Bandura plans to use the new capital to ramp up sales and marketing, according to a press release.
Cultivation Capital, a St. Louis-based venture capital firm, participated in the latest round, which also included Grotech Ventures, Gula Tech Adventures and Maryland Venture Fund, according to the release.
St. Louis participants in the company’s previous round included Prosper Women Entrepreneurs, SixThirty, SixThirty Cyber and UMB Financial Corp.
