Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 11, 2016
Teakwood Capital, a Dallas, Texas private equity firm, today announced it has been named a finalist in the Investment Catalyst category as part of the 16th annual Tech Titans Awards. The Tech Titans Awards recognize outstanding technology companies and individuals in North Texas who have made significant contributions to their industries over the past year.
“With seven completed investments in the Metroplex since Teakwood’s inception in 2005, the firm continues to be active in generating strategic investment opportunities across Texas,” said Shawn Kelly, Managing Director at Teakwood Capital. “Our firm has a stellar track record of creating viable and productive investment opportunities, which is evidenced by the performance of our portfolio companies to date. We are honored to be recognized by this year’s Tech Titans Awards program.”
The Investment Catalyst category recognizes organizations for completing significant technology-related investment transactions that will impact and deliver significant long-term prosperity for the D/FW Metroplex. In early 2016, Teakwood Capital saw a potentially disruptive opportunity for the payroll industry in UK-based iiPay, and in February made a growth capital investment in the cloud-based payroll services company to further enhance operational infrastructure related to iiPay’s global technology platform that serves more than 250 clients and payrolls in over 120 countries.
“The Tech Titans Awards are the premier recognition of innovative technology companies and individuals who contribute to the vibrancy and success of North Texas,” said Bill Sproull, President and CEO of Tech Titans. “These finalists are an elite group who make a difference building tomorrow’s technology community with their innovation, leadership and advocacy.
