In the last year, d1g1t has been recognized with several awards, including Deloitte’s Fast 50, the Best Enterprise Wealth Management Platform in the 2023 Fintech Awards, and the WealthTech 100 as one of the world’s most innovative WealthTech companies. d1g1t will leverage the funding to continue its rapid expansion in the U.S., scale operations, as well as continue its R&D investment to expand the platform capabilities and advance product innovation. “We are excited to close this investment round with the support of an amazing group of leading Fintech investors and strategic partners, which will continue fueling our steady and sustainable growth”, said Dr. Dan Rosen, d1g1t’s co-Founder and CEO. “Financial advisors have been underserved for too long by their siloed tech stacks. As a result, their capabilities have lagged behind institutional investors. The confidence that our partners have placed in us validates our unique value proposition and highlights our commitment to empower wealth management firms with technology that enhances their high-value human advisory services and sets them apart in their client engagement.” “d1g1t brings true innovation and a unique blend of functionality and usability to its advisor customers,” said Andy Newcomb, Managing Partner, MissionOG and d1g1t board member. “The demands and requirements of both advisors and their end customers have become more complex, yet the solutions to address their needs have largely remained stagnant. In response, d1g1t offers a total solution that has proven its ability to service and delight some of the industry’s most demanding customers.” Joining d1g1t’s investor group this round are CIBC Innovation Banking and, d1g1t’s client and partner, FigTree Financial. “We recognize d1g1t’s transformative approach to digital wealth management,” said Rob Rosen, Managing Director in CIBC Innovation Banking’s Toronto office. “Its sophisticated platform stands out not just for its technological edge, but for how it addresses the nuanced needs of today’s financial professionals. We believe in d1g1t’s potential to further redefine the industry and are excited to be a part of their growth trajectory.” “By providing us with a whole new set of capabilities to engage with our clients in real-time and elevate their experience, the d1g1t platform helps us accelerate our growth and establish ourselves as a leading wealth advisor in the region,” said Danny Farmer, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of FigTree Financial. “We are very excited to expand our partnership and to continue collaborating with the d1g1t team to bring powerful technology to the forefront of wealth management practice.” About d1g1t Inc. d1g1t is the leading Institutional-grade Wealth Management Platform for Advisors, Multi-family Offices, RIAs, and Broker Dealers.

Lumu Technologies, a cybersecurity innovator, is buzzing with excitement as they unveil their $30m Series B funding coup. This round was spearheaded by Forgepoint Capital, demonstrating robust investor confidence in Lumu’s vision and operational prowess.

Raising $30m in this funding phase, Lumu’s Series B is testament to their growing influence in the cybersecurity domain. Forgepoint Capital led the charge, with influential backers like BIP Ventures, Exceptional Capital, and SIMMA Capital also throwing their weight behind Lumu.

So, what does Lumu bring to the cybersecurity table? In a rapidly evolving cyber landscape, Lumu is redefining how enterprises view and handle their cyber defences. Rather than providing a one-size-fits-all solution, Lumu offers a bespoke approach. It’s their conviction that cybersecurity isn’t a product you can just purchase off the shelf. They pride themselves on delivering customised tools tailored to specific organisational needs, making them an anchor of stability amidst the tumultuous sea of cyber threats.

The funds raised will primarily bolster Lumu’s footprint, especially within the US market. Their mission is clear: to differentiate themselves from the plethora of inefficient tools saturating the cybersecurity sector. The end goal is to offer under-resourced security teams a beacon of hope. Lumu is particularly keen on enhancing their AI capabilities, positioning it as an ally that supports rather than complicates the work of Secops teams.

It’s noteworthy to mention that this isn’t Lumu’s first rodeo in the fundraising arena. Their ongoing journey has been buoyed by the relentless support of investors like the Opportunity Fund, Panoramic Ventures, KnowBe4 Ventures, and industry stalwarts like Lane Bess and Tom Noonan.

In conclusion, Lumu, founded in 2019, continues to surge forward with a renewed commitment to making cybersecurity operations more intuitive, effective, and efficient. Their recently secured Series B funding is not just financial capital; it’s a testament to their unwavering dedication to their mission.
