CoreStack said that the company has raised $13 million so far, enabling expansion of sales and marketing efforts and product development in single and multi-cloud enterprise governance solutions.
"CoreStack has huge potential for upward growth, with the increasing demand for their autonomous, scalable, and profitable cloud governance solution," said Puskoor. "We believe enterprises will continue to invest in multiple clouds, protected with strong governance."

The company was founded in 2016 by Ezhilarasan Natarajan, Sabapathy Arumugam, Krishnakumar Narayanan, and Thiruvalluvar NB.
“As enterprises embrace the cloud as a part of their digital transformation initiatives, there is a pressing need for continuous and autonomous governance in the areas of compliance, security, operations, cost, and consumption in a market valued to be $266 billion in 2020," said Natarajan, also the CEO of CoreStack.
“The financial partnership and enterprise expertise of Naya Ventures, combined with Z5 Capital including our strategic investors will further catalyse our growth milestones. The CoreStack team anticipates 3x growth in revenues in the next 12 months," he added.
