Vivek Sharma, Co-Founder and CEO of Movable Ink, spoke with AlleyWatch about our recently-announced $11 million Series B funding round. The new funding will enable Movable Ink to accelerate our aggressive growth, expand our global footprint, and further develop our platform to meet the increasing demand for agile email marketing solutions.
Below is an excerpt from Vivek’s interview with AlleyWatch. You can read the full Q&A here.
What was the funding process like working with some notable investors?
Far easier than raising our first $50,000! A seed round is a bigger leap of faith for an investor. B rounds require real traction, a great team, and multiple signals that a company can become a category leader. We also learned a lot about running an effective and streamlined fundraising process. You want to find the people that will be great partners to the company. We are delighted to be working with the team at Intel Capital.
