Year in Review
Founded in 2008, Serent Capital is a leading private equity firm focused on investing in fast-growing software and services businesses. Our investment approach is distinct in its focus on active business building. We strive to be an involved, value-added investor, capable of providing significant operational and strategic support to our portfolio companies on the most critical issues that they face as their companies scale.
Serent celebrated its 10th anniversary capping off a busy year in 2018. We inaugurated our third fund and experienced many “firsts” including the first year we deployed more than $200M of capital and the first year we invested in 10 or more platforms. 2018 was also a busy year for our portfolio companies as we placed more portfolio company executives and implemented more revenue growth initiatives than in any prior year.
