Who is HoriZen Capital ?

SaaS Leaders who have been successful CEOs in growing acquisition and investing opportunities with our SaaS growth and management playbook.

Check out recent case studies with some successful startup companies: 99 Dollar Social and Postalytics.

Data-driven growth marketers. We understand how to grow SaaS businesses.  

We run a successful international growth marketing agency and have assembled a team of leading experts in each and every digital acquisition channel (SEO, CRO and Paid Ads) to scale SaaS companies.

Finance experts specialized in startup investing.  We have over 20 years of experience in SaaS M&A, private equity and Big 4 M&A due diligence.

All individuals from our team combined, we have worked on over 50 successful transactions, either as investors, due diligence experts or M&A advisors. 

Scrappy entrepreneurs. We’ve started several SaaS businesses ourselves and have been entrepreneurs for as long as we can remember.

Several members of our team had successful entrepreneur exits. Thanks to our team background, we better connect with other founders and can fully relate to their situation.

How Do We Operate SaaS companies ?

1 - We invest in startup SaaS companies through growth equity and join the leadership team to be involved in every part of the marketing and growth department. 

2 - We acquire majority stakes in SaaS companies, provide an exit to founders and take over the management of the private company to build a diversified investment portfolio.

In both these instances, we actively accelerate the growth of the tech startup companies by leveraging our growth playbook of SEO, scaling paid ad campaigns and team’s management expertise.

When financial leverage is possible, HoriZen will also find and structure debt financing or quasi-equity financing when investing in the startup company in order to provide higher leveraged return on investment to their LPs.

How Do We Work With and For Our LPs?

As part of being part of the private investors club, we handle the whole SaaS investment process, from deal sourcing to negotiation to due diligence to closing for a potential investor to build a word class investment portfolio.

All our investment club LPs are totally free to invest in each and every investment opportunity. We have a defined process to involve our private members at two main points in the process:

  1. After a thorough pre-screening of opportunities and ensuring alignment on valuation expectation, we share the opportunities to our LPs to collect interest and main points they would like to see confirmed during the due diligence process, to make a sound investment decision in the promising startup.
  2. After an in-depth analysis of the business financials and its market and right before signing a LOI, we’ll reach out to our private investor club members to confirm interest before investing. At this stage, LPs commitment to the deal becomes binding, providing that post-LOI due diligence does not uncover any deal breakers.

Fee Structure

The HoriZen’s Private SaaS Investment Club membership is totally free to join as a startup investor. To ensure full alignment with our LPs, we do charge a transaction fee upon successful deal closing to cover our costs, and we take a % of equity in the deal plus an upside management fee based on return on investment that we deliver to our members.

We do have a minimum investment amount and make sure every individual SaaS investor is an accredited investor to be able to invest in this asset class.
