The round was co-led by Las Olas Venture Capital (LOVC) and Bessemer Venture Partners with participation from previous investors Tech Square Ventures, BLH Ventures and Buckhead Investment Partners. As part of the financing Esteban Reyes, founding partner of LOVC, has joined the Cypress board of directors.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate product development, sales growth and market expansion.
