The most successful VC in SaaS

Who are the most successful VC in SaaS? To answer that question, we looked at the past 41 SaaS IPOs and who their major investors were. The list is below.


The best. Not surprisingly, Sequoia and Accel top the list with 6 each. August, NEA, and TPG have 3 each.

Lots of 2’s. Ten firms have 2 IPOs each. These include Vista, Benchmark, Thoma Bravo, Bessemer, Sapphire, and Tiger.

The rest of the firms shown have 1 IPO each. There were others with 1 each, but we stopped with our current list as we’re really looking for those firms with multiple SaaS IPO’s. Surprisingly, or maybe not surprisingly, Softbank only has 1.
