Tool provider to expand San Francisco operations

Team collaboration and management software provider Hansoft has raised $8.4 million in funding.

The investment round was led by Nordic venture capital firm Creandum, which was previously the first institutional investor in Spotify. A small group of bay area private investors also contributed to the funding round.

The funds will be used to accelerate the firm's growth around the world, and staff up its San Francisco-based sales, marketing and customer success teams. Hansoft is also on the look out for a chief growth officer at its US office.

“We are not only helping our customers being more Agile but also applying Agile practices in how we organise all our activities internally, not only the development team but also the executive team and the growth team here in San Francisco," said Hansoft CEO Patric Palm.

"Our Agile, and very Swedish, way of working with a flat organisation, doesn’t suit everyone, but at Hansoft we are passionate about the excellence it brings out in people."
