San Francisco-based startup Mobilize announced today that it has raised US $1.2 million in seed funding. The round of funding was led by Hillsven Capital, with participation from UpWest Labs and Eddy Shalev. The funding will be used to grow the team, accelerate product development, and continue supporting the company’s beta customers.
Mobilize has developed a comprehensive solution to help businesses manage external communities by providing customers with tools that effectively engage and rally key external stakeholders. Although still in beta, Mobilize includes high-profile customers such as Google, Uber, and Intuit, among many others.
Mobilize is one of the only cloud-based platform that combines a member directory, groups, communications tools, and engagement analytics. The Mobilize platform is useful across a wide variety of organizations, including programs and fellowships, shared economy companies, VCs and accelerators, co-working spaces, developer groups, and volunteer-based organizations.
“While most of the solutions out there revolve around customer management or internal team collaboration, there is a serious need for a solution to help in mobilizing and engaging external freelancers, participants, contributors, and stakeholders who are close to a company and key to that company’s success,” said Sharon Savariego, CEO and Co-Founder of Mobilize.
With an office in San Francisco and Tel Aviv, Mobilize first introduced its platform in private beta earlier this year. The launch will be early next year.
