The investment is designed to provide growth capital to accelerate the company’s product development efforts and make infrastructure enhancements to support its rapid growth.

Under its CEO, Pratik Roychoudhury, Shield Watch has steadily grown its core MSP business. Recently, Shield Watch introduced a unique product suite that allows mid-market companies to execute and maintain transformative digital strategies at a fraction of the historical cost.
Pratik Roychoudhury stated, “We have been looking for the ideal capital partner for the past year and believe there is a great fit with Skyway’s operating philosophy. Scott Feuer and Bryan Crino really understand this space. We are already benefitting from the financial and intellectual capital that the Skyway Group brings to bear.”
Bryan Crino, Managing Partner of Skyway Group remarked, “We are excited about Shield Watch’s differentiated strategy and believe that Shield Watch will continue to be a strong market leader. The company’s ManageIT, IntegrateIT and TransformIT product strategy provides a significant value proposition to its customers and competitive advantage for the company in the MSP market space.” Scott Feuer, Skyway Group’s Managing Partner added, “We at Skyway are very impressed with Pratik and the team he has assembled.
