Five Elms Capital is continuing a streak of deals to kick off 2017.
The Kansas City-based venture capital firm announced Monday that it’s the lead investor in MemberClicks, a SaaS provider that helps associations, trade groups and nonprofits manage members. Five Elms — which was joined by New York-based Level Equity as lead investors — did not disclose the value of its investment in the Atlanta-based company.
The investment comes about a month after Five Elms investment in a San Diego-based security firm.
Five Elms managing partner Fred Coulson said that his company has been proactive in targeting the association management space.
“They have been very thoughtful about building a disruptive and modern SaaS platform in a space where many others have invested far too little in their technology stacks,” Coulson said in a release. “This investment comes at a time when MemberClicks has all the pieces in place to step on the gas and meaningfully scale their business.”
MemberClicks CEO Mark Sedgley said that the capital will allow the company to enhance its product offering and expand its sales and marketing efforts. MemberClicks works with more than 1,600 North American organizations, the company said.
Five Elms has invested in other area firms such as Kansas City-based United Medicare Advisors, Lenexa-based Smart Warehousing and Kansas City-based Spring Venture Group, of which Coulson is founder and chairman. Five Elms focuses on investments of $3 to $30 million in business-to-business firms with $2 to $20 million in revenue.
