Cloud Sherpas Scores $40 Million VC Round, Makes Acquisition

Cloud Sherpas, an up-and-coming Google Apps and Salesforce reseller, had a double dose of positivity in scoring a $40 million venture capital round and announcing its acquisition of CloudTrigger, a cloud VAR. Cloud Sherpas, which has acquired several other smaller cloud players in recent years, plans to continue building out its cloud services portfolio through acquisitions, David Northington, CEO of Cloud Sherpas, said in an interview with CRN. CloudTrigger focuses on Salesforce Service Cloud implementation, and its G2Maps mapping app is available on Salesforce AppExchange. Cloud Sherpas currently has more than 3,000 customers and expects to pull in around $100 million in 2013 revenue.
