Colorado Companies to Watch 2015: Financial
Denver – sanitysolutions.com – Founded: 2004
With the glut of data accumulating by the second, experts are needed to make sense of it all. That’s where Sanity Solutions comes in – to put some reason to the madness with customizable and easy-to-integrate storage, protection, security, computing and infrastructure. With its offerings, data becomes increasingly available and less likely to be lost, all while bringing costs down. Rather than selling, account executives at Sanity focus on problem-solving. Sanity was recently named Dell’s Partner of the Year for the second year in a row. Revenues have escalated dramatically over the last number of years.
KEEP WATCHING FOR: Broadly speaking, “With data exploding in general, that means a lot of things,” CEO Jason Cherveny says.
Denver – ninjatrader.com – Founded: 2004
Started as a private trading platform in the basement of founding partner Raymond Deux’s Washington Park home, NinjaTrader has become a leading developer of high-performance trading software for active traders and more than 40,000 global users. With advanced charting, market analytics, trading system development and trade simulation, the company seeks to optimize trader’s abilities to manage their potential profitability. Traditionally a software company, last year NinjaTrader – which has grown to 90 employees from just more than 30 a few years ago – broke into the brokerage biz after the purchase of a Chicago-based firm.
KEEP WATCHING FOR: Options and equities are a few years off, but NinjaTrader 8 will be released by the end of this year, adding functionality to the existing platform, such as multi-trading. The team intends to double its employment opportunities in Denver during the next three to five years. In addition, the company is on the verge of a new product pipeline with a focus on functional evolution and feature expansion to maintain Ninja’s market leadership position.
