The Danish venture capital community has been active again.
Startup Panorama9 said it had raised $900,000 in new capital from investors who'd previously backed Zendesk, the IT cloud management platform that's been pegged as a top prospect for a 2013 initial public offering.
Both companies have offices in San Francisco as well as Copenhagen.
Panorama9 has developed a cloud-based dashboard to provide technology managers with a snapshot of all events happening across their entire enterprise. CEO Allan Thorvaldsen was a founder of SoftScan ApS, a software-as-a-service provider acquired by Symantec Corp. (NASDAQ:SYMC), of Mountain View, Calif., in 2009.
The new funds come from Enalyzer, also an investor in Zendesk, as well as from Morten Stromsted, a private equity firm. Enalyzer principal Jakob Roed said he sees “several parallels” between the two companies.
Panorama9 said it would tap the new cash to expand its sale staff and partnerships in the U.S. as well as develop more features. The company is also focusing on the problems faced by enterprises whose employees log into networks with smartphones and tablets, the so-called bring-your-own-device (BYOD) sector.
