“Thanks. It’s simply one more step of building this company. We are at step three of seven.” That was Patrick Morley’s terse response to my congratulations text on our impending IPO. This wasn’t a fake platitude; it’s the core of Patrick and Carbon Black.
Carbon Black is joining the ranks of the less than one percent of venture-backed companies that make it to this milestone. This is big not only for their employees and their families, but also for the region and the new startups that will branch from the company’s DNA.
Building companies to IPO is part of our ethos at Accomplice. Our patient capital approach is suited for long, arduous journeys where resilience to adversity is part of a company’s genetic makeup. We’re here if you want to build big, beautiful, and sustainable companies that matter.
