Today, we announced our third fund at High Alpha — a $110 million fund we raised to support our mission of funding early-stage enterprise cloud companies.
Over the past five years, we’ve now raised over $215 million across three funds, started 28 companies, and invested in over 50 leading SaaS businesses across the US and Canada.
Why We’re Excited About the Future of Enterprise Cloud
Before the pandemic, cloud adoption was already growing rapidly. The transition to remote and hybrid work models accelerated that trajectory and forced an even more aggressive shift to the cloud. In fact, cloud technology is growing faster than ever, with the Emerging Cloud Index up 100% YoY at the time I’m writing this.
Cloud adoption has increasingly become the new normal for businesses over the past decade, but we believe it’s early and there’s tremendous value yet to be created. We are so excited that companies are finally realizing the power of enterprise cloud technology to transform the way they do business and with this new fund, we are well-positioned to support entrepreneurs building technology that will help enterprises continue their digital transformation.
