Bain capital is another firm that likes to put their money into new startups early and be there down the line when growth funds are needed. They have large pockets, yet have made around half the deals the other investors on this list have at just 224 investments in 137 companies entering the final quarter of 2016.

They typically won’t invest less than 1M in a startup, such as they did for DGraph Labs in March 2016. They will invest well into the hundreds of millions for the right company and welcome all disruptive B2B founders with an idea to contact them. They only invest in the industries listed and consider themselves experts in those areas (ie., you won’t have to educate them on why your idea’s great; they’ll likely know right away whether they’re interested or not). Notable investments include 4moms, 6sense, Ability, APImetrics, BloomReach, BMC, ChromeRiver, Clari, DGraph, DynaTrace, InfoScout, InfusionSoft, Jet, LinkedIn, Optimizely, SolarWinds, Tennis Channel, Vonage and Wrike.
