Airtame announced that it has secured $6 million in funding, and appointed two former Siteimprove executives as chief financial officer and chief commercial officer. The funding involved participation from a combination of existing and new investors, as well as Danish investment fund Vækstfonden and Danske Bank. It brings the total external capital raised since Airtame launched in 2014 to $17.1 million.
“There’s never been a more important time to invest in technology that will help bring people together safely and facilitate more engaging and inclusive meetings and lessons — whether they’re in-person, remote or a combination of the two. Airtame’s combined hardware and software solution is already used by more than 20,000 customers around the world, powering over one million monthly meetings and classes. With this additional funding, we will continue to develop our product and bring smart screen sharing and digital signage technology to even more schools and workplaces around the world,” said Jonas Gyalokay, CEO and co-founder of Airtame.
As for the company’s new executives, both Martin Wagner, joining as CFO and Sigurdur Orri Gudmundsson, joining as CCO, come from Danish founded tech company Siteimprove. According to Airtame, Wagner and Gudmundsson will play an instrumental role in driving its international growth as a hardware-enabled SaaS company in 2021 and beyond.
“We are delighted to welcome Martin and Sigurdur to the team. Coming from Siteimprove, they bring invaluable experience in growing a successful technology business internationally, as well as skills in adopting a modern, collaborative approach to leadership. Martin and Sigurdur will play an instrumental role in Airtame’s continued expansion across North America, EMEA, APAC and beyond. With additional funding and a solid executive team now in place, we look forward to what is set to be a huge 2021 at Airtame,” said Gyalokay.
