Singapore-based CloudDesk gets US$420K investment from NRF, IncuVest

SINGAPORE-headquartered CloudDesk Pte Ltd said it has closed a S$589,000 (US$420,000) round of funding from the National Research Foundation (NRF), through its Technology Incubation Scheme (TIS), and investment firm and incubator IncuVest.
 
CloudDesk provides Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and mobile computing solutions for educational institutions, government agencies and corporations, with customers across South-East Asia.
 
In a statement, the company said it delivers virtual workspaces while providing a seamless end-user experience.
 
It claimed its proprietary solutions extend traditional VDI by offering market-differentiating services like an offline mode which allows users to continue using their virtual desktops and/ or applications when disconnected  from the network, a common drawback of traditional VDI.
 
“This is a very important round of funding for us as it provides the runway to continue to enhance our proprietary technology, further innovate in this space, as well continue our regional expansion plans,” said chief executive officer C.J. Ong.
 
“The VDI market is … rapidly growing and … we believe this leaves a lot of room for opportunity through innovation,” he added.
 
CloudDesk, established in 2013, said it also has operations in Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines.
