Lemongrass Consulting, a SAP and AWS consultant based in the United Kingdom, has announced plans to establish its U.S. headquarters in Atlanta following a $10 million Series C raise. The round was led by Blue Lagoon Capital and joined by returning investor Columbia Capital.
Lemongrass CEO Michael Rosenbloom told Atlanta Inno the firm will establish their local headquarters this summer, with a target for July. The funding will primarily be used to build out the executive management team, grow sales and marketing, accelerate the development of the MiCloud software platform and to grow the company’s footprint in the U.S. and other markets, he said.
“Lemongrass will be hiring almost 200 new resources in 2020 and plans to open a U.S. headquarters in Atlanta in the summer of this year, adding a number of jobs in the local community,” he said. “Our CEO and soon to be named CTO both reside in the greater Atlanta area already and we expect to add technology professionals such as technical architects, SAP and AWS infrastructure engineers, sales and marketing resources and support personnel.”
