The Spanish software company Taclia just secured €6.2 million in funding from international investors Cusp Capital and Stage 2 Capital.
Founded in 2018, the startup offers a solution that enables SMEs to digitize and manage their daily processes.
Based out of Barcelona, Taclia developed a free software management platform for small and medium-sized businesses that covers all relevant business functions: from scheduling, to time tracking, and invoicing.
Originally named ‘Pintaclia’, the startup offers a modular all-in-one solution to digitize small enterprises’ processes– mostly still managed on spreadsheets.
In a recent press release announcing their latest funding round, Taclia claims to have acquired over 500 new customers per week, fueled by product led-growth, letting product usability drive engagement and value to customers without the need of a dedicated sales team.
At such rate, the company proves their on the patch to becoming a global go-to all-in-one software solution for SMEs.
An ally for business
Following the backing of German VC Cusp Capital and New York’s Stage 2 Capital, Alex Casals, founder and CEO of Taclia shared that “Cusp Capital and Stage 2 Capital have identified Taclia’s strong potential, encouraging us to continue working to make our platform the perfect ally for businesses – easy-to-use and fully customizable.”
With the recent funding, Taclia plans to deploy the newly retrieved financial means to improve the product even further, grow its team and scale across geographies.
Cusp Capital is known for investing in scaling tech startups like Zalando, Delivery Hero, and Klarna. Maximilian Rowoldt, investor at Cusp Capital, expressed that at the VC, “we follow the thesis that end-to-end software solutions will change the way SMEs operate for good globally.
Taclia empowers SMEs across verticals that have been underserved by software in the past to get rid of undigitized processes and build new ways to interact with customers, suppliers and their workforce.”
American fund Stage 2 Capital, led by Jay Po and Mark Roberge, is backed by top GTM executives from technology companies such as Zoom, Asana, Oracle, Salesforce, Snowflake, Smartsheet, Toast, Hubspot, etc.
The fund not only provides financial investment, but also tactical GTM advice and guidance to support the company’s global expansion of the business.
According to Crunchbase data, Taclia has received €7.9 Million in funding since 2019.
The startup was founded by its CEO Alex Casal, and current CTO, David Delgado.
