GrowthCap names Peter Arrowsmith Top 25 Software Investor of 2020


GrowthCap is pleased to announce The Top 25 Software Investors of 2020. The software industry is rapidly evolving as companies increasingly seek innovative SaaS solutions that drive digital transformation and operational efficiency. With many companies shifting to remote work models, these solutions have been in even higher demand. The investors represented on this list have helped to provide software companies with the capital they need to meet this ever-growing demand and develop new products and services. Their active involvement has positioned companies for long-term success and allowed them to differentiate within a competitive market.

Select firms saw multiple partners land a spot on this year’s list; TPG and IVP had three and two awardees, respectively. Nominees were evaluated based on their professional track record, breadth of experience, portfolio of investments, and feedback from colleagues and peers. Awardees were selected for their consistently high investment performance, insightful judgement, and demonstrated expertise in the software space.

Many of this year’s top investors have been involved with software companies that have seen substantial growth. Notably, Mike Speiser, Managing Director at Sutter Hill Ventures and Matt Garratt, Managing Partner at Salesforce Ventures were key investors in Snowflake, the software unicorn that recently went public and is now valued at over $60 billion.

Congratulations to each of this year’s awardees.
