BUY. BUILD. HOLD.

Wonderful Software Companies

Merit is a holding company that acquires, manages and builds software businesses in niche verticals over a very long period of time. We're an experienced team of operators and investors with a proven track record in software. We aspire to be a different kind of investor, one who strives to build great companies and provide a permanent home for businesses, not optimize for short-term results like traditional private equity. Our focus is on employees, customers and great products. We love going deep to understand their needs and driving growth through trust and empowerment. Our portfolio of companies runs independently yet benefits from shared expertise, resources, capital, and community. Our capital comes from a small group of world-class entrepreneurs and investors who share a similar mindset and value system. 

A PERMANENT HOME THAT HONORS YOUR LEGACY

Why We're Different

We are a holding company, not an investment firm.  
We know what it's like to run and grow a software business because we’ve done it.
We are business builders with a growth mindset.
We ensure employees, customers and partners thrive after you exit.
We keep things simple...complex terms and renegotiating isn't good for anyone.
With our capital base, we acquire with confidence and move quickly.
