To find out more about their platform, we sat down with Brian Fitzgerald from PandaDoc:
Q: Brian, you’ve recently announced $15M in Series B Round; could you tell us something more?
A: Yes, we are very excited about closing our Series B, as the investment will help us scale our development and operations significantly. And we couldn’t have asked for better partners.
Investors in our Series B include Rembrandt Venture Partners, Microsoft Ventures, HubSpot, EBRD (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development) and Altos Ventures – who also participated in our Series A as lead investor. Our Series B lead investor is Rembrandt Venture Partners.
We took great care in choosing our investors. We chose partners that understand our business and the market we are in, and that also bring more to the table than just cash.
· Rembrandt brings great experience and insights, as well as a treasure trove of connections.
· Microsoft VC understands our business, and they have a vast ecosystem for our solution to flourish in. Microsoft is already one of our integration partners.
· HubSpot is one of our best business partners, and we are excited to expand that relationship.
· Altos Ventures has been with us from the beginning, so that fact that they are reinvesting speaks volumes.
· And because we are a global technology company, EBRD made perfect sense.
For our Series A, which closed in July of 2015, we raised $5 million. Series A investors included Altos Ventures, TMT Investments, CEO of Quicken Eric Dunn, Kima Ventures and a few others.
To date, we have raised $20 million in venture funding.
