Our Company

We have been acquiring and providing growth capital to mission-critical enterprise software businesses for over 10 years.

Our Approach

We are passionate about helping software companies scale

Who We Are

Klass is a long term-oriented private equity firm that invests in enterprise software businesses with great growth potential. Klass is backed by a large U.S. institutional investor and high net worth individuals. We make equity investments of $5-40 million and are open to minority or control ownership.

Why We’re Unique

Long-term approach

 

We have long-term committed capital and the flexibility to hold our investments for a longer time period than traditional funds. We strongly believe that the best software companies are built with a long-term mindset.

Highly focused on talent

 

Klass Talent, our in-house recruitment and talent acquisition team, supports portfolio companies as they scale. We are more than an investor. We partner with our companies to help them to grow their teams. Technology is important but the best software companies are built on the relationships and knowledge of long-tenured and experienced teams.

Deep enterprise software experience

 

We have been acquiring and providing growth capital to mission-critical SaaS businesses for over 10 years. We have developed a collaborative community of software executives across North America and Europe.
