French term or phrase: le tour de table est bouclé....
...et X devient une SAS au capital de X000000€

clearly a reference that an important goal has been achieved which made it possible to go to the next step.

But how do I say it?

Explanation:
More context would of course be useful. Never the less, I reckon that you can retain the literal/figurative problem in an English rendering along the lines of :

- everyone has chipped in
- all parties concerned have made their contribution

An appropriate answer in your context no doubt lies somewhere between the two !

Furtehr to Marc's note, obivously, more context would have been helpful. That was made clear. "investment round", an interesting idea.... but of course so much more context woudl indeed have been required !
Cheers to all !

Clearly my suggestion, openly based on the common or garden reading of this phrase was not correct in context.

Indeed a quick search ["tour de table" glossaire] indicates the more specific meaning in this context :

"Tour de table (round)

Ensemble des actionnaires qui participent à l’augmentation de capital d’une société."

disagree  Alan Tolerton: I don't see any ambiguity here or need for more context. "The fund-raising round was completed" meaning that the co. accepted investment from angels or other investors in private equity and was launched.

  -> You are right of course. My albeit openly common or garden suggestion was not appropriate in context.
