Matt Watson Stackify Product & Company Updates

Sprint, along with Red Nova Labs, is providing a platform for local Kansas City based Tech Entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their companies to people outside the tech community. The Venture Friday meetup is part of a series of monthly gatherings hosted by Red Nova Labs called Venture Fridays, where the startup community of Kansas City and surrounding areas is invited to network during a casual after-work happy hour. Existing or aspiring entrepreneurs of all types and ages are invited.

No worries, no SPAM. Opt-out anytime.

For this month’s Startup Roundup event, Red Nova Labs is partnering with Sprint to help familiarize the startup community with Sprint’s growing support of Kansas City entrepreneurship. The meetup will be hosted at Sprint’s Overland Park campus in the company’s Winter Garden facility.

Matt Watson, Founder and CEO of Kansas City-based Stackify, a company dedicated to agile support for agile developers, is excited about the growth of the area’s tech startup companies. “As a new company involved in local entrepreneurial and startup events as well as ventures, this is an exciting time. Smaller companies get the recognition and opportunities needed to grow through great exposure like Red Nova Labs and Sprint are doing”.

Stackify has been attending startup events in the greater Kansas City area as well as developer conferences to showcase their technology, allowing companies unique development/production environment access alleviating key pain points for software and application server administration

About Stackify: Stackify was founded in January 2012 by Matt Watson. Matt was previously the founder and CTO of VinSolutions which was sold to AutoTrader.com in 2011. As the leader of a rapidly growing software service provider, he learned a lot about the current challenges of supporting enterprise applications. He noticed that agile development had caused his developers to be much more involved in day to day IT operations, but his team lacked the tools and server access to do it efficiently. He founded Stackify to create a suite of tools designed specifically for developers to improve their ability to support, manage, and monitor their enterprise applications. Stackify is expanding the definition of DevOps beyond application deployment to now include application support. Stackify is funded by the Watson Technology Group.
