SaaS 🤝 Private Equity

2021, a record breaking year for SaaS PE deals

Happy Friday Founders & Friends!

As you already know, at Bloom VP, we look to acquire outstanding SaaS companies, and according to recent data 2021 is shaping up to be a big year for SaaS private equity deals. 🔥🔥

Earlier this month, Protocol and Pitchbook released some staggering data on enterprise tech deals in 2021:

  • Private equity firms have poured $16.1 billion into the sector over 105 deals. Up from $13.2 billion in 2020.

  • 2021 is also outpacing 2019; that year, the industry invested $20.4 billion in the sector over 126 deals.

  • The top five most active firms are HG Capital, Vista Equity Partners, Providence Equity Partners, ABRY Partners and TA Associates Management.
