Descope has raised $53M in seed funding led by Lightspeed and GGV Capital, with participation from several other investors and notable individual investors such as George Kurtz (CEO, CrowdStrike), Bipul Sinha (CEO, Rubrik), John Thompson (Board Director, Microsoft), and Assaf Rappaport (CEO, Wiz).
Descope is founded by a team of highly technical, customer-centric engineers who have created multiple category-defining companies in the past. Most recently, this team created Demisto, a leader in the Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) space that was acquired by Palo Alto Networks for $560M.
