Greenphire to add 35 at new KofP HQ
Thanks to January investment by Schlachet's Riverside Capital
Flush with new investor cash, clinical-trials payment-technology provider Greenphire says it has moved to an 18,000 sq. ft. office at 630 Allendale Road, King of Prussia, from a smaller location nearby. The company employs 65, and plans to have over 100 by the end of 2015, a spokeswoman told me, expanding on a statement by Jennifer Peters, Greephire's "Chief Experience Officer."
The company said in January it has raised an undisclosed amount from investor Loren Schlachet's New York-based Riverside Capital. Greenphire raised $5.8 million from investors in 2011 and 2012, according to SEC Form D filings, see them here. The 2011 investors included FirstMark Capital, whose founder Gerald Poch joined the board. Greenphire's payment-systems partners include Citibank and Wilmington-based The Bancorp, among others,
Greenphire was backed earlier by Pennsylvania's state-funded Ben Franklin Technology Partners. More on Greenphire's bosses Sam Whitaker, John Samar and Dr. Neil Rotheham at Tom Paine's Philly Tech News here.
