Election management software startup lands $1.5M from Cary’s CoFounders Capital

According to a press release, $1.5 million was raised from CoFounders Capital, a Cary-based seed fund focused on software venture. The two companies plan on continuing to work together.

“We are tremendously excited about what this new partnership with CoFounders Capital brings,”  Davis said in a statement. “Their experience and expertise working with tech companies is exactly what we need as we continue expansion across the United States.”

Companies relying on a Reg D exemption do not have to register their offering of securities with the SEC, but they must file what’s known as a Form D electronically with the SEC after they first sell their securities.

The form can be found here.
