Ledgy Raises $22 Million in Series B  

by Kay Aloha Villamor in September 29th, 2022

Ledgy, a Zurich, Switzerland-based equity management platform built for growing companies, announced that it raised $22 million in Series B funding.

The round was led by New Enterprise Associates (NEA), with participation from Sequoia Capital, Speedinvest, btov, Visionaries Club, and VI Partners, as well as existing angel investors.

Ledgy will use the funds to hire top-class talent, increase the pace of product and feature development, and solidify its market presence in Europe.  

“In the past 12 months, we have enjoyed double-digit monthly growth. We have gone from 15 to 65 employees, expanded our customer base to over 45 countries and 2,500 companies, opened a London office, and grown our presence in Berlin, and we’re just getting started,” said Yoko Spirig, Co-founder and CEO of Ledgy. “The participation of top tier VCs in our Series B is significant for two reasons. First, it’s a powerful validation of Ledgy and our strong growth in the 12 months since our Series A. Second, it reflects a significant trend in which leading US investors are increasing their exposure to the European continent by partnering with the best companies in what is a fast-growing and vibrant startup ecosystem.”

Ledgy integrates with secondary platform Semper, compensation benchmarking platforms Pave and Figures, and over 40 HRIS platforms, such as Hibob, Personio, and Workday. Ledgy is also the equity management partner of choice for the portfolios of over 50 leading venture capitalist firms and accelerators, such as Techstars, Entrepreneur First, and APX. Ledgy also ranked third at the TOP 100 Swiss Startups Awards at the beginning of the month.

Jonathan Golden, Partner at NEA, will join the Ledgy board as part of the funding.
