KANSAS CITY, Kan., Dec. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Matt Watson, a prominent serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Full Scale, has completed a strategic buyout of his co-founder, Matt DeCoursey, acquiring full control of the company.

Full Scale, a leading software development agency, has been at the forefront of solving the tech talent shortage by matching software developers from the Philippines with growing tech companies. The company has more than 300 employees globally. The buyout represents a significant milestone in the company’s trajectory and highlights Watson’s commitment to steering Full Scale toward new heights.

“I’m happy for DeCoursey. This is what every founder works for, the big exit!” says Watson. “I’m grateful for the invaluable collaboration with Matt over the years. As CEO, DeCoursey built an incredible 8 figure business over the last five years. As the company embarks on this exciting journey, I eagerly anticipate steering Full Scale toward even greater achievements. My engineering background will help us continue to hire and train world class developers while delivering exceptional value to our clients.”

Full Scale started in 2018 as a partnership between Matt Watson and Matt DeCoursey to help their companies, Stackify and Gigabook, hire talented software developers.
