We first met the Squire team in August of 2016 while the company was in Y-Combinator. Our original impression was that the founders were strong and. that they were building an exceptionally innovative company however, it was not the right time for us to invest. Over several years, we continued to grow our relationship with the founders and tracked the company as it grew its ACV and added a subscription revenue stream. We were impressed by the founders’ ability to innovate and add new features to increase ACV.
