TrackStreet will invest its newly raised capital to further enhance next generation brand protection technologies and the acceleration of go-to-market strategies, all driven by proprietary artificial intelligence and automation technologies.

“I couldn’t be more excited about this next stage in our development as the market-leading brand protection technology platform,” stated Andrew Schydlowsky, TrackStreet Founder and CEO. “The need for intelligent and automated digital shelf management solutions is being accelerated by the rapid shift of retail sales to the Internet channel. This influx of capital will fuel additional investment in our dynamic AI-based platform, and a powerful data driven approach to driving value for partners. More than just capital, with the addition of these new investors to our extended team, we’re adding an incredible amount of game-changing marketing, sales and SaaS experience to an already world-class group of investors, which will enable us to build better product and deliver more mission-critical solutions to our partners as we aggressively expand our market.”
