The company is also in discussions with potential investors on a scheduled second round to Series B.

Kailight’s latest funding round was led by new investor Hyperion Venture Partners and an unnamed strategic investor. All of Kailight’s current investors also participated in this round, including Lucent Venture Partners, The Yozma Group, Ofer Hi-Tech, Peregrine Ventures and Plentyum.
