Stratifyd Opening New Headquarters in Uptown Charlotte


Stratifyd, a technology company that provides AI-powered data analytics solutions to enterprise companies, has relocated their company headquarters to The Foundry at 619 S Cedar St., Charlotte, NC 28202. This relocation is a result of the company’s rapid growth and expansion. The new location provides over 7,500 square feet of office space for over 40 software developers, researchers, and sales and marketing professionals.

“We’re very excited about the move,” said Derek Wang, Stratifyd’s Founder & CEO. “Our company grew rapidly in 2017 and will continue to grow rapidly in 2018. We needed space to accommodate this growth.”

Stratifyd nearly doubled the number of employees, doubled the customer base, and tripled revenue in 2017. The company recently raised over $7 million in Series A funding, which has accelerated product development, increased opportunities and partnerships, and enabled Stratifyd to expand the research team. This funding has enabled the company to push the boundaries of AI capabilities in enterprise analytics. Stratifyd has a strong research foundation as the company was founded by data scientists from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte.

“True research teams are rare at tech startups,” said Wang, “but they serve as powerful key differentiators by replicating the conditions that unlock greater innovation at colleges and universities.”

Wang started the company in 2015 with Li Yu, PhD, VP of Visualization, and Thomas Kraft, VP of Engineering. Wang earned a PhD in Computer Science from UNCC and was named the Associate Director of the Charlotte Visualization Center at UNCC, which applies interactive visualization and analytics to solve problems in science, engineering, medicine, business, design, and the arts.

Stratifyd’s leadership team grew in 2017 with Brad Fleeman, the VP of Global Sales, joining the company from CA Technologies, Kevin O’Dell, the VP of Solutions, joining from Cloudera, Sterling Scott, the Director of Marketing, joining from MapAnything, and Cara Walters, the Director of Creative, also joining from MapAnything.

The company also hired Catherine Guo, the VP of Operations, to lead the company’s global expansion.

Stratifyd is an active and engaged member of the Charlotte tech startup community. The company participated in PitchBreakfast at uptown Charlotte’s Packard Place in 2015 and has since won the Charlotte Area Technology Collaborative (CATC) Blue Diamond Award for Business Value in Analytics and Big Data and the AvidXchange Innovation Award at StartCharlotte LIVE! 2017.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be Thursday, April 19th, 2018 at The Foundry, 619 S Cedar St., Charlotte, NC 28202 from 5 to 7pm. Stratifyd will host the event in collaboration with the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. Charlotte Chamber President and CEO Bob Morgan will speak at the event.
