This investment will allow us to continue to deliver best-in-class solutions to empower our growing customer base,” said GrowthZone CEO Scott Juranek. “In seeking an investment partner, it was important to find a like-minded group that would support our vision to invest deeply in our product and provide world-class customer support.  We are confident we have found that in Greenridge.”
