“We chose Tritium because of their experience and track record of helping to grow and scale companies like ours,” said John Laramie, co-founder and CEO of Project X. “We looked for a capital partner who understood our unique positioning in the Out-of-Home market and had the strategic skillset to help us navigate investments in our team and technology as well as strategic acquisitions.
