We have some exciting news to share!
For the last several quarters, we've been assembling the building blocks on an audacious vision — a radically new kind of investment firm providing SaaS founders with the services, network, and capital products to fundamentally rethink venture building and M&A opportunities for early-stage software companies.
We have officially unveiled this vision at Bloom Venture Partners → bloomvp.com
Think of Bloom as a new kind of SaaS investment firm meets startup studio, with 3 pillars:
bloom.studio :: a full-stack product + marketing agency enabling saas teams to scale faster with less burn
bloom.equity :: a buyout fund focused on acquiring + operating beautiful saas businesses w $250k - $2.5m ARR. Know any founders looking for the liquidity to hop to their next great idea? We would love to chat about our scout program (reply if you think you would be a great fit!)
bloom.capital :: what you knew Work.fund as historically; our early-stage investment fund providing $25-$250k checks into remarkable teams building software that improves how we work, live + play.
As a team of serial founders & operators turned investors, we're building the platform we wished existed on our own journeys as entrepreneurs — a platform of highly experienced and empathetic operators our founders can turn to. Offering value-add early-stage capital, talent, and resources to help companies scale, Bloom is the source for lightning-fast, fair, and life-changing liquidity enabling founders to move on to their next adventure.
We call this the future of venture building & micro private equity.
We call this Bloom Venture Partners.
