Inigral, a San Francisco, CA-based maker of an app for schools on Facebook, has raised $3.25m in funding.
Backers include Retro Venture Partners and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The company intends to use the capital to continue to expand operations.
Founded in 2007 and led by Jamie Glenn, CEO, Inigral provides a subscription-based enrollment management solution. Built on the Facebook, iPhone and Android platforms, Schools App aims to make the transition to college much easier by providing students with a trusted environment to make friends, share interests and get involved on campus and university administrators with retention tools and real-time data and analytics. A new module (called Announcements) provides schools with the ability to target and communicate with students on a variety of channels, such as Facebook, text message or iPhone notifications.
The company’s solution is currently used by over 100 colleges, including University of California at Berkeley, Gonzaga University, Western Governors University and the Lone Star College system.
Inigral is also backed by Founders Fund.
