"We have set lofty goals at Tecovas – to disrupt a large market with great products at unbeatable price points. We are pleased with our progress so far, which includes bringing in tens of thousands of new customers this year," said Paul Hedrick, Tecovas' Founder & CEO. "I am very excited to bring such well-respected new partners onto the team. We're on a great trajectory but we're 100% focused on continuing to improve our products and customer experience as we grow the business."
The funding was led by YETI Capital and joined by existing investors.

Roy Seiders will join the board of Tecovas following the investment round.
