We founded Emergence in 2003 to invest behind our shared thesis that enterprise software would move to the cloud. Today, that bet has paid off handsomely having backed some of the most iconic and successful companies of the last decade including Salesforce, Veeva, SuccessFactors, Box, Yammer and Zoom Video Communications among many others. Today, we are even more enthusiastic about the future of enterprise cloud. Despite our success to date, we are not satisfied. We have not yet achieved our goal.
Our ambition, quite simply, is to be the most important partner to the most important visionaries shaping the future of work.
Why should you consider working with Emergence Capital?
We are leaders that invest in leaders. We have the courage of our own convictions and do not follow others. We invest with conviction as a team behind visionary entrepreneurs with equally great ambitions. We do not equivocate or falter when the going gets tough. You can count on us because we are all in as a firm behind our strategy and behind you.
Focus matters. Focus means finding a unique point of differentiation that really matters to customers and executing 10X better than your competition. We don’t just say it, we live it. That is why we have built our firm around focus and expertise in building enterprise cloud leaders. Every one of us is 100% focused on enterprise cloud. That means we are uniquely able to invest behind and support our portfolio companies as a team.
The best teams win. To win in today’s marketplace requires world-class talent and leadership. We believe in investing heavily in the growth and development of our CEOs and executive teams. We know what world-class looks like, and our network of talent in enterprise cloud is unrivaled. We endeavor to earn the trust of the best talent in our space. We believe if we serve their needs first, that great things will come of it.
Values and purpose matter. Our greatest compliment is when people say “the good guys” won. We love winning, but we love winning with integrity and fairness. We built our firm on a set of values and life purposes that fueled our passion and intensity to win together. We are humble enough to know we are not the primary drivers of our success, that entrepreneurs like you are the lifeblood of our business. We are both grateful and humbled by the opportunity to partner with amazing entrepreneurs like you who are changing the world by making our working lives better, creating jobs, building wealth, and fulfilling human potential. There is nothing more dignifying and gratifying in life than helping people reach their potential. Come join our merry band of brothers and sisters creating the next generation of enterprise cloud leaders.
