$2.2 million funding for former CS students

Hassan Khajeh-Hosseini, along with former CS students Ali Khajeh-Hosseini and Alistair Scott saw an untapped market to help engineers lower their cloud computing costs, creating Infracost as a result. Infracost provides developers with cloud cost estimates based on changes they make to their code infrastructure.

Hassan, the CEO, who attended The Robert Gordon University and The University of Edinburgh, and is a serial entrepreneur, with two of his companies he cofounded with his brother Ali (ShopForCloud and AbarCloud) being acquired. Ali, also attended The Robert Gordon University and The University of Edinburgh like his brother, and went on to obtain his Ph.D. from the University of St. Andrews, with his doctoral thesis focusing on cloud computing (Thesis: Supporting System Deployment Decisions in Public Clouds). His decade of expertise in the field played a critical role in the success and acquisitions of ShopForCloud and AbarCloud. Rounding out the team is Alistair, who attended the University of St. Andrews for his computer science degree. He was also a cofounder at AbarCloud and a senior software engineer at RightScale. These three together have impressive domain expertise and a successful entrepreneurial track record in cloud computing makes it likely that will make a massive impact with Infracost in the tech industry at-large.
