In August, Pivot3 executives issued a statement indicating that company had completed a $12 million Series E round of funding. CEO Ron Nash later said it collected an additional $2.5 million from a converted bridge loan


Austin-based S3 Ventures led the Series E round, which increased to an estimated $110 million the amount of capital Pivot3 had raised since launching
