Yesterday, it was announced that SkySQL has raised an additional 2.5 million dollars in Series A funding from California Technology Ventures.
This comes along with the news of the new CEO, Patrik Sallner, taking the CEO role at SkySQL on July 1st.
Here are some relevant snippets:
“SkySQL also announced today that CTV, a venture capital fund that makes direct investments in technology and life science companies globally, invested an additional $2.5 million as part of the company’s recent A round of funding. With this latest investment, SkySQL has collected EUR 6 million to fund further growth.”

In case you may have overlooked yesterday’s post from Ulf Sandberg, I thought I’d go ahead and reiterate the main points, as it is big news, at least for those interested in SkySQL.
SkySQL has been like a rocket ship with it’s growth since we started, and now we’re making some even bigger changes to help accelerate that effort further.
As Ulf announced, we’ve named a new CEO, Patrik Sallner, to take over after the initial bootstrap period.
Patrik, a former executive at F-Secure, will officially become CEO on July 1st. “Patrik comes to SkySQL with demonstrated experience in building international software and services businesses, including delivering cloud storage solutions to the world’s largest telecommunications operators. The addition of Patrik to SkySQL’s Leadership Team is a tremendous boon to the company, and I have every confidence that he will be instrumental in catapulting SkySQL to the next level.”
Again, I just wanted to share the news for those who may have missed it.
