Tenzing exits Smoothwall to Family Zone, an Australian headquartered cyber safety software provider.
Smoothwall is a technology provider in UK education, and has been expanding its core product suite into the Cloud, and building out new categories, including a managed monitoring product and record-keeping for safeguarding.
Guy Gillon, Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Tenzing, said: “We’re super proud to have completed our second exit and honoured to have played a part in Smoothwall’s growth. Working with Georg and the management team has been a true partnership, and we’re delighted to have achieved our shared vision of Smoothwall’s potential. We part ways with the company positioned to win in a large and growing market and look forward to the significant benefits Smoothwall will make to future generations and our wider society – it’s a true, mission-led organisation.”
Georg Ell, CEO of Smoothwall, added: “We’ve hugely benefited from the injection of investment, energy and expertise from Tenzing over the last four years; there has always been a real sense of backing us as a team. Their support has enabled us to expand the solutions we offer to our clients, and it makes me incredibly proud that, under Tenzing’s ownership, Smoothwall has grown to protect more than six million children. The management team and I are looking forward to continuing on the journey with the support of Family Zone.”
