Notable rounds this week:

Crucible Acquisition Corp. (NYSE: CRU.U) completed its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange Thursday, raising $265,925,000.

SPACs are shell companies that are listed on public exchanges and exist solely to be acquired by companies looking to go public outside of the normal procedures of an initial public offering. The plan is for Crucible to merge with a software company, most likely with a cloud-based subscription model.

Crucible is run by Jim Lejeal, a former chief financial officer of Rally Software and Sphero in Boulder, along with Foundry Group partner Brad Feld and general counsel Jason Lynch.
