Urban Airship Raises $5.4M Second Round

,

Congrats to the Urban Airship team for raising their second round of financing led by our friends at the Foundry Group.

When we first funded Scott and team back in February, we were impressed by the enormous traction they had achieved in such a short period of time.  With a small team of developers, they had pushed over 100M messages in a 6 month timeframe.  Fast forward another 9 months, and they have now pushed over 1 billion messages, pushing over a 100M messages per month!  Moreover, they have touched tens of millions of devices, thousands of customers, and Verizon recently picked them as their preferred provider for push notifications.  Their Storefront product continues to gain major traction as well with many major publishers continuing to adopt their solutions for in-app purchases and subscriptions.

The story, however, goes far beyond push notifications and in app content delivery as Urban Airship continues to build a comprehensive mobile services platform that sits between smart phone/tablet applications and the consumer.

We think this is just the beginning and look forward to many exciting days ahead!
