Scaleworks Venture Equity Fund was created to invest in high-potential SaaS businesses, that could benefit from increased focus on strategy, go-to-market and team building.
We invest in B2B SaaS companies, with a proven product and stable customer base.
Invests are typically made to acquire a substantial majority of the business
We are a principles driven team and apply these to operating all our companies
We are strong believers in designing your own category, we’ve carved out a unique (and needed) position between venture capital and private equity. We believe in scaling quickly—but not at all costs, and we want the entire portfolio to succeed rather than being carried by a single outlier. We also invest in growth over any financial engineering that spins cash off the business.
We focus on growth! We are not financial engineers so we do not try to generate high cash flow to take out of the company, we prefer to invest every dollar back into the business, for as long as we see a growth opportunity. We will bring in a CEO, and the Scaleworks team will work with the new CEO and existing company team to figure out what the next steps should be. We have the fortunate position as seeing a number of SaaS companies under one roof – so we can share a lot of learnings. And because we do not over capitalize the company, we do not burden the team with unrealistic growth expectations. We like to think we have a ‘common sense’ approach to business, and with a health cap table and balance sheet, we are able to execute this.
