Ethyca, a New York-based privacy-by-design technology startup that has built a unique set of APIs, detection tools, and analytics to make it easier for organizations to adhere to data privacy policies like GDPR, raised an additional $7.5 million in Series A funding.
The funding, an extension to its June 2020 Series A of $13.5 million, is coming from existing investors specifically Lee Fixel, IA Ventures, Lachy Groom’s LGF, and Table Management (Bill Ackman), and it brings that Series A to $21 million.
The funding will let Ethyca continue to hire to build out that commercial business while continuing to contribute to what it believes needs to be at the heart of how privacy is built in the future.
