Investing Partners


We are humbled and proud to be backed by the best. We’ve raised committed capital from some of the world's leading investors across technology and private equity who share our vision of creating a founder-friendly buyer of choice for founder-led SaaS companies. Our capital partners are long term oriented and all operators themselves.

Our Team's Principles

We like to build and operate with a common set of principles which we believe make Solen a great place to work.
Low Time Preference, Patient, Long Term Thinker
Unfazed by short-term pressure. Holds a belief in delayed gratification and propensity for low time preference for great outcomes.
Make It Great
The attitude you bring, is the attitude you shall find. Strive for excellence. Leave it better than you found it. Go the extra mile. Mediocrity not accepted.
Simplify Where Others Complicate
Conveys complex ideas in precise, concise, simple, digestible ways.
Humble. Willingness to be Misunderstood
Low ego and okay looking stupid. Practices equal parts equanimity and dispassionate objectivity.
Talent Magnets
Insists on the highest standards for Solen team members. Hire and develop the best.
Listen and Act
Surfaces divergent views and forms consensus amidst disagreement and dissonance. Commits to action amidst disagreement when consensus isn’t present.  
Improve 1% Daily, With A Thirst To Learn:
Curious. Inventive. Does the work. Practices consistent incremental improvement. Fortune favors the curious mind.
Think Big
Thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy. Creating and communicating a bold direction inspires results. 
All-in With an Ownership Mindset
Willingness to risk both material capital and reputation. Renters don’t aerate the lawn. Thinks like an owner, not a renter. 
Consistently Does The Work
Tunes out overabundance of stimuli and consistently shows up--not in bursts of energy. Follows up.
Relentless Optimist & Growth Mindset
Infectious energy and an optimistic attitude. Comfortable with discomfort.
All-in With an Ownership Mindset
Willingness to risk both material capital and reputation. Renters don’t aerate the lawn. Thinks like an owner, not a renter.

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.
