Boston-based tech startup SaaSWorks bags $5M in funding to provide no-app solution for scaling SaaS companies
SaaSWorks, a Boston-based tech startup that provides a revenue operations and customer success solution for scaling subscription businesses, today announced it has received a $5 million investment led by Conversion Venture Capital along with prominent SaaS CEOs, CFOs and executives.
“It’s been humbling to see the type of support we’ve had from our initial customers, team and investors,” says Co-Founder Vipul Shah. “Based on what we learned from operating, investing in, and advising numerous scaling SaaS companies over the past several years, Jim and I identified a common theme around the need for operational solutions to deliver customer outcomes.”
SaaSWorks was founded by Jim O’Neill and Vipul Shah in 2019 with a mission to provide customer success and revenue operations (RevOps) solutions for scaling subscription businesses.
“What is unique about the SaaSWorks approach is that it’s truly a service-led, product-enabled company that delivers results to our customers,” O’Neill says.
Prior to founding SaaSWorks, O’Neill was a founding team member of HubSpot and helped the company grow from 5 employees to over 1,500 and from 10 customers to over 25,000. He was named CIO of the Year by the Boston Business Journal in 2015 and sits on the Worcester Polytechnic Institute Dean’s Council of Strategic Advisors.
Prior to HubSpot, O’Neill worked with Shah to scale, and eventually sell, Pyramid Digital Solutions, an enterprise software company. Shah then spent over 10 years investing in high-growth companies while working for investment firms, including Goldman Sachs Private Equity.
“Our long-term capital commitment reflects our confidence in Jim and Vipul’s ability to create a platform that adds real value that’s long-lasting,” says Conversion Venture Capital Founding Partner Shakeel Rangrez.” Jim and Vipul have a tremendous record of success at multiple platforms, and as a result, the approach and perspective they’re going to take regarding this investment aligns well with our values.”
Conversion Venture Capital focuses on partnering with founders, entrepreneurs and management teams who value flexible capital. They back platforms and continue to provide support as those platforms scale, as opposed to providing companies with individual rounds of funding.
