Raptor Technologies 

Raptor Technologies provides a visitor-management system to public and private schools. Visitors provide their driver’s license at the front desk, and the school captures their information, checks it against Raptor's proprietary database of registered sex offenders and local restraining orders, and accepts or rejects the visitor. Jim Vesterman, a Wharton MBA and former Marine Special Forces officer, acquired Raptor in 2011. The company serves over 24,000 schools nationwide, and was growing 40% year-over-year in 2018.

In every stage, Jim and Coley went beyond the call of duty. My success within the Search Fund model is indebted to their guidance.
