In January 2014, Boulder-based Quick Left merged with Sprintly, a Portland- and San Francisco-based company that provides programming tools for managing software development. There’s a natural synergy between the two companies, and with the funding provided by Lighter Capital, Quick Left is ready to expand their product development and align the two product and service suites.
“We were really excited to work with a firm like Lighter Capital who understands and values our unique business model, which is made up of a software consulting arm and a product arm,” says Ingrid Alongi, Quick Left CEO-Consulting. “The injection of capital will enable us to accelerate growth in one of our newest product lines which will be a great compliment to Sprintly.”
Founded in 2008, Quick Left has experienced tremendous growth, doubling in size and revenue run rate year-over-year since 2013. The company serves clients like Red Robin and Ping Identity. They expect to continue their recent trajectory, hiring new developers in San Francisco and Portland over the coming months.
“The merger of Sprintly and Quick Left brings a lot of synergy and possibilities for growth,” says BJ Lackland, CEO of Lighter Capital. “We really like how well the product arm compliments the consulting arm, and are excited about funding their product development. The mobile space is explosive and the management team at Quick Left is a group of smart and experienced entrepreneurs. We are thrilled to be playing a role in their success.”
