July 23, 2015 - Innovation Park at Notre Dame today announced an Acceleration Award ceremony beginning at 4:00pm Thursday, July 23, 2015 at Innovation Park. The event recognizes client company Trek10’s rapid commercial advancement and transition to Union Station Technology Center in South Bend. Due to space limitations, attendance at the event is by invitation.
Trek10 provides consulting and managed 24/7 support for cloud-based deployments, such as Amazon Web Services, with a particular focus on DevOps and infrastructure management. Earlier this year, the company completed its seed funding round from an investor syndicate that included Elevate Ventures and The Judd Leighton Foundation. The funds allow Trek10 to accelerate key talent acquisition to support rapid customer adoption across the Midwest.
“This has been a very exciting time for Trek10, graduating from a bootstrapped startup to a funded, high-growth company” notes CEO Andy Warzon. “Innovation Park has been critical in this transition, providing space and services as well as invaluable guidance on strategy and fundraising. We wouldn’t be where we are today without them. We are looking forward to even better times ahead, as we become leaders in our industry and contribute to the exciting community of technology startups in this area.”
“We are excited by the rapid progress Trek10 has made,” said David Brenner, Executive Director of Innovation Park at Notre Dame. “Their focus and commitment has helped yield rapid acceleration in such a short time and we look forward to following their progress in South Bend.”
