Indiana technology companies continue to close successful seed funding, equity and venture rounds in the second quarter of 2016. In comparison to Q1 2016, Q2 has seen larger investments across a wide range of tech industries. We compiled a list of public announcements to highlight the activity and interest.

Cloud and hosting technology company CloudOne announced a $9 million Series E raise in April to start out the quarter with a bang. Plymouth Ventures of Ann Arbor, Michigan led the funding round with primary participation by Hercules Technology Growth Capital of Palo Alto, Calif. Total investment in CloudOne is currently at $21.9 million.

Health analytics software company Springbuk announced a $3.75 million Series A raise in May, led by St. Louis-based Lewis & Clark Ventures. The company had less than 20 staff in 2015 but will be growing their team to 40 by the end of 2016.
