We have a history and passion for investing in and growing software and technology businesses.

Our mission is to deliver superior value to our investors and companies by forming collaborative partnerships that produce operational excellence and innovation.

Thoma Bravo is a leading private equity firm with a 40+ year history, including over $78 billion in assets under management as of March 31, 2021, and a focus on investing in software and technology companies. We pioneered the buy-and-build investment strategy, and we first applied this strategy to the software and technology industries 20+ years ago. Since then, our firm has acquired more than 300 software and technology companies representing over $85 billion of value. Our investment philosophy is centered around working collaboratively with existing management teams to help drive operating results and innovation. We execute through a partnership-driven approach supported by a set of management principles, operating metrics and business processes. We support our companies by investing in growth initiatives and strategic acquisitions designed to drive long-term value.

Diversity Inclusion

Our human capital is our most valuable asset

The collective sum of our employees’ individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, capabilities and talent is the fabric of our culture and a key driver of our reputation and success.

We believe in the benefits of diversity and inclusion, and these values form the core of a collaborative and innovative work environment. In recruitment, we are taking active steps to attract and hire candidates from diverse and underrepresented backgrounds. We embrace individual differences and strive to foster a culture of inclusion that allows all employees to reach for their highest potential.

SEO Career

We recognize that providing access and opportunity to students and young adults is another critical component to increasing diversity within the industries in which we operate: private equity and technology. To help us achieve this goal, we are proud to partner with organizations that share a similar purpose and passion for closing the opportunity gap for underrepresented individuals. In particular, we are honored to partner with Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO) to launch a first-ever tech internship program to provide diverse college students with access to paid internships at our portfolio companies.
