Elsewhere Partners has named Rita Selvaggi as an operating partner to support investment activities and its existing portfolio.
Most recently, Selvaggi was CEO of ActivTrak, an Elsewhere portfolio company. She is also the former chief marketing officer of AlienVault. Prior to that, she was senior vice president of marketing at SolarWinds.
Based in Austin, Texas, Elsewhere Partners invests in B2B software companies that are located outside of traditional venture capital hubs. It closed on $175 million for Elsewhere Partners II in May 2022.
“There is tremendous opportunity for strategic investments in our niche focus area – software outliers with proven market fit and early market traction,” Elsewhere founder and partner Chris Pacitti said in a statement. “Deepening our longstanding relationship by adding Rita Selvaggi to our investment team will help ensure we are ready to uncover, invest in and guide slow-burn start-ups into predictable growth businesses primed to properly scale.”
