Dapresy Welcomes New Investor
Investment by Nordic Private Equity Fund Verdane Capital IX
Dapresy, a global provider of visual data reporting software, today announced that it has received the support of a new investor, Verdane Capital IX, a Nordic private equity fund, to further develop its information visualization and reporting software.
Funding from the new investment will be directed primarily towards development and support activities for its innovative and time-tested Dapresy Pro software, which enables users to create and deploy online dashboard reporting solutions for market research and customer experience management.
According to Dapresy CEO Tobi Andersson, “We are excited to partner with Verdane. This is a period of great success, as we’ve averaged more than 30 percent growth for the past four years and have recently introduced Dapresy Pro Version 10. Verdane’s investment will allow us to take Dapresy to the next level of realizing our vision of a true do-it-yourself-platform. This will help our customers make better business decisions by easily finding the story that lives within their data.”
“We are very excited to have Dapresy in our portfolio,” said Pal Malmros, partner at Verdane. “Enormous amounts of market research and customer feedback data is being collected by businesses and agencies today, but this data becomes really valuable only when it can be translated into action. This is why we believe so much in Dapresy’s products. The Dapresy team has built an innovative product and a very impressive customer roster. We look forward to working with the team and supporting their expansion.”
Verdane invested through a combination of primary funding and an acquisition of shares from Swedish Almi Invest, which had been an investor in Dapresy since 2011.
Verdane funds support companies that have high ambitions in software, consumer internet, energy and high- tech industries with flexible growth capital. Verdane funds have €900m under management and have invested in over 300 companies over the past 14 years. Verdane Capital Advisors has 24 employees working out of offices in Oslo, Stockholm, and Helsinki. More information can be found at: www.verdanecapital.com.
