Wilmont Ventures and Glynn Capital Management also participated, their first investments in the company.

This investment takes Lystable’s total amount raised to £19m over six fundraisings. Its customers thus far include Google and The Economist, and an impressive valuation is to be expected with the company’s most recent filings.
