Enterprise Support Software: Q3 2023 Vertical Coverage Report

In this edition of Founder’s ESS Vertical Coverage Report, our team provides valuable insights from the marketplace based on Q3. While there continues to be a lag in deal flow, we’re encouraged by data showing an uptick in valuation multiples for certain sectors. In our active processes and dialogue with private equity and strategic buyers, we’re seeing continued interest in Add-On acquisitions for existing platforms. For new platform investments, buyers are focused on the “Mission Critical” nature of the business. The report also includes a recap of our 9th annual tech CEO summit – Silicon Y’all.

Our update also features deep dives into:

  • Supply Chain Software
  • FP&A Software
  • Workflow & Process Automation Software
  • Enterprise Software Consulting Services

As we finish out 2023, Founders remains focused on helping founder-owned and led businesses achieve their goals, whether that is to exit completely, take some chips off the table, or raise capital to accelerate growth.

If you are considering a transaction, please reach out to our team for insight into what investors and buyers are looking for, as well as how we uniquely position each business to maximize value, minimize the disruption to your daily business, and optimize the probability of a successful outcome.
