Pittsburgh, PA — Pittsburgh’s tech scene is on the rise and GrayMatter, a technology and consulting company headquartered there, believes a recent investment in their business will significantly contribute to the technology surge taking place in the city.
Co-founder, CEO and Carnegie Mellon graduate Jim Gillespie says a substantial investment by private equity firm Hamilton Robinson Capital Partners will allow GrayMatter to rapidly expand its efforts to digitally transform industrial operations and empower people at forward-thinking companies across the United States and Canada.
