SICAR, informally known as 3TS Cisco Growth Fund, has invested in Avangate by acquiring a minority stake in the company.

While Avangate’s 2011 strategic direction is maintained, the investment from 3TS Capital Partners will allow the company to grow at a faster pace by strengthening its global presence. Avangate is committed to technology innovation and will continue to put a strong emphasis on localization and customization in order to help software vendors optimize their sales processes and reach new markets efficiently and cost effectively.
