 strategic and differentiated business model, and the potential for
 significant market expansion - Fabrik has all the above," said Jim McLean,

 way it plans to build and deliver its solutions. The company's strategy has
 made it a very attractive investment for us. Fabrik is an ideal addition to

 our continued expansion into new markets. This sizeable investment from two
 leading VC firms is a powerful endorsement of our vision, strategy and
 execution," said Mike Cordano, co-founder and CEO of Fabrik. "Although
 we're profitable from operations, this added capital accelerates our
