Denver, CO/Los Angeles, CA – eonBusiness (www.eonBusiness.com), a venture capital firm that specializes in funding early-stage innovative web-based businesses, and mobileStorm (www.mobileStorm.com), a leading provider of digital marketing products and services, today announced the successful conclusion of mobileStorm’s Series A funding in which eonBusiness is the sole investor.
A rapidly growing enterprise, mobileStorm has quickly become known for its understanding of database messaging, digital marketing and consumer marketing trends, helping forward-thinking brands take hold in today’s elusive digital marketing space. mobileStorm’s services help businesses communicate and market to an entire database or to a select group of contacts through a single system that can send that message via multiple platforms – email, SMS, voice, fax and rss. The company has delivered more than 1 billion messages since its inception, having executed more than 500,000 marketing campaigns on behalf of thousands of customers.
“We’re pleased to be associated with eonBusiness and we believe, in addition to the investment, that the eonBusiness team will bring significant value and guidance to mobileStorm’s strategic initiatives,” said Jared Reitzin, CEO of mobileStorm. “We were very selective in choosing an investment partner. Having successfully grown this company on our own to this point over the past 8 years, our decision process was centered on being certain our partner would share our core vision and be a strong asset in making the longer term plans a reality.”
“The power and convenience of mobileStorm’s marketing applications provide a great solution to a growing marketing problem – how to break through the noise and consistently reach a company’s critical client base as they go about their daily lives-in-the-fast lane,” said Dave Carlson, CEO of eonBusiness. “From email to messaging via mobile devices, companies need to interact with customers across any and all platforms. mobileStorm makes that happen so clients can keep up with an ever-mobile population that doesn’t have time for marketing messages that don’t reach them on-the-fly.”
The capital resulting from eonBusiness’ investment will be used to further accelerate mobileStorm’s strategic growth, research and development, and to increase marketing and sales spending behind the mobileStorm brand.
For nearly a decade mobileStorm has pioneered the concept of digital marketing. Having successfully delivered more than 1 billion+ messages on behalf of thousands of premier customers such as Qantas Airways, MGM Grand, Palms Casino, Carl’s Jr., Squaw Valley Ski Resort and Buzznet.com, mobileStorm is at the forefront of the digital marketing revolution. The company provides a turnkey, hosted email and digital messaging platform backed by world-class support and expert digital marketing services. mobileStorm has created the most complete digital marketing solution available, enabling you to reach customers via email, text (mobile) messaging, voice messaging, fax broadcast or direct mail from a single provider.
