Our Founder First Philosophy

Customer Centricity

At every turn, we ask "how can we provide more value to our customers?" We know that value capture will come in the long-run if we focus on the customer's needs today.

Our playbooks range from digital transformation, artificial intelligence, to implementing usage-based monetization via APIs.

We like companies that mostly embody the following characteristics--a proven product in a growing industry with room to grow. A SaaS with $2M to $10M in Annual mostly Recurring Revenue. High Net Dollar Retention and Low Churn on a cohort basis with happy, sticky, customers. Healthy growth and margins.

We’re flexible. We are agnostic to geography (the world is flat!), industry, and whether founders stay as part of our growth plans or leave to start their next venture.

These are rules of thumb. Every company is distinct. Reach out to have a conversation! We value discretion and seek to be helpful in our conversations with founders.

Frequently Asked Questions

Questions Founders Ask

What happens to me and my team post-deal?

We are flexible and don’t have a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to founder involvement post-transaction. Join us and help take the business to new heights or move on to your next adventure. Either way, we are here to preserve and build upon what you’ve built, and that means doing right by your team.

Why should I work with a partner like Solen?

We can provide you with liquidity for the business you’ve built through a painless process that won’t waste your time. We are a team of experienced operators that can scale and sustain your business over the long term while you take some chips off the table.

What if I don’t have extensive financials and documentation for a diligence process?

We’re here to make the process of a full or partial cash-out of your business as painless as possible. We can work collaboratively to build a P&L and answer the questions we’ll need to check off before closing in a streamlined manner.

Do I need to be located in a particular geography?

Great entrepreneurs and businesses can be found in all corners of the world. We will never force you or your team to relocate to work with us.

How long does the process usually take?

We pride ourselves on moving fast, and can go from first meeting to funding payouts in 30 days. Our committed capital structure allows us to make all decisions in-house and not wait for approvals and rubber-stamping.

Testimonials

What people say about us

Solen CEOs and Operating Partners

“We get constant private equity and generic interest from financial buyers. When we met Solen, right away we could tell the night and day difference."

J. Thorbergsson | SaaS CEO

“From the very first meetings, we were whiteboarding on product, technology and a growth vision for our company that I hadn’t fully appreciated. They are a team of partners looking to grow the overall pie."

M. Malum | SaaS COO and Investor

“It was clear from calls with the experienced strategic and operating teams at Solen that this was the kind of partner right for us - not a suit and tie financial buyer. The talent their team and network of operating partners can bring was highly impressive."

S. Berman | Head of Engineering at SaaS Company

“Solen from the very beginning came focused on adding value and expertise on the product, tech, marketing and sales side. But it was also apparent that they live by the principles on their website. I came away convinced by their respect for company culture and vision to be a good steward of our company’s future."

B. Jonsdottir | Product Leader at SaaS company
