Software & Services

Today's Software & Services industry is the latest evolution of a set of computing trends with which we at Foundation Capital are intimately familiar.

From Software as a Service (SaaS) to Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) to the current combination of client-based software and Internet-based services, Foundation Capital's partners have actively participated over the years in the steadily maturing growth of the type of functionality—and companies—needed in our new, dynamically interconnected world.

Since investing in our first SaaS company in 1996, Foundation Capital has helped over two dozen SaaS companies from the seed stage all the way through liquidity. Our partners include noted experts in engineering, product management, sales, and marketing.
