Dockwa, a Newport, RI-based mobile app company providing reservations to boaters and the marine industry, raised $1.1m in additional seed funding.
Investors included David Skok of Matrix Partners, HubSpot’s CEO Brian Halligan and CMO Mike Volpe, Driftt’s CTO Elias Torres, and several private investors.
The company, which has raised $1.4m, intends to use the capital to expand the platform, as well as to grow the Dockwa team.
Led by Mike Melillo, founder and CEO, Dockwa is a unified booking and marketing platform that connects boaters to marinas. Boaters can download the app, explore, reserve, and pay at their favorite marina. Marinas confirm the reservation, collect payment, and deposit the customer’s information into their database.
The company will be launching exclusively to the New England market in May 2015, but the company will be expanding to other markets throughout the United States. It has offices in Boston, MA.
