MUNICH, Germany: Rencore, the provider of award-winning software for governing cloud collaboration technology, today announced the completion of a 4 million US$ Series A funding round. The Series A was led by renowned venture capital investor Capnamic, coming at a time of significant growth for Rencore.

The company reacted timely to the digital disruption many organizations incurred while navigating business processes through the current pandemic, offering an easy and effective way for all types of organizations to govern the rapidly growing usage of cloud collaboration services like Microsoft 365. The long-term digital shift drove a significant rise in the cloud collaboration market value, which is expected to reach 66.92 billion dollars by 2026, a rise of 35.14 billion dollars since 2020. Rencore’s award-winning product Rencore Governance empowers organizations to enforce a future-proof cloud collaboration governance strategy.

With the investment, Rencore will scale its product offering and continue to reach both small-medium businesses and enterprises internationally. Rencore also plans to significantly grow its team and partner distribution channel to cement its place as the leader in the cloud collaboration governance space. Such growth enables Rencore to meet the high demand for software that creates full visibility across all Microsoft 365 services, automates mundane tasks, and saves costs across the business.

“We are thrilled to be securing this Series A funding round with Capnamic.”, said Matthias Einig, CEO and Co-Founder of Rencore. “They are not only financially invested but also highly experienced in helping technology start-ups, and especially SaaS providers, to succeed at the next level.
