Firespotter Labs Raises $15M in Series B Funding
Firespotter Labs, the Pleasanton, Calif.-based startup behind UberConference, has raised $15m in Series B funding.
The round was led by Andreessen Horowitz, with participation from existing investor Google Ventures.
The company intends to use the funding to expand its engineering team and develop its telephony-based product line.
Founded in 2011 by Craig Walker, Chairman and CEO, John Rector, Brian Peterson, and Alex Cornell, Firespotter Labs provides:
- Nosh, which allows users to rate and review individual dishes for the web, iPhone and Android;
- Jotly, the app for “rating everything”, available for iPhone and Android;
- NoshList, a free wait list application for the iPad;
- ÜberConference, a free audio conferencing service with a visual interface.
In conjunction with the funding, Blake Krikorian, co-founder and former CEO of Sling Media, has joined the company’s board.
