Evolution’s Entrepreneurs: Knowledge Center

Having the great pleasure of speaking with hundreds of successful entrepreneurs each year is what inspires all of us at Evolution and is reflected in our core values. We are truly humbled to have the opportunity to partner with a select few of the small business owners we speak with, helping them to implement a foundation for scale through The 5 Pillars of Business Freedom (SM).

Knowledge Center Incident Management SystemOne such entrepreneur we have had the honor of partnering with is John Degory, the founder & CEO of Knowledge Center, an incident management software firm based in Pittsburgh, PA. Recently noted for their involvement with Pope Francis’ historic visit to Philadelphia, Knowledge Center’s Incident Management System was used throughout the papal visit, empowering Emergency Management Coordinators (EMCs) to track the location of resources, collect data and document activities real-time. The Knowledge Center tools also allowed for seamless collaboration with the Department of Health, the region’s 75+ hospitals, and the EMA community. Seeing the preparation, commitment and ultimate success of this effort by the entire Knowledge Center team was amazing.

As a result of their tremendous efforts and success, Knowledge Center has been recently awarded several accolades, including:

2015 Inc. 5000 Honoree:  An annual ranking by Inc. of the fastest-growing private companies in America.

– 2015 Smart 50 Greater Pittsburgh Honoree:  This Smart Business award recognizes the top executives of the 50 smartest companies in the region for their ability to effectively build and lead successful organizations.

We would like to congratulate John and the entire Knowledge Center team for a tremendous 2015 and look forward to the year ahead.  We are proud of our partnership with each of our growth companies as they create lasting businesses with great cultures that will continue to flourish well past our involvement.

Access our case studies to see examples of our partner companies who have created a foundation for growth and continue to find success well past our exit.
