We've Raised $12M Series B with Bessemer, USV, and 500 Startups

Wow, what a crazy week!  We’re excited to announce that we have raised our second round of venture capital financing from new and existing investors totalling $12 million dollars.  Bessemer Venture Partners led the round, which included Union Square Ventures, 500 Startups, and several other notable angel investors who have been involved in previous rounds.

Thank You’s Are in Order!

We’d like to say thank you first and foremost to our customers, who are the reason we exist and the reason why investors are interested in providing us with more money to grow our business.  Another big thank you to our employees, who are working hard to kick ass on everything from scaling to support and helping us move the needle in meaningful ways everyday.  Last but certainly not least, thank you to our investors for their continued support of our mission to shake up the world of communications.  Onward!
