Cloud4Wi, a Cascina (Pisa), Italy-based provider of next generation cloud Wi-Fi solutions, raised $4m in Series A funding.
Venture Capital firm United Ventures made the investment.
The company intends to use the funds for international expansion with the opening of a new San Francisco-based office.
Led by Andrea Calcagno, CEO, Cloud4Wi provides a cloud platform that allows venues to monetize their provision of Wi-Fi services by leveraging a marketplace to deliver special offers to customers via the branded splash portal, provide applications to help customers enjoy their visits, use marketing tools to retain and develop their customer bases, capture customer data via analytics tools and spread their brand thanks to social Wi-Fi.
The marketplace is also open to third party developers.
