Back in November 2017, Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD) announced a $300 million strategic investment by two technology leaders, Silver Lake and LinkedIn.

Silver Lake, a premier private equity firm specializing in technology investments, brings more than capital to the table. Silver Lake also brings technical expertise and a wealth of networking in talented people, that can be applied to advance quality growth. Look for the Silver Lake representatives on CSOD’s Board to add value in the growth and management of CSOD. The Board expertise is especially important, as CSOD navigates some riptides in global software competition.

LinkedIn, a Microsoft company is also an investor, but this investor partner is part of a growing alliance between CSOD and LinkedIn on a business basis. Expect more announcements and collaboration between the two as learning, human capital management, and talent systems are pushed into new waters with better and more refined client offerings.

Bottom line, you have two important industry leaders working with CSOD on future growth, and it is more than just dollars and cents. It is a partnership of expertise with deep technological knowledge. The future should be fun!
