Individuals at T-Mobile, Kaseya, Google Cloud, Atlassian and more made our channel people making waves list this week. Our roundup is comprised of the most-read stories that appear on our website. As a publication we then highlight the individuals that are most prolific in the articles.

That includes Mike Sievert, CEO of T-Mobile, which scooped up Mint Mobile for nearly $1.4 billion. People have spent much time discussing actor Ryan Reynolds’ involvement in the deal. But Sievert is truly pulling the strings here.

When it comes to an unsung hero, look no further than Dante White, founder of Oppuous Technologies. In regard to the Silicon Valley Bank crisis, White told our reporter that he’s avoided traditional funding methods like private equity and venture capital to scale his business. He’s embracing nontraditional sources of financing – such as family and crowdfunding – to diversify his funding streams,

“I’m in the middle of business funding myself right now. I’m in the middle of closing a pretty sizable debt instrument. I just hope and pray that the SVB thing doesn’t sideline that,” White told Channel Futures.

Finally, if you think you know Fred Voccola, CEO at Kaseya, you may want to review our feature story about the man. What’s behind his success? Find out more about the CEO we named as Influencer of the year.
