CloudCheckr startup gets $2M in funding

Rochester Business Journal
April 11, 2013

CloudCheckr Inc., a Rochester startup that creates Web-based analytics software that allows companies to track their cloud data usage, has secured $2 million in financing.

The funding was led by investment firm Garrison Fund L.P. in Rochester and Tampa, Fla.-based Genesee Capital LLC.

“Our disciplined strategy is predicated on only investing in companies with best-in-class and outstanding management teams,” said Todd Mirabella, a chief investment officer at Garrison Fund. “With CloudCheckr, we get both.”

CloudCheckr was founded in November 2011 by Aaron Klein, a financial management veteran, and Aaron Newman, the founder of Techrigy Inc., a Pittsford-based social media tracking company he sold for more than $4 million.

Up until now, CloudCheckr has been funded by Newman and Klein. Newman said the company will use the money from its latest round of funding to expand its sales and marketing efforts.
