Columbia Capital leads $23 million round in Seattle's 2nd Watch

11/05/2013

Alexandria-based Columbia Capital has led a $23 million growth round in 2nd Watch Inc., a Seattle startup that helps its customers shift their IT operations to Amazon Web Services.

The investment adds to Columbia's already substantial portfolio in cloud infrastructure and services, which also includes Bethesda-based Virtusteam (whose UFC-based marketing approach we also wrote about Tuesday), Cloud Sherpas and Canara.

The two-and-a-half-year-old 2nd Watch will use the cash to stand up new offices across the country, and will "probably end up with three offices up and down the East Coast" by the end of next year, Matt Gerber, executive vice president of sales and marketing, told the Puget Sound Business Journal.

Madrona Venture Group joined Columbia Capital in the financing.
