BOSTON, MA — November 2, 2022 — / / — HYCU, Inc., the world’s fastest-growing multi-cloud data protection as a service company, has been nominated as Hottest Startup in the Technology Award category by the New England Venture Capital Association (NEVCA) for its 10th annual NEVY Awards, which recognizes and celebrates the top innovators, investors and companies in the region. Presented again this year by Dell Technologies, winners will be announced December 8th at the Alice in Wonderland themed event in-person at House of Blues Boston.

“In spite of a challenging macro-economic business environment, this has been an outstanding year for HYCU,” said Simon Taylor, Founder and CEO, HYCU, Inc. “We raised a $53M Series B, bringing the total raised to $140M in a year. We added several new investors including Atlassian Ventures, Cisco Investments and Okta Ventures in addition to our lead investors for our two rounds, Acrew Capital and Bain Capital Ventures. We continue to capture marketshare, add new customers and partners, all based on our fundamental belief that there is a better way to manage, protect and recover data across on-premises and multi- and hybrid cloud IT environments. And, with the explosion of the deployment of SaaS apps across the enterprise with more than 170 in use at the average size organization coupled with the rise of cyberthreats like ransomware, and data protection as we know it has forever changed. At HYCU, the support of our investors has set us up for what’s to come. The future is bright and the innovation we are working on and plan to bring to market in early 2023 will be unparalleled.”

The NEVYs honor both early- and late-stage companies, as well as the venture capitalists who support them, and cover a broad spectrum of the region’s thriving industry clusters. The academies are spread across Technology, Life Sciences, Healthcare and MedTech. Nominees are selected by the NEVYs Academy, comprised of investors from the region’s top venture capital firms.
