Supporting a thriving SaaS scene. Keeping founders sane.
When we started our internet businesses, we didn’t plan to become investors. But after meeting so many burned-out founders who were frustrated with the selling process, we knew this would be the best way to contribute to a growing community of amazing digital products.
Our portfolio company is a platform for founders to:
Make their product even better and grow their customer base.
Limit their own risk, even for companies that are not 10x venture capital or private equity cases.
Take a step back, breathe, and figure out what they want to do next.
Take their processes from startup to professional-grade.
Our first priority when founding saas.group in 2017 was a founder-friendly approach to acquisitions. We looked at what made private equity firms and other common routes so maddening, and worked backward, simplifying every step. The result has been founders and teams who are happy with the process and relieved to see their SaaS business in a great home for the long term.
We treat others as we want to be treated
When you work with saas.group for your exit, partial exit or funding needs, you work with a team of experienced tech veterans who are committed to making each deal:
saas.group’s core leadership handles the entire acquisition process, from first contact to final steps of arranging post-merger operations. You’ll always speak to someone who knows what’s going on and is there to help. No corporate “suits” – always friendly faces of people who have been in your position.
Our core principles that drive each acquisition:
No Lawyers involved
Always an efficient and personable process where you feel valued and respected.
Your product remains a standalone business.
We like people who are driven, but we steer clear of anybody who makes work a miserable experience.
Retain and grow company cultures
The way you do things has made you successful, so we won’t try to change it.
Support autonomy and mastery
We empower leaders and teams to work independently, and support their efforts to get even better.
Keep it simple
We like simple products, straightforward discussions, very few meetings, and simplifying just about anything else we can.
