Electric vehicle charging infrastructure company Coulomb Technologies has secured $15 million in Series C funding. Coulomb will use the funds to help accelerate product development of the ChargePoint Network, enhance customer support and drive sales.
New investors Harbor Pacific Capital and LS Cable Ltd., and LS Industrial Systems Co., Ltd. are joining existing investors Rho Ventures, Voyager Capital, Siemens Venture Capital GmbH, and Hartford Ventures, a strategic investment division of The Hartford Financial Services Group, Inc.
