A friend of mine is thinking about joining a startup whose primary backing is from a PE firm, not VC.

I'm only familiar with the VC-Startup dynamic, esp when it comes to comp.

Does anyone know if that dynamic is different in a significant way if the backing is PE?

It probably won’t really influence their day to day as an employee unless they are joining the C Suite. The only thing I can think would be different is maybe the equity they would receive (esp. restricted/pre-IPO stock). What stage are they in right now?

By they I mean the company btw haha

Growth focused PEs often operate like VC. Some PE focus on ops improvement which might mean layoffs. Should research into what type of PE it is...
