Focus

We are focused on making large majority investments or full acquisitions in small, profitable, technology businesses. We would love to continue to work with the founder/leadership team as partners over the long-term.

Current Investment Criteria:

  • Software; online or app based

  • Profitable; or break-even w/ a longer history

  • Small; <$3M revenue

We invest only our own capital which gives us the freedom to make the best long-term decision, always. We’d hope to own the companies we invest in forever, and look forward to hearing about your company: investment@saltwater.com

From an early age my experiences in the ocean have been a key source of clarity, inspiration, and personal growth. SALTWATER fosters those vibes by bringing an endless pursuit of learning, discovery, and adventure to our work. 

Saltwater covers over 73% of our earth, it’s everywhere, and it’s our most critical eco-asset. We have large ambitions for our growing portfolio and family of companies, so naming ourself after the sea is the right inspiration. We are driven by these three principles:

  • People come first.

  • Focus on the long-term.

  • Don’t lose money.

We hope to learn about your business, and would love to become partners in the future and share in the adventure 🤙
