ArkMalibu is pleased to announce that Todd Gardner has joined as Senior Advisor.

Todd Gardner is a subject matter expert in the software-as-a-service, (SaaS) industry.  Todd was the founder and CEO of SaaS Capital, the first and largest specialty lender focused on SaaS companies.

Todd launched SaaS Capital in 2006 and over the next 14 years funded 65 SaaS companies in the US and Europe.  As the company founder, Todd designed a unique underwriting model and loan structure that served the growth capital needs of SaaS businesses while mitigating risk for investors.  Each of SaaS Capital’s three investment funds delivered either top decile or top quartile returns with no underwriting losses.

As a thought leader in the space, Todd continues to publish numerous articles on the SaaS business model, including: “What is Your SaaS Company Worth?”, and “How Do Top Performing SaaS Companies Spend Their Money?” In addition, Todd created and launched the largest survey of private SaaS businesses in the world, and is a frequent speaker at SaaS conferences.

Todd sold his ownership in SaaS Capital in April of 2020 and now advises high growth SaaS businesses in the US and Europe. Prior to SaaS Capital, Todd was a partner at Blue Chip Venture Company for ten years where he focused on investing in enterprise software businesses.

Prior to Blue Chip, Todd was Manager at Deloitte Consulting where he focused on large scale software deployments. He started his professional career at PNC Bank as a Commercial Loan Officer focused on leverage buyouts and commercial leasing.

Todd looks forward to leveraging his knowledge of the SaaS landscape to help business owners succeed in the most important transaction of their lives.

The ArkMalibu team welcomes Todd and looks forward to working with him to drive creative solutions for current and future transactions.
