It’s that time again. Another CTIA! Very pleased to see it back in New Orleans where the show was held pre-Katrina. Mighty will be there with the Urban Airship crew, who has hired the above antebellum mansion to throw a low-country crawfish boil party. After attending this event twice a year for the past 10, new experiences are needed to keep this act of businessing exciting. Throwing house parties in fun areas of the trade show city has been a major success for us and our clients, and this one should raise a new bar. See you there!
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.
