New York Cloud Startup Apprenda Expanding to Seattle Area, Targets Microsoft’s Backyard

Money goes out, people come in. That’s the plan for the latest out-of-town investment by Bellevue, WA-based Ignition Partners, which led a $10 million growth round for Clifton Park, NY-based cloud computing startup Apprenda.

I caught up with Apprenda CEO Sinclair Schuller after Tuesday’s announcement to get some more details on a nugget that wasn’t in the press release—Apprenda is expanding in the Seattle region as it looks to add more people. That tidbit actually came via this tweet from Ignition managing director and new Apprenda board member Frank Artale.
