Swedish firm expanding global operations and staffing up San Francisco office

Team collaboration and management tools outfit Hansoft has raised its first round of funding to $10m.

The company had secured $8.4 million of financing in January earlier this year, but has now raised further capital with the aid of investor Hasso Plattner Ventures.

The Swedish firm aims to expand its operations worldwide and will begin recruiting more staff to its San Francisco office. Hansoft is also looking to grow its executive team with the appointments of a chief growth officer and chief revenue officer, who will be based in the US.

“We are truly excited that Hasso Plattner Ventures have joined our team of investors,” said Hansoft CEO Patric Palm.

“Their international network and experience will help us bring Hansoft to a much wider group of users. So many companies today find themselves managing very large teams of teams making software products or software enabled services. By taking their agile practices to a next level they can quite significantly boost their productivity and innovation, and Hansoft is the tool to enable this increased competitiveness.”
