Penningtons Manches Cooper acts on transatlantic Series D2 funding round for global talent mobility tech company, Topia

Posted: 12/05/2020


Topia is a complete Global Talent Mobility platform that enables businesses to effectively deploy, manage, and engage employees around the world. Its cloud-based platform continues to deliver mobility as part of a broader talent and business strategy with enhanced employee experiences. This funding round will enable Topia to further invest in driving innovation and broader go-to-market activities.

Topia’s chief executive officer Shawn Farshchi said: "We are committed to meeting the needs of global enterprises to support and manage their employees, empowering them with the technology and insights they need to understand where their employees are and where they need to be.”  

Cambridge-based partner Ross McNaughton led the Penningtons Manches Cooper team, with assistance from Laurence Nelson.

He comments: “When Penningtons Manches Cooper first established a presence in San Francisco, our aim was to support exciting, fast-growth companies like Topia. It’s great to see our goal realised as we help companies to achieve their ambition. It was also good to see a transaction executed from start to finish under the current US and UK lockdown and is testament to the fact that deals can still get done in this environment.”
