American Express Leads Clickable’s $12 Million Series C Funding
Today is another important day at Clickable.
A little more than a year ago we announced our partnership with American Express OPEN. With a shared vision of “helping businesses thrive,” we united American Express’s brand credibility and deep knowledge of small businesses with Clickable’s culture of product development, innovation and simplicity.
Our first collaborative offering was SearchManager, a solution to help advertisers and agencies simplify and improve their performance in search and social advertising. Most recently, we launched YourBuzz a full-service platform targeting local, small business owners with tools that help them establish and manage their online presence across a variety of social networks and directories, such as Bing, Citysearch, Facebook, Foursquare, Superpages, Twitter, Yahoo and Yelp.
Today, we’re excited to announce an even deeper partnership with American Express through their leadership in our $12 million series C funding. This latest financing round also includes our existing investors: Union Square Ventures, Founders Fund and FirstMark Capital. We’ve long benefited from some of the world’s most esteemed investors, and it’s a privilege to have American Express join that team.
With our new funding, we will continue to aggressively accelerate Clickable’s product innovation and market development throughout our entire portfolio of online advertising solutions. We’ll continue to market our products directly through the Clickable brand, as well as expand through premier partners like American Express OPEN. You can expect to see unequivocal leadership in emerging channels, like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, FourSquare and others. We intend for Clickable to become the dominant marketing platform that simplifies and integrates every major online channel, and deeply connect with the social graph.
Finally, since starting Clickable four years ago, I’ve never been more proud and confident in the Clickable team and our future, including our extended team at American Express. We will continue to collaborate, invent and deliver best-in-class solutions that help our customers thrive.
