LDC is an experienced investment partner with a lot of expertise in the SaaS arena. The team quickly understood our model, ambition and strategy for the business. LDC has already introduced us to several of their existing portfolio companies for whom the CIPHR product is ideal. The partnership will give our management team the extra support needed to accelerate growth and identify strategic acquisitions to build on our product offering for the benefit of our customers.
