Maggie Miller Associate Vice President, Investments
T/R’s mission is to help product-focused software companies with great bones reach their next phases of growth.
There’s a new breed of highly-efficient, mission-critical, product-led software companies today, and we’ve found they’re not always a great fit for the existing financial ecosystem. They’re oftentimes too capital-efficient for venture capital, too small for large-cap private equity, and there’s still too much value left to be created to sell to a strategic acquirer. Turn/River is purpose-built to fill this gap by offering flexible capital that meets the liquidity and growth needs of founders, alongside strong operational support and playbooks to help accelerate growth profitably.
At T/R, I work across the whole investment lifecycle—from sourcing new opportunities, to executing investments, to partnering with our Ops Team and portfolio companies to help carry out our investment theses. My favorite part about my job is getting to see a company through its journey at T/R from start to finish—from the initial phone call with a company’s founder, all the way through to a successful second exit after tremendous growth, creating value for everyone.
I graduated with a Political Science degree and minor in Journalism from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with the intention of pursuing a career in Corporate M&A law. That vision shifted after I started working in sales & marketing with a start-up called Bannerman, which led to a love for the world of software—and eventually to Turn/River!
T/R’s mission is to help product-focused software companies with great bones reach their next phases of growth. We ensure our businesses maintain their autonomy through working collaboratively and aligning on core growth objectives early on, so we can all hit the ground running on our growth initiatives. We have a continuous growth mindset and love to iterate on our playbooks as we try new things across our portfolio, so we hope to learn as much from the founders and management at our investments as they might learn from our playbooks!
I love staying active, whether it’s through reformer pilates, boxing, or long walks to the Golden Gate Bridge with my German Shepherd mix, Emmie. Every Sunday, I pick up pho (something I’ve coined Sunday “pho-n day”) from my favorite hole-in-the-wall Vietnamese restaurant in San Francisco.
