CHICAGO – Sept. 9, 2016 – Among First Analysis’s most recent new investments is StreamLink Software, the leading grant and board management software as a service provider for nonprofit and public sector clients. The $10 million Series A round, which was led by First Analysis in May, will enable StreamLink Software to further develop its market-leading products and fuel growth.
“The grant management industry is evolving rapidly, as the federal government pushes legislation and policy that call for greater transparency and accountability of funds spent,” said StreamLink Software CEO Adam Roth. “This has resulted in a significant acceleration in market demand for our platform, which allows grant recipients to manage their grants efficiently and effectively in a single cloud-based solution. We already have a market-leading product, and the additional capital will allow us to further expand our offerings and reach.”
“We are excited to add a respected firm like First Analysis to the fold, and look forward to leveraging its expertise in SaaS and human capital technology. Our partnership will further our mission of helping our clients manage their grant funds in a highly cost- and time-effective way, while ensuring strong outcomes and transparency for taxpayers,” Roth said.
First Analysis Managing Director Corey Greendale, who has joined the StreamLink Software board of directors, commented, “StreamLink Software is uniquely positioned to generate strong ROI for grant recipients and providers, as well as taxpayers. Our deep research in human capital technology revealed a substantial opportunity to create value in the public sector by unifying and streamlining grant management work processes. StreamLink Software solutions make grant recipients and administrators more effective while seamlessly capturing, analyzing, and reporting data to ensure critical funding sources aren’t jeopardized and provide intended outcomes for taxpayers.”
Greendale added, “We were impressed with the company’s unique platform and customer-centric approach, which have positioned it as an industry leader in a rapidly expanding market. We look forward to working with the management team to further the company’s leadership in the grant and board management sectors.”
