Over here at Mighty, we are experiencing the thrill of seeing a young, eager startup transform into a serious player in record time. Urban Airship is moving at the speed of mobile, which seems to be boundless right now. Fresh off their acquisition of SimpleGeo, The Airship just announced it’s new Series C. And the investors are top drawer– Salesforce.com and Verizon Ventures.
We are happy to see Urban flourish up in Portland and bring more credibility to the startup scene there, while serving as the place for the dev/hack/opensource/mobile communities to come together and geek out.
And, most surprisingly, the funding news did not leak! We take a mighty deep bow to everyone who helped pull this Sunday night news off.
