There are 301 industry-focused software companies in Arizona right now on Gregslist.com/Phoenix. That’s half of all B2B software companies in the state.
For the first 20 years of my career in software, there were almost no vertical software companies–those that served a single industry like hospitals or fitness studios.
Making good software back then was at least 10X more expensive compared to today. It was just impractical to build a serious software business that served only a small industry.
But that has changed. Business software is now much easier and to create, thanks to modern cloud platforms, APIs, and open-source code.
Vertical software is one of the biggest trends in B2B SaaS in the last 10 years.
Check out all the software companies in Phoenix that serve specific industries.
