What is an enterprise software startup?


An enterprise software startup is a technology company focused on delivering products and/or services to businesses through programs (software) that operate on computers and/or mobile devices. These business customers can range in size from sole operators to small and medium businesses to large multinational enterprise organizations. Some enterprise software companies are also in the business of selling enterprise hardware (e.g. Oracle sells both enterprise hardware and software) and/or consumer software (e.g. Microsoft sells software to both the enterprise and to consumers). Some examples of enterprise software companies include SAP, Salesforce, and Slack (FundersClub is a shareholder in Slack as a result of Slack’s acquisition of Screenhero, a company FundersClub invested in).
