How we're different

How We're Different

Zenio Partners Team Background

All of our technologists have extensive experience in large tech companies or high-growth scaleups. They have worked at the leading-edge of modern web-application technology and can recognise common technical pitfalls along with with opportuntities for value creation.

Zenio Partners Web Applications
Focus on Web Applications

We are entirely focused on modern web applications and related technologies. Our coverage areas include SaaS, Entreprise Software, DevOps, Marketplaces, Fintech and Ecommerce. This focus ensures that we can deliver market-leading advice to both investors and operators.

Zenio Partners Real World Perspective
Real World

Our technologists are not career IT consultants. They are experienced engineering leaders and operators who understand real world resource constraints, have made difficult technical tradeoff decisions, and crucially, have experienced the consequences of those decisions.

Why We Exist

It's hard to nail the tech in a high-growth startup

For high-growth startups, getting the underlying technology right is critical. But paradoxically, the scaling pressures created by initial commercial success make it very difficult to get the technology right. Even the most capable engineering leaders face extreme pressures in this environment, typically getting pulled in multiple directions simultaneously. This increases the risk of technology missteps, white-knuckle moments and 14-hour days. 

We exist to support companies and engineering leadership by providing an outside perspective on technical challenges, from people who have been in the trenches. We aim to reduce the occurrence and severity of technology missteps, and help companies to create additional value through better technology decision-making throughout their scaling journeys. 

Zenio Partners Our Mission

Large Technology Brand Names + Venture-backed Scaleups

All of our engineering leaders and CTOs have worked at the world's leading technology companies or prominent venture-backed scaleups, and many have experience in both. As a result, they have worked at the leading-edge of modern SaaS technology and have extensive experience in evaluating, selecting and implementing modern technology stacks.
