Backers included Lenovo Group Limited (HKSE: 992) (ADR: LNVGY), and current investors DCM and ONSET Ventures. In conjunction with the funding, George He, SVP and President of Ecosystem & Cloud Services Group at Lenovo, will join Nok Nok Labs’ Board of Directors.
The company, which has raised a total of $31.5M to date, intends to use the funds to accelerate the development and reach of its NNL™ S3 authentication suite, expand its sales, business development and marketing efforts, and continue to sign partnerships.
