One year ago StackPath, a rapidly growing provider of secured cloud services built at the cloud’s edge and founded by SoftLayer founder Lance Crosby, launched StackPath Propel – a program that provides resources, insight, and expert advice to early-stage companies at no cost to them.

“It’s been part of StackPath culture since day one to support the startup community and it was a great year for Propel,” said James Leaverton, VP Ecosystems, StackPath. “We’ve helped a lot, we’ve learned a lot, and now want to increase our offerings so we can help even more – when one startup succeeds we all learn and succeed with them.”
In addition, the StackPath ecosystems team will continue to share with Propel members its startup insight and expertise. Everything from making strategic introductions to talent, investors, and peers, to brainstorming business practices, to reviewing pitch decks, StackPath Propel was created to help new companies with what they need to grow and thrive.
“StackPath Propel provides the rare combination of expert resources and accessibility, and it transformed our company,” said Matt Waite, Founder of Apres.io, accompany that was accepted into the Propel program. “We worked together on several key issues that scaled our business, and I was impressed with StackPath’s ability to translate difficult, early stage problems into tailored solutions. The resources and services they offer show their understanding of early stage needs and have been impactful beyond the bottom line. Propel would be an asset to any early stage startup.”
