Hologram, a New Stack portfolio investment, has announced a Series B round of $65 million. The round was led by Tiger Global, with participation from Bullpen Capital, NextView Ventures, and Mucker Capital.
Hologram's cellular platform enables you to connect and manage any device, anywhere in the world.
Ben Forgan, CEO and co-founder of Hologram said "It's my belief that iconic companies require iconic cultures. We're excited to use this new capital to grow our team while staying true to our core values of transparency, mindfulness, and ownership. We're committed to building Hologram into a place where employees can do the best work of their careers."
Forgan and Co-Founder Pat Wilbur launched Hologram in 2014 and have grown it to more than 470 carriers in 200 countries. Hologram is trusted by thousands of businesses in nearly every vertical from healthcare to micromobility to manufacturing across six continents. With this new funding, Hologram will more than triple its team from 70 to over 225. The organization will also further develop its proprietary connectivity management technology and grow across key use-cases, including fleet & asset management and sensors.
"Hologram's global reach, developer-centric approach and strength across end markets positions the company to be the default solution to securely connect devices to the internet," said Evan Feinberg, partner at Tiger Global. "We think the team is poised to extend their market leadership as the number of devices connected to the internet continues to grow."
The round takes Hologram to a total of $80 million raised in equity capital. Additionally, as part of their Series B, Hologram has allocated $5 million to angel investors, primarily focusing on underrepresented groups including women and people of color. The plan includes adding an independent board member, which further underscores Hologram's commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion.
