Ruckus Media Group, a Norwalk, CT-based independent family entertainment company, has raised $3.5m in funding.
The round was led by Alsop Louie Partners, with participation from private investors.
The company intends to use the funds to further expand its mobile application offerings and expand across multiple online stores and platforms including Apple’s iTunes, Google’s Android Market, Research In Motion’s Blackberry App World, Amazon’s App Store and the Barnes and Noble Nook.
Launched in 2010 and led by President and CEO Rick Richter, Ruckus Media Group creates applications for mobile devices that entertain toddlers and teens.
The company released its first five apps on iTunes in mid-October and has expanded to fifteen apps.
