mBlox, a mobile transaction network headquartered in Sunnyvale, California and London, UK, has completed a round of funding of undisclosed amount.
Investors include existing backers Norwest Venture Partners, Scale Ventures, Novus, Trident and Avanti and new partner EDBI.
The round, phased over three separate closes, has already enabled mBlox to make a strategic investment in the last quarter of 2010. The remaining funds will be used to enhance its geographic coverage through acquisitions.
