Mainsail Partners has made a growth equity investment in Boostlingo, a technology provider of language interpretation management software built for language service companies, health care providers and other businesses with on demand and in person interpreting needs.
“This partnership with Mainsail is an important step in our mission to deliver seamless access to language support services,” said Bryan Forrester, co-founder and CEO of Boostlingo. “We believe Boostlingo is well positioned to be a leader in our markets. The company has nearly quadrupled interpretation minutes year-over-year and continues to add resources to keep up with the rapid pace. We believe Mainsail will be an excellent partner as we continue to scale.”
“We are excited to begin working with Bryan and the team at Boostlingo in this growing market,” said David Farsai, principal at Mainsail Partners.
Michael Anderson, partner at Mainsail Partners, added, “We believe Boostlingo has shown that they can be disruptive by using a modern technology stack, clean and beautiful software, and a very large wraparound network of interpreters to serve their customers. We’re excited to help the management team any way that we can.”
In addition, Boostlingo has hired Merrie Wallace as chief revenue officer, leading the national sales, account management and marketing team to support growth of the company’s interpretation management and delivery platform and services. Previously, she was chief revenue Officer for FairWarning and PerfectServe.
“We believe the company found the right leader at the right time in Merrie Wallace. Merrie has a robust history of building teams who have driven and sustained significant bookings and revenue growth, as well as employee and client satisfaction across multiple organizations,” said Forrester.
