Capital Connect and Idaho Deal Flow Report Release
May 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MDT
The Idaho Technology Council is excited to announce the Capital Connect Series! On the third Tuesday of each month we will be showcasing a company that is thriving in Idaho!
This month Blake Hansen, from Alturas Capital, and Alison Johnson, from Holland and Hart, will be introducing the 2020 Deal Flow Report. While we can all agree it has been a challenging year, Idaho has still found itself expanding both in deals and especially revenue. We are excited to report that there were approximately 155 deals that totaled to $5.5 billion in capital flow. Although year over year (2019 versus 2020) we had close to the same number of deals, we brought in close to $800 million in capital flow this season. We are looking forward to celebrating such business success and growth from 2020.
Kount is one of our local Idaho businesses that has experienced an astounding amount of growth in the past year. In early 2021, Kount was acquired by Equifax for $640 million, which is a huge success for raising capital in Idaho. We are happy to announce that special guests from Kount, Jim Gasaway, Rich Stuppy, and Brad Wiskirchen will be joining us to share their experiences with Kount, from the start of their company in 2006, all the way up to the acquisition with Equifax in 2021. Although this deal will not be shown in the 2020 Deal Flow Report, we are thrilled to hear our guests perspectives on how the company overcame such adversity during 2020 despite all the obstacles.
