In this deep dive, NVCA spoke to Monica Johnson, Partner & CFO about NGP Capital's global model and portfolio support.

Tell us about your firm. What makes it different?

NGP Capital is a $1B venture firm that operates with a unique model based on several attributes. First, we operate as a single fund with offices in Silicon Valley, Europe and China. This global engagement model enables us to apply global pattern recognition and best practices while accelerating portfolio company expansion into international markets.

We are thesis driven investors and envision a connected, data-first world where everyone and everything will transmit a signal. We invest in companies that leverage data to augment our daily digital lives and transform industries. Our partners average over 25 years of experience with deep domain mobile expertise offering insight into emerging technologies such as 5G and edge cloud networks.

NGP Capital works closely with corporate partners with a proven engagement model developed over fifteen years through our partnership with Nokia. NGP Capital brings the financial focus of an independent investor with the value offered by a strategic partner.

As a growth stage investor, we are data driven. Our proprietary data platform, called Q, monitors over 700,000 companies globally helping us identify high potential companies early.

As the Operating Partner & CFO, I particularly enjoy working with our companies on scale: we support the build-out of finance teams, share cultural best practices and drive a cross-portfolio view on helping our companies win.
