Alex Niehenke

Partner

Alex joined Scale in 2013 as a Principal, responsible for sourcing investments in DroneDeploy and Forter. A Partner since 2017, Alex has focused on early investments in vertical software markets where incumbents have failed to invest in advanced technology offerings. That thesis has led to investments in KeepTruckin (2017), Root Insurance (2018), Scout RFP (2019), Proxy (2020), and Spruce (2020). KeepTruckin has been one of the fastest growing SaaS companies of all time; Root has raised $523M in capital, most recently at a $3.65B valuation; and Scout RFP was acquired by Workday in late 2019 for $540M.

Alex sits on the Board of Directors of KeepTruckin, Proxy, and Spruce. He has written about SaaS in TechCrunch and been profiled by Business Insider, Forbes, and Silicon Valley Business Journal.
