What our CEOs are saying
“I’ve raised a lot of money over the past 20 years from VCs. They almost always pitch you on great value-add services or unique networking opportunities–and yet most are underwhelming. Sapphire is different, helping us whenever we need it and offering the support it takes to lead our industry. Between introducing us to dozens of prospective customers, featuring us at high-impact events, and providing us with best practices on scaling during hyper-growth, Sapphire is second to none.”
Bhavin Shah CEO & Co-Founder
"Sapphire’s value-add platform is the real deal. They connected us directly with CIOs and data officers at top enterprise companies, some of whom have since become customers, and have already recruited multiple key members of our leadership team (with more to come!). They are one of the best investors I’ve encountered at helping their companies scale.”
Sam Gutmann CEO & Co-Founder
