Bryan Stolle is a Founding Partner at Wildcat where he focuses on investments in FinTech, EdTech, quant marketing, and technology that addresses elder care. His specific areas of interest include software as a service (SaaS) and platforms that enable alternative credit, payments and insurance, as well as those that support the posy K-12 educational market and the growing elder care market. Concurrently, he is a General Partner at Mohr Davidow Ventures, which he joined in 2007.
Growing up under two generations of self-made businessmen, Bryan’s work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit is deeply rooted in his youth. As a teen, he competitively raced motocross, taking on jobs delivering newspapers and making pizzas to support his racing passion. His early love of athletics has led him to view his role in venture capital as more of a coach or mentor to entrepreneurs who are embarking on a journey he’s also taken. When not at work, Bryan is a sports fan, cheering on his teams: the Texas Longhorns, Golden State Warriors and San Francisco Giants.
A serial entrepreneur, Bryan created more than $1 billion in realized liquidity for his investors as a founder. He oversaw the creation, go-to-market and market growth of product and service offerings that have achieved more than $2 billion in revenues, and has raised more than $1 billion in venture, public market and investment management capital. As founder and CEO of Agile Software (formerly, NASDAQ: AGIL), Bryan led the creation of a new category now called product lifecycle management (PLM). He led the company through a public offering and secondary offering that raised over $500 million. He executed on almost two dozen private and public M&A transactions, and steered a major strategy shift that led to the eventual acquisition of the company by Oracle.
Bryan sits on the advisory boards of University of Texas McCombs School of Business, The UT-Austin Texas Venture Labs and the Santa Clara University Leavey School of Business.
Bryan received a B.A. in Business Administration and an M.B.A. from the University of Texas at Austin.
