Corte Madera, CA – April 16, 2013 – Message Bus, the pioneer of cloud-native infrastructure for email, mobile and social messaging, is pleased to announce record momentum since closing $11 million in Series B funding from North Bridge Venture Partners, True Ventures, Ignition Partners, James Lindenbaum, Tim Young and Jesse Robbins six months ago: http://www.messagebus.com/startup-message-bus-raises-11-million-funding-.... The investors joined Chris Sacca, Biz Stone, Jack Dorsey, Max Levchin and David Liu as advisors to Message Bus.
“The market opportunity for Message Bus is to be the trusted cloud messaging layer for enterprises and email service providers who rely on the ability to send millions to billions of messages,” said Ken Cheney, President of Message Bus. “It used to be okay to have a time delay in customer communications or to have multiple, uncoordinated messages bombard a customer. Leading companies are investing in systems to support real-time customer engagement, where the right message is sent to the right person via the right channel and delivered at the right time. The Message Bus Platform is an industry first, helping modernize legacy infrastructure and messaging paradigms while providing a unified platform, available on demand in the cloud, to reduce CAPEX and simplify the job of sending personalized and timely communications.”
