Apprenda is an American computer software company that provides platform-as-a-service (PaaS) software to help companies create, update, and manage private and public cloud-based applications. Apprenda was founded in 2007 in Clifton Park, New York, by Matt Ammerman, Sinclair Schuller, and Abraham Sultan. Schuller and Sultan both graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Ammerman graduated from University at Albany, SUNY. Schuller, the companys CEO, previously worked in IT, developing applications for large banks. In June 2014, Apprenda moved from Clifton Park to Troy, New York, in part to be closer to Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. With headquarters in New York rather than California, Forbes has called Apprenda "the anti-Silicon Valley startup." The company has a second office in New York City, with plans to eventually expand into Europe.
