"We are strengthening several areas of the company to handle our growth. "Our initial objectives for Cinnamon in the U.S include establishing the company as a technology presence in Silicon Valley while adding to our core development group and on-boarding a U.S. sales team," said Miku Hirano, CEO of Cinnamon Inc. "Building a strong investor structure to drive this expansion has been a key part of our strategy, helping us to continue to create new and enhanced AI technology like voice recognition. We are pleased to have secured this final second round of investment from such an esteemed group of investors."
