Insight Venture Partners invested a reported $100m in the business in June by buying out existing backers.
The company was initially based in London but relocated to Boston in 2006 after receiving $4m of Series A financing from Northstar Global Partners.
Anaqua says its software helps companies grow and protect their intellectual property, including inventions, patents, trade secrets, brands and trademarks, and helps law firms improve their IP practices.
BVP partner Bob Goodman, who has joined the Anaqua board, said, “It’s always been challenging for businesses to manage IP and trademarks.
“But these days, it’s a strategic advantage to manage them well.
“Anaqua is a category leader with software that facilitates both the management and filing/renewal of these patents, and goes even further by offering strategies for extending patents.
“Simply put, Anaqua has identified a critical and growing need and their software gives customers a competitive edge. BVP is excited to fund their continued global expansion.”
