Vector Capital is a value investor in established technology businesses, both public and private. We work in partnership with management to navigate companies through transitions in their business.
As a private investor we spin out non-core businesses from corporations, buy founder-owned companies, and fix balance sheets through recapitalizations. As a public investor we take strategic stakes in undervalued companies. We bridge both worlds by taking public companies private, when appropriate.
We are highly selective, choosing to invest in only a handful of opportunities each year. Our approach is rigorous and deeply analytical, with an emphasis on business fundamentals, such as financial performance, competitive positioning, and product strategy.
Vector Capital was founded in 1997 and is based in San Francisco. We currently manage over $2 billion in equity capital.
