Involta, the Cedar Rapids-based information technology and consulting company, has successfully raised $5.2 million, according to Clay & Milk. The $5.2 million is the first part of a larger round that will likely raise between $7.5 million and $8 million total. Involta’s private equity group participated in the first $5.2 million, and now existing investors will have the opportunity to invest in the rest of the round, Involta CEO Bruce Lehrman said.
