Enlightenment Invests in System High

Enlightenment Capital has made an investment in System High Corporation, a provider of proactive protection, security engineering, counterintelligence, and cybersecurity services to government and commercial customers.

System High was founded in 2005 and is headquartered in Chantilly, VA with an additional office in Colorado Springs, CO (www.systemhigh.com).

“System High will serve as the initial investment of a new Enlightenment platform, which will provide mission-critical protection of the technology that underpins many of the most sensitive efforts within the defense, intelligence, and commercial sectors,” said Jason Rigoli, a partner of Enlightenment Capital.  “We look forward to working with the leadership team to drive the company’s growth as they continue to play an integral role in this special arena.”

Kirk Blubaugh, the founder of System High, will join the company board of directors, remain a shareholder, and act as a strategic advisor to the company. “Enlightenment is an ideal partner and will be instrumental in helping execute our new long-range strategic plan,” said Mr. Blubaugh.

“System High continues to attract the best professionals in our business space, and our customers benefit from our team’s focus on supporting our clients’ security goals,” said Rob Howe, System High’s newly appointed CEO and President. “I am proud to partner with Enlightenment and the System High family of professionals, which are passionate about preserving our national security.”

“System High sits at the critical intersection of defense innovation and IP protection,” said Devin Talbott, a managing partner of Enlightenment Capital.  “We plan to support management and invest in the company’s continued momentum – both organically and through M&A.”

Enlightenment Capital provides senior debt, mezzanine debt, and equity to middle market companies in the aerospace, defense & government sector. The firm was founded in 2012 and is headquartered in Chevy Chase, MD (www.enlightenment-cap.com).
