We are a permanent home for unique software products. We don’t buy to sell. Though we acquire companies, we are first and foremost a software operating company with unique business lines. We are extremely culture-focused, collaborative, and operationally intensive. We care about serving customers really well and growing the businesses sustainably and profitably long term. In many ways we get the best of two worlds– we have the energy, velocity, and growth of a startup, but the operational stability and business intelligence of a seasoned corporation.
Our approach ensures great outcomes for founders, employees, customers, and San Antonio.
We currently operate four business lines, with three more on the way this year.
