Main Topic: NYC tech startup MSP acquisition/growth story

Throughout the pandemic, Electric sought out to be the antithesis of all things “Silicon Valley bro culture”. The company has seen demand skyrocket during the pandemic and actually reopened its Series B round in March and April for added funds from Dick Costolo and Adam Bain at 01 Ventures.

 

IT is not the sexiest industry, which might explain why it essentially saw no innovation for three decades, but Electric is changing that. CEO and founder, Ryan Denehy, and his executive team actively work against operating at the traditional breakneck pace of a tech startup, putting the emphasis on employee wellness and creating real change (and by that I do not mean free beer and a canned quote on Instagram).

 

Some of the initiatives they’ve implemented this year:

 

  • Part of NYTechCares, an initiative that crowd-sources funds, resources, and donations to help low-income students in NYC access e-learning opportunities.
  • Partners with The Last Mile, a non-profit organization that provides coding and technology training to the incarcerated population across the U.S., training Last Mile students on coding, general interviews, engineering interviews, and more.
  • Mandatory company-wide PTO the first Friday of every month, “No Meetings Thursdays”, and revamped employee review processes emphasizing empathy
