[The logistics start-up comfunded by a group of angel investors and looking to make the most of its first-mover advantage, has rolled out an aggressive nationwide advertising campaign.

(A) funded by a group of angel investors and looking to make the most of its first-mover advantage, has rolled out an aggressive : use of proper tenses

(B) funded by a group of angel investors and looked to make the most of its first-mover advantage, rolled out an aggressive:

Should use present perfect tense in order to state 'campign is already started from past and not over till now'

(C) funding by a group of angel investors and looking to make the most of its first-mover advantage, is rolling out an aggressive

'Funding 'wrong :simple gerund

(D) which a group of angel investors have funded to make the most of its first mover advantage, has aggressively rolled out a

'Which' uncessarry

(E) having been funded by a group of angel investors and looking to make the most of their first mover advantage, has rolled out an aggressive

+1 A

(A) funded by a group of angel investors and looking to make the most of its first-mover advantage, has rolled out an aggressive-A verb-ed and verb-ING modifier is perfectly parallel as marked.The verb has perfectly played the role.No error so far.Hold it
(B) funded by a group of angel investors and looked to make the most of its first-mover advantage, rolled out an aggressive-verb-ed (funded) modifier can't be in parallel with verb(looked),so wrong.and the action is still ongoing so present perfect tense should be preferred over past tense.
(C) funding by a group of angel investors and looking to make the most of its first-mover advantage, is rolling out an aggressive-verb-ING modifier funding doesn't make sense and continuous tense is unnecessary.wrong
(D) which a group of angel investors have funded to make the most of its first mover advantage, has aggressively rolled out a-the modifier part starts with which completely changes the meaning.
has rolled out an aggressive campaign and has aggressively rolled out a campaign are not same.second one distorts the meaning.

(E) having been funded by a group of angel investors and looking to make the most of their first mover advantage, has rolled out an aggressive-wrong parallelism between the marked ones.

So the right answer is A.
