"We are delighted to have closed funding from two world-class investors. The proceeds from the JVP and Alta Berkeley investments will support the continued expansion of our business and drive increased sales, particularly in the U.S.," said Paul Phillips, founder and CEO of Touch Clarity. Laurel Bowden, a partner at JVP added: "We are pleased to be investing in Touch Clarity at this important time in the company's development.
