Every year, CNBC scans the globe looking for the 100 venture-backed startups that have the potential to transform industries and become tomorrow’s household names.
Their 2019 Upstart 100 list showcases young startups that are building and scaling businesses addressing the rapidly changing technological era we live in.
Selected from more than 600 nominees globally, Vancouver’s Cmd has made the list.
Earlier this year the cybersecurity startup closed a US $15 million Series B funding round led by GV.
Cmd allows organizations to proactively secure their Linux environment by providing real-time visibility into user actions, customizable controls, and the ability to stop commands pre-execution without the need for human intervention.
Formerly known as Google Ventures, GV is the venture capital arm of Google’s parent company, Alphabet. The funding round also included participation from Amplify Partners and Expa.
Cmd was co-founded in 2016 by CEO Jake King, former security operations lead at Hootsuite, and Milun Tesovic, a partner at Expa. Tesovic sold his MetroLyrics startup to CBS Interactive in 2014.
Cmd currently employees 49 in Vancouver and is hiring aggressively.
