quick left logoBOULDER - Quick Left, a provider of software development services and tools, announced it has raised $500,000 from Seattle-based Lighter Capital.

Quick Left said it will use the funding to expand its product development and align its suite of products with the Agile programming tools from Sprintly, a recent merger partner.

"We are really excited to work with a firm like Lighter Capital, who understands and values our unique business model, which is made up of a software consulting arm and a product arm," said Ingrid Alongi, Quick Left CEO.

"The injection of capital will enable us to accelerate growth in one of our newest product lines, which will be a great compliment to Sprintly."

In January, Quick Left merged with Portland and San Francisco-based Sprintly, makers of development tools that provide actionable and real-time intelligence for software managers who might require insight into the development team process.

Founded in 2008, Quick Left has experienced tremendous growth, doubling in size and revenue year-over-year since 2013.

"The merger of Sprintly and Quick Left brings a lot of synergy and possibilities for growth," said BJ Lackland, Lighter Capital CEO.

"We really like how well the product arm compliments the consulting arm and are excited about funding their product development.

"The mobile space is explosive and the management team at Quick Left is a group of smart and experienced entrepreneurs. We are thrilled to be playing a role in their success."
