Commenting on the deal Booker said: "This fundraising will be transformational for CIC and for the businesses it invests in. There has been a significant increase of new tech-based investment opportunities signalling a healthy pipeline of opportunities for CIC. We are delighted to have played a significant role in ensuring this valuable work continues."
