Investing at the Expansion Stage

As a founder, you've developed a repeatable value proposition, but not necessarily a repeatable go-to-market strategy. That's where we come in.

We invest exclusively in expansion stage software companies targeting North American markets. But what does that mean? The expansion stage is the point where you as a founder have developed a repeatable value proposition, but not necessarily a repeatable go-to-market strategy. That’s where we come in.

Over the last decade, we’ve allowed our focus on the expansion stage to guide the work we do across our portfolio to ensure that you are not only successful, but fulfill your mission and ours of improving people’s working lives.

While we appreciate that every company is unique, we also recognize that there are a specific set of challenges that keep software companies from growing. Our focus has made us masters of pattern recognition. And our team of in-house experts enables us to take conversations outside of the boardroom and into the bullpen so we can help you hire the right people and win the best deals.

Improving People’s Working Lives

People are at the center of everything we do at OpenView – whether that’s our team or the entrepreneurs with whom we partner. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to improve people’s working lives. Every company we invest in builds market-leading software aimed at making their customers’ lives in the office easier. Our hope is that by improving the day to day of the working population, people will not just be more productive in the office, but more active contributors to their communities.

We improve people’s working lives by partnering with entrepreneurs to build great companies, helping people develop and thrive, maximizing the impact of our investors’ missions and supporting organizations that empower the community.
