With the seemingly ever increasing sizes of venture rounds these days, a $60 million round might not be eye popping for many folks. But it is for me. Especially when it’s a local Series A number. And that’s what Vancouver’s Embed — formerly known as Embedded — just raised.
We are also announcing our $60m Series A funding round, which comprised over $20m in equity, and a $40m flexible debt facility from TriplePoint Capital. Participating investors include The Treasury, GFC, Torch Capital, TI Platform Management, PruVen Capital, Fin VC, Bain Capital Ventures, SWS Ventures among other notable investors.
Together with our Seed funding announced in April, Embed has now raised $80m across both equity and debt.
As near as I can tell, no local investors participated in this round.
What does Embed doing to attract this sort of investment?
