Most Successful US Video Surveillance Startups

By John Honovich, Published on Aug 18, 2009

From a financial perspective, Sypixx is probably the most successful US video surveillance startup post 9/11. Acquired by Cisco for $51 M in 2006 [link no longer available], Sypixx was acquired only a few years after launch and at a significant profit for its investors. 

Sypixx demonstrates two key qualities of successful video surveillance startups: (1) founders with deep expertise in the market and (2) no VC funding - Sypixx funded by employees and angels.

Pete Jankowski, the founder of Sypixx is now working on a new startup called Next Level Security Systems. It's still in stealth mode but you can see Pete's public LinkedIn profile [link no longer available].
