Our Operational Involvement
Throughout 2019, Mainsail’s dedicated team of operating professionals worked alongside the management teams of our partner companies to offer support for growth. In addition, we provided several opportunities for networking, growth and best practice sharing.
Networking and Best Practices
Mainsail hosted our 5th annual CEO Summit in Napa Valley, CA, where 25 of our portfolio CEOs and board members gathered for two days of networking and knowledge sharing. The summit provided portfolio executives with the opportunity to swap ideas, test new concepts in small group settings, learn from industry trailblazers and, of course, enjoy beautiful Napa Valley.
Mainsail’s Talent Summit was held in Charlotte at SentryOne’s new headquarters, where 16 HR and Talent leaders came together for two days to share insights, workshop new concepts, and network. Notable speakers were in attendance and covered topics on HR strategy, characteristics of high performing cultures and optimizing talent practices.
Product & Technology Summit
Mainsail hosted 33 leaders from its portfolio companies in San Francisco. This summit was planned to coincide with Mind the Product to give attendees the opportunity to hear from product thinkers from around the world. We complemented the public conference with content specific to Mainsail companies, providing a dive deep on how to plan and prioritize a roadmap and how to increase testing and experimentation before building.

At Mainsail, we believe culture is key to success. In 2019, we continued to invest in companies that shared that point of view. Whether interacting with one another or with members of our portfolio companies, we remain committed to our core cultural values of determination, integrity, thoughtfulness and collaboration.
Throughout 2019, we supported 10 PHILANTHROPIC ORGANIZATIONS with community service and charitable giving.
The companies we support continue to progress in their growth journeys and we are proud to be their partners.
