At Thoma Bravo, my favorite part of the deal-making process is when it all comes together. There's so many little parts. There's the price. There's the financing. There's the business plan being driven by management. And sometimes it just comes together so beautifully. But I use the analogy with my partners all the time, that this was just a beautiful piece of art, how it all flowed together.
I'm Orlando Bravo, founder and managing partner of Thoma Bravo, one of the largest software investors in the world. At Thoma Bravo, we partner with great technology companies to help them do even greater things.
The support and the manner in which Thoma Bravo just stood right behind us and afforded us the opportunity to make the right decisions, it was phenomenal.
Behind every one of these deals is a unique story. That's what this podcast is all about. Every week, I'll be introducing you to the people behind the deals, from the leaders at Thoma Bravo to the CEOs who lead many extraordinary companies in our portfolio.
Look, we were a Cleveland-based software company in the '90s. It was super valuable with Thoma Bravo to have just better visibility to what other successful software companies were doing to grow their businesses.
And every single situation is different within our mission of achieving both innovation and operational excellence.
There were some things about scaling that you guys understood, that were super important at various critical junctures.
As CEO, I love my job, and I don't think I would love it as much as I do if I didn't have the relationships with the Thoma Bravo team that I have been able to build.
