In May 2020 Ecwid raised $42M from a syndicate of US Private Equity firms Morgan Stanley and PeakSpan. It was not only an exit for Runa but also a memorable milestone in the 9-year joint journey. Our partner Dmitry Chikhachev reflected on this investment and shared his vision of this story — from its inception to the successful exit and even more.
