PEGCC Releases ECN Case Study

A new video by the Private Equity Growth Capital Council showcases how Florida-based Emergency Communications Network (ECN) was able to grow and innovate thanks to a partnership with private equity firm The Riverside Company. The video was released as part of the PEGCC’s ongoing Private Equity at Work campaign.

A high-speed outbound notification service, ECN disseminates updates and alerts to affected communities when disasters strike. From working with law enforcement to locate missing persons to communicating with officials during Hurricane Sandy in 2012, communities across the world depend on ECN to provide real-time updates during emergency situations.

With operational expertise from The Riverside Company, ECN was able to expand its business and staff, and offer new, innovative solutions to the communities the company serves. The Riverside Company led ECN through four strategic acquisitions in order to expand its capabilities and footprint across the country.
