In addition, the company is now over 500 employees strong worldwide.
Netradyne’s momentum is further bolstered by its international growth, currently operating in the U.S., India, Canada, UK, Australia, and New Zealand. With this recent debt financing, Netradyne will expand its international growth to Mexico, and four European countries including France, Germany, Italy, and Spain by early 2023.
“Our continued momentum is a testament to Netradyne’s focus on helping fleets succeed with industry-leading safety technology,” said Avneesh Agrawal, co-founder, and CEO of Netradyne. “After five years in business we have set some unprecedented market-leading best practices, and this round of funding from SVB will help propel us forward.”
“It has been a pleasure to work closely with Avneesh and the Netradyne team over the past several years to support their continued growth and expansion,” said Eric Otterson, Managing Director for Silicon Valley Bank in San Diego. “Netradyne’s fleet safety and tracking solutions are great examples of the innovative solutions and technologies being developed right here in San Diego. Our goal is to empower Netradyne, and the broader San Diego tech ecosystem, with the right financing, services, and connection to move their businesses forward.”
