K16 has proven rather quickly that there is a vast commercial application for their technology. We’re excited to partner not only in a capital markets and strategic advisory capacity but also as an investor in the company.”
“After spending a great deal of time getting to know K16’s management team, long-term strategy, and technology, we’re very excited about the opportunity to partner,” said Greg Finkelstein, Managing Director at Tyton Partners. “There is a clear need for cleaner, faster, and more cost-effective data migrations between platforms as well as integration options that offer a more ‘real-time’ look at all the data in an institution’s tech ecosystem. The applications for this technology are endless, and I’m excited to personally work closely with the K16 team to drive this forward.”
