Press release from the issuing company
Palaiseau (France) -- Rhapso closed a new € 3.5 million round of funding with OTC Asset Management and I-Source. One year after a second round which backed Graphisoft acquisition, this new funding is a clear recognition that prior expectations have been met. These additional resources will help Rhapso reaching new milestones in its future growth moving forward.
