About Gregslist

Gregslist started as a personal volunteer project in Phoenix in 2016. After a 30-year career in the software business, I started helping dozens of founders of software companies that I knew in Phoenix where I lived. I was finding more software companies in Phoenix than anybody knew about.

So, I created Gregslist of Phoenix software companies and shared it on my website for free. I updated the list every month, and in six years, it grew to over 800 real, active software and SaaS companies in Arizona. Then we did the same in Dallas, where I live now. Thousands of people have told me how they found jobs, raised investments, and made investments using Gregslist.


Helping Local Software Communities

Gregslist is a free resource for local software communities to connect leadership talent, job seekers, investors, and local tech experts to the crazy founders who are creating the next wave of successful software companies.

Almost 50% of all software companies on Gregslist are self-funded and bootstrapped with NO outside funding Another 30% have just a little funding from friends and friendly investors. Just 20% of funding is from institutional VC or PE funds. 

There is a large but hidden tribe of practical founders who are growing valuable software companies without big funding. But all we hear about is the VC funding game and unicorn valuations. I want to change that so more practical founders achieve their big prizes and do it their way.

Check out the Practical Founders Podcast hosted by Greg Head, with stories of serious software founders who have created valuable software companies without big funding.

There are thousands of practical founders who are winning the startup game with successful exits of $10M, $20M, $50M, or more when they sell their companies—if they ever choose to sell.
