Infusion to Further Expand Suite of Cloud-Based Software and Services for Small-Staff Associations
ATLANTA – February 13, 2017 – MemberClicks, the leading provider of membership management software for small-staff associations, announced today an investment in the company by growth equity firms Five Elms Capital and Level Equity. The investment will allow MemberClicks to further enhance its product offering and to expand its sales and marketing efforts, according to MemberClicks CEO Mark Sedgley.
MemberClicks provides a comprehensive website and membership management software solution for associations, trade groups, and non-profits. The platform was built specifically to allow small-staff groups to effectively manage event registration, membership dues, and organization engagement. MemberClicks prides itself on providing not only a high-quality product, but also best-in-class customer service.
“We are beyond excited to partner with Five Elms and Level Equity.” Sedgley added. “Their growth investment will act as a catalyst for our mission to empower organizations to thrive through refreshing technology and a heart for service. At a time when many of our competitors are choosing to be consolidated, MemberClicks will continue to invest deeply in our product and service set with a sole focus on our current and future association customers. We aspire for MemberClicks to be the destination platform of choice for the association community to more efficiently and profitably run their unique and complex businesses.”
“We proactively targeted and mapped the association management space and were able to engage with Mark, his team and many of his partners and customers over a long period of time.” said Fred Coulson, Founder and Managing Partner at Five Elms Capital. “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. This investment comes at a time when MemberClicks has all the pieces in place to step on the gas and meaningfully scale their business.”
“We engage with thousands of bootstrapped software businesses every year,” said Ben Levin, Founder and Partner at Level Equity, “and saw a compelling opportunity to support Mark and his team as they continued to distance themselves from many of the legacy providers and roll-ups in the association management space.”
