Cilk Arts Completes Funding Round
Cilk Arts, a Lexington, MA, startup that is creating a commercial version of MIT professor Charles Leiserson’s Cilk parallel programming language, said yesterday that it had closed a Series A funding round led by Stata Venture Partners and a network of software industry executives. The amount raised was not disclosed. The company also said it had added Ray Stata, founder and chairman of Analog Devices, and Paul Levine, founder and former CEO of Atria Software, to its board of directors. We’ve spoken with CEO Duncan McCallum about the company’s plans to help independent software vendors rewrite their applications for the multicore machines now emerging onto the server and PC market, and will profile the company later this week.
