Align is a Software as a Service (SaaS) company that provides cloud-based business planning software. The New Orleans-based company recently secured $2.175 million in a Series A round of funding.
Now headquartered in New Orleans after hiring a new CEO, Doug Walner, in 2017, Align plans to hire locally, including positions in software development, project management, marketing, and sales.
“Align calms the chaos of daily business operations by providing a framework for focused execution and communication,” shared Walner. The company has roughly 8,000 users and continues to grow.
“This level of investment demonstrates confidence in the company, the product and the market opportunity,” Walner continued.
One-third of the funding was contributed by New Orleans-based investors.
