Investing in enterprise software since inception, Vista pioneered a sector-focused approach to private equity. We partner with organizations at every phase of growth to rise to the next level and maximize future opportunities. Our singular focus on enterprise software companies across a broad range of maturity – from lower-middle market and high-growth organizations to large cap enterprises – has enabled us to develop an adaptable, analytical approach to growth.

Executive Empowerment

Vista unites leaders from forward-thinking enterprise software companies to form our diverse network of executives. We support our executive community through unrivaled access to knowledge sharing and ongoing learning opportunities. These resources serve to empower our executive teams and their companies to face challenges, innovate and build better solutions – together.
