Blue Medora, which develops enterprise IT management software, recently closed on an $8.6 million Series B round led by Lewis & Clark Ventures. The new investment will be used to expand channel sales, marketing and hybrid cloud R&D.

Officials from Lewis & Partners out of St. Louis said the Series B is an example of the increased attention being paid to tech companies outside of Silicon Valley. Plus, more money is being funneled to these companies from VCs that aren't in the valley.
