OUR STORY

General Atlantic was founded by an entrepreneur and philanthropist who built a global business. We aim to help our portfolio companies achieve the same success. 

Chuck Feeney, co-founder of Duty Free Shoppers, established General Atlantic in 1980 to invest in high-growth businesses, support visionary founders like himself and fund the global charitable pursuits of the Atlantic Philanthropies, to which he has donated virtually all of his wealth. 

Our values and experience have guided our decision making: a global mindset, growth orientation, innovation and creativity. Our partnership approach and collaboration with our portfolio companies, our investors and each other enable us to magnify our impact.
