Who are the investors?

  • The Series B round was co-led by KPN Ventures, the venture capital investment branch of KPN, The Netherlands’ leading telecom and ICT service provider, and Lead Ventures, a fresh Budapest-based venture capital and private equity firm, specialist in financing scaleups in Central Europe.
  • The startup also saw the support from the existing investors Point Nine Capital, henQ, Orbit Capital, and Presto Ventures.

I think back to 2018 when we were closing the CloudTalk investment. It was one of Presto’s very first and at the time, CloudTalk was a budding startup with a few clients and a minimalist product. It’s amazing to witness how far the company has come and the challenges its team has had to grapple with over that time. The current investment round marks another milestone in CloudTalk’s journey of becoming a market leader in customer voice communication tools. We’re proud to have been with them from the beginning and look forward to supporting their journey as we advance,

Premysl Rubes, founding partner of Presto Ventures, said in a comment to AIN.Capital.

This funding comes at a crucial time when sales and customer service teams worldwide are aiming at improving performance and efficiency during major economic changes.
