zLinq raises Series B round to grow its Communications Lifecycle Management platform

Denver, CO. — December 13, 2022 — zLinq, the platform for communications lifecycle management, has raised a Series B growth funding round.

The round was led by McCarthy Capital out of their Emerging Growth Strategy.

zLinq was founded to help multi-location enterprises buy, manage, and optimize connectivity, Unified Communications, Collaboration and Contact Center solutions.  zLinq was recently named the third-fastest growing company in Colorado in the small business category by the Denver Business Journal.

zLinq’s rapid growth demonstrates the evolution of an industry that has been underserved by technology for decades.  “Enterprises today are shackled by poor service from providers and the legacy drag of old technologies”, said Tatiana Finkelsteyn, CEO of zLinq.  “Communications is the circulatory system of every business and one of the largest IT budget categories, and it is poised for transformation in unprecedented way. zLinq plans to play a major part in this transformation by becoming a market leader through a unique combination of its business model and proprietary software. Considering the recent uncertainty of the overall technology sector, zLinq’s 300%+ growth rate over the past two years and our Series B funding from McCarthy Capital gives us the proof points and resources to begin a new phase of accelerated growth with a strong partner that shares our values.”

zLinq will use the funding to scale its operations, further invest in SaaS product development, and hire additional team members. This investment will expand the value the Company already provides its clients.

“We are excited to partner with the team at zLinq,” said BJ Hansen, Managing Director at McCarthy Capital. “zLinq has a proven track record of increasing employee efficiency and reducing communications expenditures. Their focus on several key mission critical industries including healthcare, manufacturing, and financial services make them especially valuable to clients. We look forward to supporting zLinq’s growth and continued efforts to be the leading Communication Lifecycle Management platform.”
