Panorama9 is a Danish startup that in mid-December confirmed $900,000 from private investors in Denmark to help grow its burgeoning U.S. presence. The company offers a Web-based management dashboard designed to simplify how companies track all of their premise- and cloud-based IT assets. It launched in the U.S. in April 2012 and, according to the company, has increased new customer sign-ups by 20 percent every month since then. CEO Thorvaldsen, a serial entrepreneur, sold his previous startup Softscan to Symantec in 2009.
