We have been acquiring and providing growth capital to mission-critical enterprise software businesses for over 7 years. In 2011, Klass raised a growth equity fund backed by a $60 billion dollar pension plan, a number of institutional investors, and high net worth entrepreneurs. After fully deploying that fund, we shifted our focus towards acquiring established enterprise software businesses.
We acquire high quality and mission-critical software businesses with great people. Technology is important but the best software companies are built on the relationships and knowledge of long-tenured and experienced teams that have deep roots in their industries. Beyond that, Klass is looking for stable, mid-sized companies with attractive opportunities for incremental growth.
To find out more about whether or not your company might be a good fit for Klass Capital, please reach out to Kevin Climans from the investment team.
