owens, TTCP’s CEO. “TTCP invests in businesses making a positive impact on the performance of our healthcare system. We bring a powerful blend of capital, market insights, expert resources and an operating program specifically calibrated to their needs, unlocking growth and potential.”

“In my experience, TT Capital Partners is unique in both the resources they provide and how they collaborate and partner,” said Kim Phan, founder and CEO of CareConnectMD (CCMD), a value-based care enablement company, improving care and quality of life for fragile and medically complex patients. “In the last 18 months, our business grew by more than 100 percent. TTCP’s experience in value-based care, their access to talent, and their operating expertise were invaluable—helping CCMD rapidly scale our business to serve healthcare providers and their patients across the country.”

This year, Inc.’s Founder-Friendly List recognizes 218 firms that remain actively involved with the businesses they invest in, firms that have earned the trust of the entrepreneurs they support to help drive growth. To compile the list, Inc. went straight to the source: entrepreneurs who have sold their businesses and shared their experiences partnering with private equity, venture capital, and debt firms.

Introduced in 2019, the Founder-Friendly Investors list has established itself as one of Inc.’s most resourceful franchises. It has become a go-to guide for entrepreneurs who want to grow their companies while retaining an ownership stake. To see the complete 2023 list, go to
