Vista Equity Partners and Fusion Risk Management
Vista Equity Partners, a market-leading global investment firm, initially invested in Fusion Risk Management in September 2019. The opportunity was born out of Vista’s Endeavor Fund which targets mission-critical enterprise software businesses in order to help them scale within their existing markets.
The team was enthusiastic about the partnership, and at the time of investment, Vista stated, “Fusion’s market-leading products are redefining excellence in business continuity and related risk management, and we are excited about their vision of the future. The quality of the product, performance of the business, and expanding opportunities for customers make this a compelling investment.”
Through their partnership, Vista and Fusion created the Fusion Pandemic Toolkit for businesses which utilized Fusion’s risk management software to help businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Toolkit served as an online community hub and provided users with resources that accurately tracked the spread of the virus and provided templates for communication plans.
