Harren invests in Velosio

Columbus, Ohio-based Velosio, a provider of business management solutions for companies, has secured an undisclosed amount of funding. The investor was Harren Equity Partners.


Velosio, a technology partner specializing in business management solutions for small and medium-sized companies and larger enterprises, is excited to announce it has received a capital investment from Harren Equity Partners (“Harren”), a private equity firm dedicated to the growth and development of industry-leading companies through the creation of strong partnerships.

Velosio, created a year ago from the merger of two leading Microsoft Dynamics partners, SBS and Socius, with a goal to build a growth-oriented organization, offers the entire Microsoft Dynamics business solution portfolio and NetSuite, along with the Office 365 family, Azure cloud services and a host of supporting offerings. As such, Velosio helps its clients with enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), productivity and business intelligence, to name but a few key solutions. Together with Harren, Velosio will further their growth and advance strategic goals of becoming the leading Microsoft Dynamics Partner in North America.

“Velosio has energetic plans for 2019 to grow the business across our entire portfolio of solutions, practices, and channels,” said Jim Bowman, Chairman of Velosio. “To ensure that we had the right financial partner to help us drive that growth, we undertook an exhaustive search last year to find a partner who not only had the financial resources but someone who also shared our vision of what Velosio can become. We have gotten to know the Harren team over the last several months and we are excited that the investment professionals at Harren share our enthusiasm of, and confidence in, the future of Velosio, and will provide us a capital structure to grow at an even faster pace.”

Lee Monahan, Partner of Harren, stated “Through this financial investment, and working to execute strategic plans in partnership with Velosio leadership, Harren is excited about Velosio’s ability to accelerate their growth through new resources, acquisitions and business partnerships.”
