Alcuin exits Glide Technologies

Alcuin Capital Partners is pleased to announce that it has exited its investment in Glide Technologies, a leading London-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider specialising in corporate communications and reputation management, in a sale to NASDAQ OMX. Glide Technologies will be integrated into NASDAQ OMX’s Corporate Solutions to create the first and only fully-integrated workflow solution for investor relations and public relations professionals. Alcuin first backed Glide Technologies and its CEO, Sam Phillips, in 2008.


Glide Technologies was founded in 2003 to provide online newsrooms to large corporate customers such as Sony, Honda, NBC Universal and PwC. From there, the business expanded its offering to include journalist relationship management, content management, contact databases, distribution and coverage-tracking.


As the Internet continued to influence the media and communications landscape, Glide Technologies developed tools to manage social media and blogger relations. The company has recently developed its latest product, GlideIntelligence, as a real-time high-volume sentiment analysis measurement platform that encompasses both traditional and social media.
