Sajjad Jaffer
Head of Data, Analytics and Machine Learning at Growth Curve Capital


Sajjad is the Head of Data Analytics and Machine Learning and a member of the Investment Committee at GrowthCurve Capital. He joined GrowthCurve at its inception in 2021 as part of the founding Senior Leadership Team. GrowthCurve Capital is a private equity firm focused on building world-class businesses by leveraging data, analytics, and machine learning, combined with a comprehensive approach to human capital, to accelerate growth and drive value creation.

Prior to joining GrowthCurve, Sajjad co-founded Two Six Capital, the Silicon Valley firm that pioneered Data Science for Private Equity. Sajjad’s arc at Two Six began as a startup entrepreneur in 2012 when he found 25 years of Ph.D. research developed by Wharton Professors Eric Bradlow and Peter Fader. Two Six was launched in 2013 with a team of Data Scientists and Data Engineers that applied this research to private equity investing. This technology platform was acquired in 2020 as an AI asset by West Monroe Partners at which point Sajjad concluded his Two Six tenure through its successful exit.

He holds a B.A. from Bowdoin, where he double majored in Computer Science and Government and minored in Economics, and an M.B.A. from the Wharton School. He serves on the Board of AI and Analytics at Wharton.
