Washington Harbour invests in software engineering startup

Founded in 2018, Raft will put this new capital toward the research and development of new products for the digital battlefield.

Private equity firm Washington Harbour Partners has made a $60 million growth investment into Raft, a government technology startup that provides software development and engineering services to national security agencies.

Raft started out in 2018 to help the U.S. military and its allies incorporate more technology tools that are driven by data science, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Through this new backing announced Wednesday, Raft will work to further scale its research-and-development efforts focused on new product offerings for command-and-control functions.

Raft’s founder and chief executive Shubhi Mishra continues as CEO and remains a significant shareholder, the company and Washington Harbour said.
