Finding a Firm That Values Relationships
There are several things that drew me to Vista.
One was the people. When I went to Austin to meet the team, instead of just handshaking — which was the business environment I was used to — everyone was hugging to greet one other. It felt like a family.
Then through my interviews, I could tell Vista would be a great place to flex different muscles by digging in deep with companies, understanding what’s driving them and working with them to grow.
The last thing that attracted me to the firm was the endless learning opportunities. At Vista, you’re trusted very early on to work directly with companies, consider potential investments and help craft an investment thesis.
Making an Impact
As a member of our Foundation Fund team, my day-to-day involves partnering with middle-market companies that are focused on enterprise software. We help them grow both organically and inorganically.
I’m particularly motivated by Vista’s investment in mission-critical businesses that are solving global challenges. One example is Power Factors, which is in the renewables space. They’re improving the environment by helping solar and wind energy companies drive better asset performance.
When you think about the impact you’re driving, it’s more than just a return on investment. It’s about actually making people’s lives better. That’s what I like — that there’s a mission behind the work we’re doing.
Inspired by Leaders Who Care
For anyone searching for a meaningful career, my advice is to find a place that will inspire you – I’ve found that at Vista.
Vista provides a great culture of working hard but also taking time to recognize and celebrate our accomplishments. Our senior leaders are focused on developing and building relationships with junior team members.
What I specifically like about our Foundation Fund team is that you have people looking out for you, who are genuinely focused on your development and want to see you succeed.
