"Cypress Growth Capital's non-dilutive funding allowed me to retain more of my founder’s equity and their team's deep operating experience in the SaaS market helped me scale the company quickly.” Said Stackify CEO Matt Watson.

Netreo is a provider of network monitoring, analytics, and intelligence tools. Matt assumes the role of CTO for Netreo effective immediately and will focus on the ongoing development of customer-centric technology solutions.

“Matt had a very successful exit with his previous company and clearly understands the importance of preserving equity,” remarked Cypress’ Vik Thapar. “The sale of Stackify to Netreo demonstrates Matt’s exceptional entrepreneurial skills and is yet another example of the effectiveness of our unique form of growth capital for emerging tech companies.”

Over the past decade, Cypress Growth Capital has invested in 40 software and tech-enabled services companies. Like Stackify, more than 80% of the companies with whom we partner go on to achieve a strategic acquisition or a subsequent growth equity raise / recapitalization.
