Fliplet raises first investment round
We are excited to announce that we have just received funding of over £500k. Our lead investor is Ben Wynne-Simmons, formerly of 3i and Barclays Private Equity, joined by a set of investors from marketing, finance, media and IT backgrounds. He said:
“Fliplet is offering an innovative product that is very much of its time. This is a team that is approaching the way people work with a ‘mobile first’ mentality, and with mobile-native millennials as the greatest incoming wave to the workforce the timing couldn’t be better.”
We couldn’t be happier about this news, and we would like to thank our investors, our great team, and most of all our clients for continuing to motivate us to work harder and to grow as a business.
This extraordinary funding will help us to continue meeting our goal to democratise the production of apps by helping businesses to create apps quickly, affordably and with no coding skills. It will help us boost our sales and marketing efforts in the UK, accelerate product enhancements, grow our reseller and partner network and expand into new markets.
Nick Francis, Director of the Digital & Mobile consultancy group at StrataPrime and partner of Fliplet said:
“Fliplet offers Mobile app solutions at a much lower price point helping speed up the development process or skip it all together so you not only get an almost immediate return on investment, but also greater control in creating the right apps to benefit your business.”
There couldn’t be a more exciting time to be in the enterprise apps industry, which is set to grow to $58 billion by 2016, and we are proud to be a part of the revolution.
We hope to continue empowering clients, promoting innovation and building great relationships with companies of all industries.
Martin Woolley, Managing Director of The Specialist Works, investor and client said:
“Fliplet has helped us to use mobile faster than we can use the web and we don’t require technical skills. It’s helped us to reduce the time it takes our team to report by as much as 50% and transformed how quickly we can produce mobile apps.”
