Certiport Gets Private Equity Funding

Certiport, a provider of software training and certification services, announced late Tuesday evening that it has received an investment from a New York-based private equity firm. A dollar amount was not disclosed. However, David Saedi, Certiport's president and chief executive officer, said it was enough money to fund the company's corporate growth for the next 10 years. Certiport, which is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, credited Spire Capital with the investment. Founded in 2000, Spire Capital primarily backs companies in the information services, business services and media and communication sectors. More information »
