QuickMobile, a Vancouver, Canada-based provider of mobile solutions for meetings and events, has closed on a $3.3m funding.
The round, which follows $2.6m of investments received in 2011, was led by the BDC‘s BDC IT Venture Fund with participation from existing investor Vancity (a Canadian credit union) and other angel investors.
The company intends to use the capital to continue to expand internationally, strengthen its infrastructure, boost marketing efforts and advance the development and launch of new products and services.
Led by President and CEO Patrick Payne, QuickMobile partners with meeting owners and organizers to develop branded mobile apps for meetings that serve as catalysts for year round conversations with constituents. Its solutions aim to create always-on communications channels that allow event owners to extend their brand and interaction with customers, partners, stakeholders and employees beyond the days and locations of an event.
In conjunction with the funding, Andrew Lugsdin, partner with BDC IT Venture Fund, will join the company’s board of directors.
