Originally allocated for $150 mn, the round was oversubscribed by $100 mn. The firm plans to use the finance to bolster its platform globally, while also continuing to expand its offering across every recurring revenue vertical including property management companies, direct to consumer subscription (physical products), telecommunications, sports and entertainment, biotech, healthcare, and VC fund management fees.
