Washington Harbour Partners LP, a private investment firm that specializes in partnering with founders and management teams to unlock their next phase of growth, announced on November 15 it has acquired SIXGEN Incorporated, a cyber solutions company for the U.S. national security, intelligence, and defense communities, and critical commercial industries.
“We are thrilled to have this opportunity to partner with SIXGEN and help them continue their growth journey,” said Mina Faltas, founder and chief investment officer of Washington Harbour. “In SIXGEN, we see a company with best-in-class capabilities, outstanding reputation and qualifications, and a strong culture of excellence in delivery and commitment to the national mission.”
The acquisition of SIXGEN is a natural fit for Washington Harbour’s operational and domain expertise in high-growth companies in non-cyclical industries, including government services, defense technology, cybersecurity, software, and tech-enabled business and consumer services. SIXGEN will continue to be led by the company’s founder and CEO, Ethan Dietrich.
Faltas added, “The national security cyber domain and threat landscape is rapidly evolving, and we are aligned with Ethan’s strategic vision for SIXGEN, bringing their exceptional talent and solutions to every corner of our national cyber needs. We look forward to investing behind our shared intent to accelerate growth and make a broader impact on our nation’s security. SIXGEN is a truly innovative technology-enabled cyber firm, and it’s an honor to partner and further their position as a leader in high assurance, zero trust security.”
“Mission impact is in our DNA. The shared values we have around innovation and technological advancement create massive possibilities to shift the cyber landscape to our country’s advantage,” said Dietrich. “Our partnership with Washington Harbour will bring significant financial, strategic, and operational resources as well as global cyber expertise to help us in our next stage of evolution. Our aim is to fundamentally alter the landscape in which we operate, addressing our customers’ ever-evolving needs and serving the unique and critical missions of our government.
