The list includes:

SilverRail raises USD40 million to expand (April)

Hotel tech outfit DerbySoft gets USD9 million to fund growth (April)

Amadeus pays 46 million (USD63m) for 68.5% of German corporate travel tech company i:FAO (April)

GrabTaxi, an app, said to have raised USD10 million (April)

Carrot, a Mexican car sharing site, wangles USD2 million from investors (April)
