TESTIMONIALS

TiE Angels played a critical role in the success of CloudVolumes. First, they provided our seed round and was much easier to work with a large number of individual investors. Second, their experienced entrepreneurs and investors joined our board. Third, TiE hosted CIO Forums led to our initial enterprise customers. Finally, individually investors in TiE Angels were helpful throughout the life of the company with introductions to customers, partners, job candidates and more.

TiE Angels was one of the earliest groups to recognize the market demand for a secure Data Stream Network and the potential of PubNub to address that need. Their participation in our financing and their amazing network of senior execs, has been instrumental in helping PubNub grow beyond 1000 customers across 60 countries, 250 million connected devices and 3 million transactions per second.
