PureWave Secures 12 Million with help of 4 Venture Funds

PureWave Networks Inc. has raised $12 million in Series B funding. ATA Ventures and Leapfrog Ventures were joined by venture funds Allegis Capital and Benhamou Global Ventures.

Two new funds, ATA Ventures and Leapfrog Ventures, have joined PureWave’s existing investors in completing the funding round. The Series B funding will allow PureWave to commercially introduce its advance beam forming WiMAX base stations in North America, the APAC region and other selected markets and to expand its operations.

”PureWave’s strong balance sheet in this challenging economic environment, together with our leading edge product offering, will be the foundation of our future growth,” said Gideon Ben-Efraim, PureWave’s CEO and Chairman. “WiMAX and LTE infrastructure are the big growth opportunity in the mobile infrastructure market today and we are positioning the company to be a major player in this space.”

PureWave, a Silicon Valley Company, is the world’s leading supplier of high-performance adaptive beamforming 4G base-stations currently supporting standard WiMAX devices, enabling delivery of quadruple-play services (Voice, Video, Data, Mobile).

Leapfrog is an early stage technology investor based in Menlo Park, CA. The principals have collectively been involved in over 60 venture investments. Leapfrog is currently investing from its second fund, which commenced its activity in 2005.
