Fixt, a Baltimore-based provider of an on-demand platform for mobile replacement services, raised $1.4M in seed funding.
Backers included Jonathan Weiner, founder of Google Wallet, Jim Cash, Board Director of Wal-mart and advisor of Highland Capital Partners, and Paul Silber of Blu Venture Investors.
Launched in 2015 by Luke Cooper, President & CEO, Fixt provides a platform to solve the problem of defective mobile devices at enterprises. By accessing the company’s online platform, IT departments can initiate necessary repairs or replacements and monitor solutions by technicians and suppliers using a process that typically takes less than one hour from start to finish.
Fixt has also built a cyber-security layer into their app that monitors common threats to help keep company and employee data safe during a repair.
Clients include organizations such as Kaiser Permanente, Johns Hopkins University, Promontory Financial Group, and others.
