Unbounce Raises $850k to Accelerate Product Development for it’s Landing Page Platform

By , December 1st, 2011 in News | 27 comments

It’s not very often that Oli gives me the keys to the blog but today is an exception. On behalf of everyone at Unbounce, we are happy to announce that we have raised an $850K round of financing by a syndicate of tech investors lead by Mark MacLeod & Montreal based Real Ventures. The group includes Chris DeVore & Seattle based Founder Co-Op, Fred Destin & Boston based Atlas Ventures, Howard Lindzon & Social Leverage, Dave McClure & 500Startups, Christoph Janz & Point Nine Capital, as well as angel investors Boris Wertz, Mike Edwards, Rapleaf CEO Auren Hoffman, & Articulate CEO Adam Schwartz.

We are super excited to have this impressive group of successful entrepreneurs now part of the Unbounce story. Each one of them brings complimentary experience to the table, and collectively will be a great asset as we continue to grow Unbounce in the years to come. This comes on the heels of earlier seed investment by entrepreneurs Dan Martell, Eric Ries, Chris Goward, Grasshopper Group’s David Hauser as well as Dave McClure and others for a total of 950K raised this year.

For our customers, this is also great news. Having already achieved cash-flow positive, we don’t require this capital to maintain our current activities. Instead we’ll be able to invest in developing the capabilities and improvements that you’ve been asking for on a greatly accelerated schedule.

I want to thank everyone that has supported us to date, our early angel investors for taking a big risk, our new investors for giving us new opportunities, and most importantly, our customers for choosing Unbounce and helping us become the leading service of it’s kind.

2012 should be a great year for us all.

Sincerely,

– Rick Perreault, Co-Founder & CEO
