Software investors
who put the
entrepreneurs first

We’re technologists and investors, so we understand both the technical and business challenges of growing software companies.
Our team has decades of experience investing in leading software companies. Vertica supports founders with the team building and best practice questions that matter most.

Our
Focus

Software investing is all we do.

Our exclusive focus on growth-stage software companies and entrepreneur-first approach to partnership are core principles for us.

We’ve learned
from the best.

FareHarbor, Veeam, Splunk are a few of the names we’ve learned from. We bring the most important operational lessons from over 50 companies to our partners.

We look for great product founders.

We invest in people who see problems differently - and understand what it’s like to push the limits of product design, choose to focus only on the features that matter, and find elegance in simplicity.

To partner for growth.

From best practices on inside sales to the latest strategies on recruiting, Vertica maintains real time information on how to stay ahead of the competition.

More About Us

Vertica was formed based on the partners’ 20+ years of investment experience across 60+ software companies. With over $200M in capital from leading software entrepreneurs, endowments, pension funds, and financial institutions, Vertica has a singular mission: invest in a small number of great product founders to provide them with unique resources to grow.

Based in New York - Madison Square Park

"The Vertica team brings unique experience, rolodex connections, and best practices to the table. I think of them as an unfair advantage that allows companies to outperform. Partnering with the folks at Vertica was one of the best business decisions I ever made."

Jonathan Cogley
Founder of Thycotic

“Few investors understand the importance of building great cultures the way the Vertica team does. That was one of our keys to success at Splunk, and their team brings the same DNA to their portfolio.”

Tom Schodorf
Former SVP of Splunk

“We've trusted the judgment of the Vertica team at the most crucial decision points for our business. Few investors understand software companies the way the Vertica team does.”

Lawrence Hester
Founder of FareHarbor

“It’s hard to find investors who understand both the technical challenges of building great products and have the experience of scaling go-to-market. I am excited to support this team.”
