Greenqloud, the maker of cloud management software Qstack, just announced a $4m investment from investor Kelly Ireland. Kelly will join the board of directors of the company. This was announced by Viðskiptablaðið today, and Kelly on Twitter a week ago.
In a conversation with Viðskiptablaðið, Jónsi Stefánsson CEO of Greenqloud said this was a very important partnership. “We are moving into the American market, and partnering with a seasoned expert in the technology industry is very good for us,” Jónsi said (translated from Icelandic).
Very proud to invest in and become the newest Board member @Greenqloud ! Your #innovation with @qstackcloud made it a very easy decision.

The company (for the lack of a better word) pivoted in 2015, when they moved from providing environmentally friendly cloud hosting solutions, to selling cloud management software.
Previous investors in the company include NSA Ventures, Keel investments and Novator.
