Amsterdam, The Netherlands, November 11th, 2020 — The carrier neutral, next-generation global connectivity company GNX is excited to announce support and funding from tech-investors Sjoerd Rietberg, the former co-CEO of Flow Traders, and Jan Willem Meijer, the co-founder of Custom Connect, which was acquired by GTT Communications in 2017.
The investors will support GNX as it continues to grow its carrier-neutral connectivity business and extend its client reach across the globe. The funding will also further accelerate the development of LARA, GNX’s proprietary software platform which enables clients to source the best connectivity and consolidate their network services into one workflow, one invoice and one contract with GNX.
“We started GNX because of this huge demand in the market for a carrier-neutral partner for global connectivity,” co-founder Rutger Bevaart explained. “Two years later, with clients all over the world and growing, we’re still proving that to be true. Our next-generation approach to connectivity brings together over 3,000 local carriers across the globe, simplifying the sourcing of connectivity, eliminating unnecessary costs and improving operations by being a virtual extension of our customers’ network team.”
“We’re delivering services that make connectivity more agile and flexible while providing customers with a truly global approach to sourcing connectivity,” co-founder Rick Mur added. “We’re thrilled to have Sjoerd and Jan Willem on board to help us continue to grow this company and extend our next-gen services even further.”
Sjoerd Rietberg says he and Jan Willem strongly believe that the connectivity market needs to mature in the coming years, and that GNX is the company to help usher in this new era. “GNX delivers a transparent service in a market that has long been characterized by ambiguity. From the start, Jan Willem and I felt GNX’s approach was the future. It also felt like a natural cooperation, especially because it’s in the founder’s DNA to deliver high-quality, and long-term support at a competitive price.”
GNX is a carrier neutral, next-generation global connectivity service company that is cutting out the carriers, vendors and pushy salespeople who are more interested in selling their solutions than managing yours.
Supporting businesses that need a more agile, flexible and global approach to connectivity, GNX provides a unique, carrier-neutral approach that enables clients to source solutions that best fit their requirements. With clear and transparent pricing for underlay connectivity services like ethernet, dark-fiber, DIA internet access or 4G/5G, GNX customers can build better global WANs.
