2021 Year In Review

We believe 2021 was a year of growth and action for Mainsail Partners, buoyed by the resilience and tenacity displayed by our portfolio of software companies.

While supporting our portfolio companies to achieve growth, Mainsail itself made important strides, including opening a second office in Austin, Texas and expanding our team of investment and operating professionals.
